Downton Abbey star Lily James has revealed Lady Rose is about to shake things up at the estate and help the Crawley family gradually come out of mourning for Matthew as they move on with their lives.
The young aristocrat has recently come to stay with the family and wants to use the opportunity to really let her hair down. But she might find that’s a little tricky at first…
“Rose is a bit of a rule breaker, I think she’s quite angry. She’s been restrained and had all these rules since she was a tiny girl, and she just wants to live life and behave in a way she’s seeing other girls do,” Lily explained in an exclusive interview with stv.tv.
“There was this move of the flapper and partying and she wants to follow suit but in the wrong environment.”
The young star continued: “Rose is so happy to escape Scotland, but obviously she’s come into a house that’s in mourning, and it’s really sad. Rose really had a soft spot for Matthew Crawley, she felt an alliance with him. So all of them are affected. The feeling is weighted and miserable.”
Last month, Lily attended a press day for ‘Downton Abbey’ and here is a video interview (3:54).
Lily and ‘Downton Abbey’ co-star Laura Carmichael have answered a few questions, followed by a beautiful photoshoot together for Naked Undies. Enjoy!

Sophie will actually play one of the evil step sisters — Drizella – to her “Downton” co-star, Lily James, who is playing the titular character. (On “Downton” Lily plays Lady Rose, one of the members of the family who Sophie’s character, Daisy, cooks for.)
“It’s very exciting ‘cause I’m going upstairs and Lily’s going downstairs. Tables have turned! I’m gonna be lording it over her. I’m going to be so cruel,” Sophie joked when AccessHollywood.com spoke to her at PBS’ Television Critics Association Summer Tour day last week.
