Downton Abbey stars are on the Town & Country’s October 2019 cover, on newsstands Sept 19th.
Downtown Abbey is in theaters this Friday but first, here for T&C, the three co-stars open up about their camaraderie on and off set, what it was like to film after the series gained popularity, and the difficulty of keeping the film’s ending a secret.
Allen Leech on Downton’s success in the U.S.: “If it had been on one of those major networks, or one you have to pay for, they would have pushed it too hard. Downton had to be discovered. It had to have that slow build.”
Michelle Dockery on filming once Downton had a cult following: “When we came back to filming, it felt the same. It was like just going back to work, seeing your mates.”
Laura Carmichael on keeping the film’s ending a secret: “I wouldn’t know what to tell you.” Images courtesy of Town & Country. (source)
