Watch ‘Downton Abbey’ cast being quizzed on how well they know each other

It’s over a decade since the stars of Downton Abbey first started working together…

But how much do the actors in ITV’s hit period drama series know about their fellow cast members?

Rob James Collier (Thomas), Lesley Nicol (Mrs Patmore), Michael C Fox (Andrew), Sophie Mc Shera (Daisy), and Kevin Doyle (Mr Molesley) took part in a quiz for Grazia magazine to find out.

Do you know which Downton star is a Friends superfan? Or who had to change their name when they started acting? How about whose dog has dabbled in acting?

Watch the video here:


A follow-up to 2019’s Downton Abbey movie will hopefully start shooting in the coming months, all the regular characters returning.

Sir Robert actor Hugh Bonneville recently had this good news for fans: “There is a script, it has been written and seen, but a little thing called coronavirus got in the way of us filming it. It would be lovely to think that later this year the cameras could start rolling.”

The sequel is expected to be released later this year if all goes to plan!

Meanwhile, watch the Downton cast reveal the funniest encounters they’ve had with fans over the years.

Downton Abbey: The Complete Collection box set is available on DVD on Amazon.
