Having Downton Abbey withdrawal? Of course you are. We all are. Thankfully, we’ve got a particularly fabulous tidbit to help get us through the (seemingly endless) wait for Series 5.
The Television Academy of Arts & Sciences hosted a special event for its members in Los Angeles on May 3rd which featured appearances by several members of the Downton cast and crew and was streamed live over the internet as it happened. Part Series 4 retrospective, part general show discussion, there’s plenty of fun here for all who love the megahit costume drama.
Stars Joanne Froggatt, Phyllis Logan, Sophie McShera and Robert James-Collier all took part, along with series creator Julian Fellowes and executive producer Gareth Naeme. It was actually pretty fun to watch some members of the cast who may not get in front of the media as frequently get the chance to shine. McShera, for example, is completely adorable, and I promise you’ll be so charmed by James-Collier that you’ll basically forget how much you hate Thomas.
