Downton Abbey film sequel ‘on the cards’ as star drops major hint

Downton Abbey star Elizabeth McGovern opened up about the much-anticipated film – and even hinted that a sequel could be on the cards.

The 57-year-old actress, who plays Lady Crawley in the Emmy-winning series, appeared on This Morning to tease details about the upcoming movie.

Downton aired from 2010 for five years until 2015 and followed the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their staff in the post-Edwardian era.

Asked by avid fans Holly and Phil whether the Downton film, which is coming out four years after the TV series ended, would live up to expectations, she said: "I think so, it's certainly our intention. I haven't seen it yet, it's for the fans."

Confirming that the film takes place a year from where it left off, she said: "It felt like we'd never left. it really is a bit like a family, we've been through so much together.

"You slot right back in [with] all the old dynamics."

But Elizabeth admitted that she had her reservations about the film being made due to filming conflicts with the huge cast.

She exclaimed: "I never thought they would [manage it] – it's such a large cast!"

Holly questioned her on whether there would be a sequel, she said: "All doors are always left open."

Earlier this week the Downton Abbey trailer was finally released and shows the estate preparing for a royal visit.
