Less than a month removed from the final episode of series 4 of Downton Abbey, separation anxiety has set for most of the U.S. With filming for series 5 of the all-time British period drama favorite in full swing and everyone trying to figure out just what is in Julian Fellowes’ mind palace, it’s kinda cool to see the cast actually trying to figure out what might be in store for them this season. What could possibly be ahead for your favorite Downton Abbey characters in series 5?
In this exclusive interview for PBS’ Masterpiece series, series stars Robert James-Collier (Thomas), Laura Carmichael (Edith), Allen Leech (Branson) and Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore) were asked to tell candidly what they most wish for their characters.
Have to say, can’t argue with any of their wishes. I could go for Branson with a spine and a knock-down drag-out between Mrs. Patmore and the Dowager, herself. How about you?
