Cast talks ‘Downton Abbey’ season 4, sushi and life with Dan Stevens

The cast and producers of PBS/Masterpiece’s Downton Abbey visited Los Angeles and the THR released a 30 minute video on June 20 as the discussed the Emmy-nominated drama.

Downton Abbey cast posterActress Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley) was quick to praise the sushi in California leading the group to praise America’s folks and food.

One of the key topics is dealing with the large backlash that came following the exit of Dan Stevens and the death of Matthew Crawley, which was very difficult for a number of reasons. The cast say they weren’t just losing a beloved character, but they were losing a friend that you enjoyed spending time with.

Dockey, Joanne Froggatt (Anna Bates) and co-stars Rob James Collier (Thomas Barrow) and Elizabeth McGovern (Countess Cora Crawley) with executive producer Gareth Neame and series creator Julian Fellowes, reveal how they coped with the “sudden, untimely death of” of departed co-star

“It was all a bit testing, wasn’t it?”admits Fellowes. “I have a business degree, so I’d probably have a dull office job!” admitted one of the actors.

Of course an overview of notable moments from the third season, and what made being a part of it so special … even with the first two seasons of the show in mind, led into a few hints at what to expect during the upcoming fourth season, without of course giving too much away.

PBS has announced that Downton Abbey will be back in January.

The eight-week scheduled run of the hit English period drama to run through the end of February.
