The Downton Abbey cast were out in force yesterday filming the latest series in Oxfordshire – we spied the Grantham girls Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery), Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) and – yay, she’s back! – Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) on set.
All our faves were in costume – keeping the chill off between takes in modern-day puffa coats, natch - including Matthew Crawley, the Dowager Countess, Lady Cora, the servants.
We’ll confess our hearts stopped when we saw they were filming in a churchyard and the boys were in suits… could this be the death of a beloved character? But then we spied a wedding dress on a MAJOR character… We won’t give it away!
