Downton Abbey Television

Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re delighted to announce that Downton Abbey will be back for a phenomenal fifth series.

Audience figures for the fourth series have hit an average 11.8 million viewers – making it the highest rated drama on television in 2013.

Once again Julian Fellowes will be putting pen to paper as writer of the new series and will continue Executive Producing duties with Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge.

Gareth had this to say:
“We promise all the usual highs and lows, romance, drama and comedy played out by some of the most iconic characters on television.

“All the actors and makers of the show continue to be humbled by the extraordinary audience response and want to take the show from strength to strength next year”.

Viewers can look forward to the return of Downton Abbey on Christmas Day, with a 2 hour feature episode which will see Shirley MacLaine reprise her role as Martha Levinson and Paul Giamatti join the cast as Cora’s playboy brother, Harold along side all the much loved regular characters of the show.

Downton Abbey Interviews Television

The current season of Downton Abbey is set to come to a close this weekend and Lily James has now spoken out about her time on the show, saying that she would “love” to star in a fifth series.

Michelle Dockery previously revealed that the “core cast” had all signed up for another run and Lily, who plays Lady Rose MacClaire has now told Digital Spy that she would also love to return.

“I’d love to [do it],” the actress told the website, adding: “I’m really enjoying developing her.

“In the first year, she was in a bit of a whirlwind, a bit intense, so it’s been really fun playing her this [fourth] series to find lights and shades and see the more sensitive side to her.”

Lily also added that she was intrigued by the possibility of a Downton Abbey movie.

“Why not?” said the 24-year-old. “[Though] our Christmas special is two hours anyway, so I guess they’d have to do something a bit different with it.”

Cinderella Movies

Lily James has been wowing as she waltzes in the big-screen, live action Cinderella.
Lily has already cut a rug, dancing in Downton Abbey, as the vivacious Lady Rose.

But on the set of the fabled fairytale the actress has been floating around on a sound stage at Pinewood Studios, to the strains of a newly composed waltz by Oscar-nominated composer Patrick Doyle, with a little help from choreographer Rob Ashford.

Lily plays the title role opposite Richard Madden as Prince Charming and Cate Blanchett as her not entirely wicked stepmother (she’s more resentful and miffed than out-and-out evil).

Helena Bonham Carter, with a milk-white perm and gown to match, is the fairy godmother. And Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera play Cinder-ella’s stepsisters.

Doyle’s score for the Disney movie is going to have audiences humming and dah-dah-dahing happily ever after. Listening to it as I watched a ballroom scene, where Lily and Richard were all but flying, I was unable to stop myself bobbing from side to side in time with the music. I looked around and spotted several burly crewmen swaying, too.

A FORMER Tring pupil is filming the lead role for a movie directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Lily James will play Cinderella in the Disney film, alongside Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother, Game Of Thrones star Richard Madden as Prince Charming and Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother.

The 24-year-old studied Musical Theatre at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, where she boarded until she was 18.

She credits her time there as giving her the foundations of a successful acting career, gaining confidence and self esteem.

She counts a group of Tring Park alumni as her best friends. Lily said: “I am still amazed at the success I have had since leaving Tring Park. I credit my time there as really giving me the grounding and acting skills to succeed in the world of entertainment. They encouraged me to be confident in my abilities, while nurturing my dedication and drive for acting.”

Since leaving Tring she has worked consistently; appearing in the film, the Wrath of the Titans, TV shows such as The Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Just William and performing in the stage production of Playhouse by Martin Crimp at the Richmond Orange Tree theatre and in Othello with The Wire actor Dominic West in Sheffield.
