    Of course I voted for Dan, He is one intelligent ,talented, and classy gentleman, who just happens to be blazingly good looking. Love the casual elegance about him. No contest!

    still a Dan & Michelle fan myself....but as always, Dan is gorgeous no matter what. Hope to see more of this type of scene in Downton Abbey. Bring it on!

  • Reply to: Sunday Telegraph August column & Summer in February photo   5 years 1 week ago

    What a lovely, lovely romantic photo. Just what Dan's-fan"s have been wishing for! Thank you for bringing it to us. Pray the film will be released here in the US as well. Looking forward to his July Telegraph column, he is just the complete package.

    This photo makes me wish the film was due for immediate release! Such a tender and gentle feeling about this - beautifully captured. P Giles

    I agree with the above, though probably there are reasons, (economic?,) we don't know about. I would order every audio book Dan has made, if it were possible to do so here in the US. Perhaps by the time he has appeared on Broadway in "The Heiress", and then season 3 of Downton, the powers that be will come to their senses and make them available here. Just a passing thought by the way, but Dan would make a perfect Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley in the Elizabeth George series of books. He has the exact good looks, speech, and demeanor of that character. Know its been done on BBC a while back, but....that was before Dan!

    Why isn't this CD, narrated by Dan, with an interview with Dan, not available in the United States?
    Why are we treated as poor relations? Don't the production and distribution companies know how many fans he has here in America? Not too smart!

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: onset interview with Dan for ITN   5 years 2 weeks ago

    Just caught Dan's interview re Shirley MacLaine, can't imagine anyone taking any offense at something so totally inoffensive. Especially, Shirley herself who can be brutally outspoken. Dan was, as always, a gentleman. With a twinkle in his eye! Wonder what she said that he won't repeat....

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: onset interview with Dan for ITN   5 years 2 weeks ago

    I got it all wrong - Dan's interview is back on ITN News website - it is worth a look.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: onset interview with Dan for ITN   5 years 2 weeks ago

    I agree with the other comments .....Dan was just being truthful. Shirley MacLaine is bonkers, but not in a bad sense...I am sure he meant it as a "she's funny and weird at the same time" kind of meaning. I don't think there's anything wrong with what he said. After all, she has to have at least as much spunk as Maggie Smith to be a match for her. In the end, only Dan knows what he meant and he's not a mean guy.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: onset interview with Dan for ITN   5 years 2 weeks ago

    "Bonkers but delightful...." couldn't be a more apt description of Shirley MacLaine! As an American, I have observed her long, successful career and she's always fun to watch. (But a bit off the rails, which is part of her "charm"....a quirk shared with many in the acting field)
    Keeping my fingers crossed that Dan will indeed be back for series 4. It will help buy those "nappies", Dan!!

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: onset interview with Dan for ITN   5 years 2 weeks ago

    Do hope that Dan hasn't been given a rap over the knuckles for saying that Shirley MacLaine was bonkers but delightful, cos his amusing interview has been removed from the ITN News website. But I am relieved and thrilled to note that it is likely that Dan, Michelle and Iain Glen will be in a fourth series. Fireworks, drama and intrigue to continue - great.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: Cult Box press launch report   5 years 2 weeks ago

    We who love Downton Abbey and especially Matthew and Mary, deserve a gorgeous wedding and a "happily ever after" love scene. I expect no less! We don't need, or want, graphic, leave that to the porno crowd. But don't slam the door in our face either. Sensitivity and the sensuous can go hand in hand just beautifully. C'mon, Julian, do not let us down...we have been waiting 2 years!

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: Cult Box press launch report   5 years 3 weeks ago

    He looks cross and Mary looks smug. LOL

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: Cult Box press launch report   5 years 3 weeks ago

    Lady Mary looks very sweet, but Matthew does not look as tho he actually enjoying himself!. Perhaps she has just said "No", ! But Matthews photos are usually terrific and wondered whether this "look" is to suggest all is not well? Havent a clue really, Pat Giles

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: Cult Box press launch report   5 years 3 weeks ago

    oops. Sorry, I didn't see the picture you were referring to. I see what you mean. However, I llike to think that things are fairly happy with them, although I did hear they have a row. I am getting tired of the arguing.
    Also, I just read the article on the first episode preview screening. The person writing the article is suggesting that there are no sex scenes in it because Maggie didn't think it proper. I would be very disappointed that they would just "close the door". It doesn't have to be explicit, but give the viewers something - more than a 3 or 4 second kiss like we've been getting in the last two series. I don't watch shows that show a lot of sex, I just hope it will be more than just a suggestion. Please Julian. Go with your audience.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: Cult Box press launch report   5 years 3 weeks ago

    what look are your referring to?

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: Cult Box press launch report   5 years 3 weeks ago

    What has Lady Mary said to Matthew to make hm look so "afraid" "fearful" - It doesnt look good maybe they've had a row!! Pat Giles ( comments made are usually anonmynous) Why ? nothing to hide! Methinks Mary knows something about Matthew and he's miffed.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey: series 3 cast photo   5 years 3 weeks ago

    I am hoping that Matthew has learned how to handle Mary's temper and outspokenness and not let it bother him. After 7 or 8 years, he has gained a rod of steel in his back (not literally), and knows that his love for her, and her love for him, is strong enough to help her get over her criticisms. He needs to apply a lot of love and kisses to keep her soft and be the strong one between the two of them. She's strong, but she needs him to help her remain balanced and unafraid. Together, they are the perfect heirs to Downton Abbey. His sweet boyish charm can disarm any woman, and looking into his beautiful blue eyes....well "who can resist" - when it's Matthew (Dan). I hope the show does not short change its viewers by keeping the love scenes to a few seconds (my biggest criticism of the first two episodes. One kiss per season, and only a few seconds, at that). Please have some mercy on us!!! Don't you know we live for those momens between the two of them?

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey: series 3 cast photo   5 years 3 weeks ago

    I don't think Lavinia was all that neglected. Mrs. Crawley seemed to spend time with her, as did Matthew. I think even Carlisle must have gone in and visited her, otherwise he wouldn't have known about Mary & Matthew. And it seemed she was not as bad as Cora, that she was going to come through it. Hence, not the urgency. Spoken like a true lawyer. It was a "suddenly" in her case. Nothing you could do about that.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey: series 3 cast photo   5 years 3 weeks ago

    My comment as a retired attorney and a big fan of (swoon) gorgeous Dan, about Lavinia's death, (when I first saw that episode), is that she was left alone all afternoon and almost through the 'pick up' dinner, while there were at least two-three people caring for Cora. In my opinion, Lavinia was neglected by the family and the doctor before she died. They should have had at least a housemaid sitting in or just outside the room, to keep on eye on her. Especially when Cora was showing such serious symptoms. As the doctor commented as Lavinia was dying --"it is a savage disease!" I hope I am wrong, but if I were Mr. Swire, I would have contacted my attorney before I died to look into the matter. In my opinion, Lavinia was seriously neglected, making the Downton family possibly liable for damages for her death.
    The only other issue the attorney might be raising, is that Lavinia may have left her estate, whatever it is worth, to Matthew, not to her father! Hope that is right!

    Great new cast photo...all my favorites, plus one. Like our neighbors in Canada, we in the US depend on what" bits and bobs" (good Heavens, I'm starting to talk like a Brit) of Downton news we can get, without ruining Season 3 for ourselves. Matthew, you go boy, and Mary better deserve you, finally. And I predict good news from Lavinia's family lawyer. Maybe, Matthew will turn out to be the really, really rich one!!! And as far as I am concerned "Downton Abbey" beat "Mad Men" from its first episode.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey: series 3 cast photo   5 years 3 weeks ago

    Looking forward to "all sorts of things" not just the wedding. Go for it Matthew!!! And I sure hope Mary is too. We are too. Can hardly wait..except January is still too far off - Wish I lived in the UK right now. You guys don't realize what you've done to us westerners do you (Canada & US)? We can't wait for Series 3 - so we have to keep in the Downton way every way we can - re-watching Series 1 & 2, watching Youtube videos, websites, tweets (I don't know how to do that yet).... You get the picture. We're completely ruined. Love the new cast photo. It's going to be really weird to see Branson with the family - I am sure Alan Leech will prove to be as colourful as he was in 1 & 2. Love his Irishness that he brings to the show. Like Lord Grantham loves to say, "shake us up a bit" is what we need. You shook them up a bit too. Took Mary by surprise (all those aristocratic fellas did not come close to you). Did you notice in the Christmas special when you were shooting, the irony that Mary was making fun that you did not hunt in the first series, but in the end, she absolutely loved you when you were loading your gun and the look on her face was, "that's what I love about you", you don't try to do everything perfectly. And for the record, Pamuk had nothing on you - you were and are the better man. She just didn't realize it at the time. Love the PBS interview last December on Michelle's birthday. The Los Angeles interview on Youtube (with Joanne F. and Michelle) - the interviewer I am sure did not watch even one episode of DA. When she asked Michelle if she (Mary) was pregnant, you guys both laughed out loud. She thought Michelle was referring to her "big mistake" as getting pregnant, not that Mary had refused your proposal. Mary would have your babies, I know. Love you.

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: set photos on PuzzlePix   5 years 3 weeks ago

    I Cannot believe that the writers of DA would ever be so foolish as to "kill off" Matthew. To millions of the Downton/Matthew fans, that would be the death of the entire series. Dan, you are a young man with a great career ahead of you, and the talent to play many, many roles. In the meantime...just think how many "nappies" (as you Brits call them) Downton can pay for! Looking forward to your New York Broadway debut this fall, you certainly will bring your own unique style of class to that stage. Good Luck in all things....

  • Reply to: Downton Abbey 3: set photos on PuzzlePix   5 years 3 weeks ago

    Dan, what's this about killing you off in Series 3? Please don't. I don't know why they would do that, except that you feel you're being type-cast - so what? If that's what they do, then DA is a tragedy - not a story that gives one hope for the kind of love and wonderful feeling it gives all of us who love you and Michelle. We beg you to stay on - even for a series 4. I doubt they will go longer than that. Your talent will transcend DA. You have a purity in you that I think has caught all of us unawares, as we have watched actors over the years - you have something special, and Michelle. Don't let the fame destroy that pure instinctive raw acting sense you have. You're true blue. We love you. You and Michelle are so totally instinctive with each other, like we've never seen. Don't be afraid of that. It's what you have. Your good looks, sexy voice (it's true) and pure Britishness is so refreshing. We finally have a star we can truly admire and love. I've never felt like this before. But you have captivated the hearts of millions of people around the world. You and Michelle are Downton Abbey - without you, there is no Downton Abbey. America could only wish they had someone like you.

    A loyal fan,

    Dan, don't know where you get the idea that romance is dead. You, of all men in the world, should know that a woman, no matter how liberated she thinks she is, always needs love and romance in her life. That is why I find Julian Fellowes statement about growing up with strong women around him kind of tainted his view of women. Being strong doesn't make you less a woman. First of all, he makes Mary way too argumentative. She's strong, but in case you didn't notice it, when you (Matthew) and she were walking in the woods after she told you about her "secret" she'd been keeping from you, and you expected her to weather the storm alone, she confessed she wasn't that strong. She needed you to come along side her to fight the storm. She needed you to put your arms around her and comfort her, not just with words, but with physical touch. She is incredibly strong considering how kind she was to Lavinia, in spite of her own feelings for you.
    One thing I liked about the show was how it portrayed the two of you as having matured. You were much more your own man, not trying to find your way in that big pool, having proved yourself in the war. You were not only a good man, but a brave man. Mary softened when she realized that she loved you whether you became Earl or not. It was her secret that kept her from accepting your first proposal - being afraid of what you would think of her, and then rejecting her. I've often wondered what you would have done if she had told you back then. Would you have been strong enough to accept her as she was?
    Finally, I've heard that you and Mary have an argument in the 3rd series again. Doesn't Julian know that there is more to your relationship than arguing? You guys are friends and are great together - love literature, you dance wonderfully, you can tease each other and have great laughs together......there's the glue. Tell Julian to stop making you guys argue all the time please.

    When will Dan;s July article for the Telegraph be available online? I love his writing. Did I miss this.? And...as long as there are articulate, intelligent....and handsome gentlemen, there will always be romance alive and well in a feminine heart. Keep the flame alive, Dan!!
