Phyllis Logan has described Downton Abbey as “one of the best gigs of my life” and can’t wait to begin filming the long-awaited movie.
The 61-year-old actress played housekeeper Mrs Hughes in all six seasons of the hit period drama.
Logan told the Daily Mail: “To have a last hurrah with all the characters, going back to the castle and seeing all the old muckers will be fantastic. I’m certainly up for it.”
She added: “It was a great show to do and a great character to play and I will forever think fondly of Mrs Hughes. In fact, it was one of the best gigs of my life and opened up so many other avenues and put a different spin on my career.”
Phyllis Logan’s new ITV drama Girlfriends is airing at 9pm on Wednesday nights in the UK.
Downton Abbey: The Complete Collection is available to buy now.
Hugh Bonneville, who played Robert Crawley, has described reuniting the Downton cast to shoot the movie as “like herding cats.”
