Downton Abbey 3: season 3 portraits
To accompany their recent behind the scenes article on the new series of Downton Abbey, now airing in the US with over 7 million viewers, the LA Times uploaded a gallery of cast portraits, including 2 lovely photos of Dan.
Remember to read the article in full as it contains some brief Dan tit-bits and interview (with spoilers!).
Next to arrive is Dan Stevens, otherwise known as Matthew Crawley, "Downton" heir and Mary's fiance. After explaining that he's sleep deprived (his wife gave birth to their second child just two weeks before), he disappears into his trailer for a nap.
On top of producing a newborn, Stevens is also producing a movie with old friends, editing a literary magazine (thejunket.org) and planning a move to New York (he's starring in "The Heiress" on Broadway). He'd also agreed to be a judge for a prestigious literary award, the Man Booker Prize, which meant reading scores of books while running lines for the TV series.
He insists that he's not usually someone who takes on too much: "It's just a freaky year where it's all come to a head. I said yes to a few too many things. Next year will be the year of saying no."
