Hello everyone! I’m Nicole and I used to run Lily James Source. Due to the change of hosting and some other problems, Lora and I decided to merge our sites and run one together! This way we could have a bigger and most complete source for all your Lily James needs. More updates and news will be done in the next few days, in the meantime, we’re updating with the latest event Lily attended.

On Tuesday (August 11th), she attended the BAFTA tribute celebration in honor of Downton Abbey and its last series. The event was held at the Richmond Theatre in London, and Lily wore a sleek white Ulyana Sergeenko cocktail dress and pumps with a fur pom-pom (not much a fan of her look to be honest, but she did look great anyway!). Several photos from the event have been added to the gallery, with big thanks to our friend Hailey for helping us with some!

VARIETY – “Downton Abbey” will end after season six, PBS and producer Carnival Films announced Thursday.

Gareth Neame, Carnival’s mmanaging director and executive producer of “Downton Abbey,” said in a statement: “Millions of people around the world have followed the journey of the Crawley family and those who serve them for the last five years. Inevitably, there comes a time when all shows should end, and ‘Downton’ is no exception. We wanted to close the doors of ‘Downton Abbey’ when it felt right and natural for the storylines to come together and when the show was still being enjoyed so much by its fans. We can promise a final season full of all the usual drama and intrigue, but with the added excitement of discovering how and where they all end up.”

“PBS and our member stations have been so proud to be the home of ‘Downton Abbey’ on Masterpiece in the United States,” said Paula Kerger, president and CEO, PBS. “We, like the fans, simply cannot wait to see what will happen to the Crawley family and their beloved staff as this incredible series culminates in Season 6. The series has enjoyed such success over the past five seasons, and we’ll certainly be working alongside Carnival, Masterpiece and PBS member stations to make Season 6 the biggest yet. Until then, Sunday nights on PBS continue to offer fans a full slate of ‘must view’ British and, soon, American historical drama.”

“Downton Abbey” is the top PBS drama of all time, the most popular series in “Masterpiece’s” 44-year history and a consistent ratings winner, with season five averaging 12.9 million viewers over its nine-week run, with over 12.6 million streams of full episodes digitally. The series has earned 51 Emmy nominations to date, winning 11, along with three Golden Globes, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Producers Guild Award, and three BAFTAs.

“‘Downton Abbey’ has been a television executive’s dream come true: a beautifully made, returning series that captures a nation’s attention and becomes a household name. It’s been a game-changer for ‘Masterpiece,’” said “Masterpiece” executive producer Rebecca Eaton. “We are indebted to our U.K. partners for making a show which will go down in television history, not just for its impeccable writing, acting and production values, but most importantly, for its enormously warm-hearted audience appeal.”

DEADLINE – It is Christmas 1919 all over again. Like the Season 2 finale of British drama Downton Abbey, which culminated with Matthew’s proposal to Lady Mary, last night’s Season 5 closer ended with another long-awaited proposal, between downstairs favorites Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes.

Romance dominated the episode, which aired as a standalone Christmas special in the U.K., with love chapters closing for Lady Violet and Isobel and potential new ones opening for Lady Mary and Lady Edith. Also closing the Downton chapters of their lives for now were Tom and Lady Rose, both set out for new lives in America.

I spoke with Downton Abbey executive producer Gareth Neame about the developments in the finale and what to expect from Season 6. With Lily James and Allen Leech’s feature careers taking off and their characters heading to America, will we see them next season? And will the show and its creator Julian Fellowes carry on, or Season 6 be Downton‘s last? (Hint: Neame’s answer involves Mad Men creator Matt Weiner.)

Deadline: America has been a recurring theme on Downton Abbey, mostly through Cora’s origins. The Season 5 finale took that to a new level, with two main characters, Tom and Lady Rose, headed to the New World. You have cautioned that filming in the U.S. is too expensive but in Season 6, will the Crawleys finally come to America?
Neame: I would absolutely love to bring the Crawleys to America. A couple of episodes in Newport or Boston or New York. It would be a complete thrill. But production costs associated with such a visit would be prohibitive to our partners, plus we have so much more story to tell in England.
