While I’m glad to see Maggie Smith is part of the cast, I thought she previously announced that she would not appear in the follow up movie. I wonder why she changed her mind? $$$ is my guess.

Exactly how old is her character, the Dowager Countess, suppose to be in this movie? 106???

Not quite 106. According to fandom.com, her character was born in 1842. So in the new film she would be 85. I am glad she is in the movie.

I don’t care if she was 200. I would be glad to pay to to see Violet and her entourage.
She really is a grande dame. Oh, the movie will just be a tease. I want it back every week. They are still looking good, every one!

I wish Violet were revealed to be an immortal because I certainly don’t want to ever imagine a Downtown Abbey without her! She is quite simply “The Jewel in the (Crawley) Crown,” and from this newest trailer, it’s highly apparent that Dame Maggie has resumed her most famous role without missing a beat! I’m such an ardent fan of hers that I’ve suggested were this franchise to jump too far ahead into the future for the Dowager Countess to still reasonably remain on their mortal coil, that she should be a narrator from beyond the grave so as to deliver her endless string of patented bon mots and pithy commentary!!!! At least hearing her voice would be better than facing the prospect of a DA with no Violet at all! Having said that, I’ve also suggested that if Downton survives into the mid-to-late twentieth century, that an aged Lady Mary be portrayed by Smith, as I can easily envisage that character being every bit as opinionated and biting in her old age as her very vinegary grandmama!!!!
