Lady Mary Takes A Lover? Who Will She Choose? Downton Abbey U.S. Premiere Sunday!



Finally, U.S. audiences will get to see season five of the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated series from across the pond, Downton Abbey!

As the season begins this Sunday, Lady Mary, the oh-so-talented Michelle Dockery,is front and center! The question is: after having two suitors last season Lord Tony Gillingham (Tom Cullen) and Charles (Julian Ovenden), has she  made her choice for her next lover ? Will she hit the sheets with one of these handsome and sexy gents?  Can she put aside her past with the deceased Matthew, and build a life for herself and her child with someone new?

According to TV Guide, “Mary considers a gentleman caller’s indecent proposal as they converse in her bedroom. Her one caveat if she is to agree to the tryst: ‘No one must ever find out.”‘  As far as which gent she choose between Charles and Lord Gillingham, Dockery shared “She’s leaning toward one of them … but both are handsome, eligible men.”

“The forging of a second marriage is a complicated business,” executive producer Gareth Naeme of Downton Abbey related.

So which gent do you want to see Lady Mary with?  Charles or Tony?  Let us know in the comment section below, and remember to tune-in Sunday night, January 4th to PBS Masterpiece for episode one of season five beginning at 9PMET/8CST!

I hope it’s Lord Gillingham because he’s drop dead gorgeous. Not that Charles is ugly either.

IT’S OFFICIAL: Downton Abbey The Movie To Go Into Production This Summer

The highly-anticipated and rumored revival of Downton Abbey to the big screen is on!  Production is slated to begin later this summer.

From what we understand, all of the original cast is set to reprise their signature roles in the motion picture, written by series creator Julian Fellowes.

Fellowes will also serve as the executive producer along with other ‘Downton’ notables behind the scenes: Gareth Neame, Liz Trubridge, and Nigel Marchant. Brian Percival is set to direct.  Percival also directed the pilot episode of the critically-acclaimed and beloved period soap opera series.

In a statement, Gareth Neame expressed: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production.  Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as Downton comes to the big screen.”

Focus Features chairman, Peter Kujawski, shared: “Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter. We’re thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of Downton to the big screen.”

Downton Abbey ran for six seasons on PBS  and received 15 Primetime Emmy awards and 69 nominations.

Actress Joanne Froggatt, who plays maid Anna Bates, took to Twitter with much enthusiasm at the news: “Delighted to announce we’re getting the band back together! #DowntonMovie #DowntonAbbey”

So, thrilled to hear the Downton Abbey movie is happening? Comment below.

It looks like all of those earlier reports months ago about a production being put together for Downton Abbey: The Movie, may finally becoming to fruition. Numerous items detail that motion picture project is moving forward with production slated for sometime next year.

Michael Edelstein, president at NBCUniversal International Studios, told the AP: “We are working on getting the script right and then we’ve got to figure out how to get the (cast) together. Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we’re hopeful to make a movie sometime next year.”

Currently, the cast and writer Julian Fellowes have been on hand at the Downton Abbey exhibition which debuted in Singapore. However, some notable members of the company seemed surprised by the news including Laura Carmichael (Edith): “Well, tell my agent, because we’re still waiting to know. We’re hoping that will happen soon.”

Variety reports that an NBCUniversal spokesman confirmed the studio hopes to put the movie into production in 2018.
