Action movie guy is a big fan as well

My dear husband loves action/war movies, but he is now a big fan of Downton Abbey. Dan Stevens' sensitive and intelligent portrayal of Matthew Crawley is a big part of gaining this fan.

We also enjoy reading Dan's writing on the Junket and the UK Telegraph editorials. It is so refreshing to find an actor who has the intellect, good manners to match his acting skills! And such a good family man as well!

Dan was perfect as Edward Ferrars (BBC's Sense and Sensibility)

If you have not seen Dan Stevens in the BBC's Masterpiece Adaptation of "Sense and Sensibility" - please watch it ASAP - buy the DVD, rent it from Netflix, check it out from your local library!!

As much as I love Emma Thompson's big screen production of "Sense and Sensibility" - this BBC version is far better as the actors/actresses are of the right ages to play the characters Jane Austen wrote for her story.

Dan Stevens is the perfect Edward Ferrars! And now, with more acting experience since his BBC role in S & S, I believe he will be the perfect Mr. Darcy!

Proud to be English! :)

I first saw him on Downton Abbey after hearing so much of it and bought the entire box set. His acting is fantastic and his eyes are unnaturally blue! His English is impeccable too! I was sad to see him leave Downton Abbey but I wish him luck in his future career. Mr Stevens makes me proud to be English!!! :)

Have I Got News For You

The first time I saw Dan was when he hosted "Have I Got News For You" and was totally mesmerised by his charm, wit and the most incredible eyes I have ever seen. I admit that I had to run a Google search to find out who he was, but gathered that he was part of the Downton Abbey cast after it was mentioned briefly during the show.

Living with someone who is definitely not a fan of period dramas, I had never watched the series, but was drawn to view some clips on YouTube. That was enough to get me hooked, so I bought the entire series on DVD and watched it over a period of two weeks. I am so glad that I did! My 12-year-old daughter has also become a huge fan of the series. She was off school yesterday with a virus and said that a dose of Downton Abbey was better than any medicine. :-)

As a writer myself, I am also impressed by Dan's writing style. How refreshing it is to read articles by someone who adheres to the rules of impeccable English. (I have even been known to "mark" school newsletters and return them in my daughter's school bag, much to her horror).

Can't wait for series 3 of Downton. :-D

Dan Stevens

I am an English period movie & TV fanatic.
I have loved many others who have played these wonderful rolls- Colin Firth
is one of my favourites-
I first saw Dan in "Sense & Sensibilty" thought he was so perfect for the
part of Edward- He can truly get accross the feelings of the script & more.

When Downton Abbey was announced Series one- Masterpiece Theare
is my favourite- I watched EVERY episode- then bought the first series
which I watch over & over.Could hardly wait for Series 2 to start. I have
pre-ordered this DVD also- I am totally hooked. 72 yrs old- live in Southern
California- with my husband of 48 yrs My father was born in
England & grandparents I'm in awe at every little tidbit of history, costumes, just
everything about the show & great talent the CAST Writers, Producers
etc. Maggie Smith is brilliant. Thanks for producing the show & bless you
that you will be able to continue with this educational project.
Sincerely

What first brought Dan to your attention

I just sat through 14 hours of the audiobook of Ken Follett's "Fall of Giants", (my favourite author); his work was thoroughly complemented by an incredibly gifted actor bringing all the characters to life. Great job indeed!

why not make 'the line of

why not make 'the line of beauty' one of the choices?
I know a lot of people here get to know you from this TV drama.

Dan Stevens in person

On Aug. 2, 2011 I had the great pleasure of meeting Dan Stevens in person, here in Seattle, WA I found him to be exciting, charming, ebullient and attentive. I am a complete fan. I now have an autographed picture with him and other Downton Abbey cast members, Michelle Dockery and Elizabeth MacGovern, They were all meeting in Seattle, WA and greeting supporters of PPS/Downton Abbey seen on KCTS. We were all given a prelude review of DA2. How's that for an enviable treat!

When I met Dan

I noticed him in "Sense Sensibility", and I thought it was really special and very suitable for the part! Then I saw him again in Downton Abbey, and I realized that it is an actor capable of playing any role, not only the ingenuous!

My First Dan Encounter

I first encountered Dan in The Line of Beauty. I have been a complete
fan ever since. It was his beguiling smile, captivating eyes and his
innocent, refreshing demeanor. I try to see everything he's done.
I hope to see him on stage.

New fan

Since watching Downton Abbey I purchased the BBC version of Sense and Sensibility and was very pleased with it. Dan was a much more impressive Edward Ferrars than Hugh Grant and a lot easier on the eye! Fantastic voice too! Good Luck with everything you do.

New Fan

Personally I also found Dan Stevens's portrayal of Edward Ferrars in Sense and Sensibility far more impressive than that of Hugh Grant.... and yes, he is far easier on the eye as well.

When I first noticed Dan

Was in the TV film where David Suchet played Robert Maxwell. Oh good, I thought. Someone with a voice you can drown in.

first meeting with Dan (Pat Giles)

Hello - have put my name as there are some who have not - you should really.
I first MET Dan after the first night of the play "The Vortex" by Noel Coward which played at the Theatre Royal in Bath before transferring to the West End. But had seen him on stage in a production of Hay Fever in London opposite Judi Dench Peter Bowles, Belinds Lang. Think it was his first West End play. I remember him saying that lot of his friends were unable to see the play because the seats were so expensive, but it was on at the fabulous Theatre Royal Haymarket in London

But first meeting was in Bath about two years ago, I think, opposite Felicity Kendal, and directed by Peter Hall. Saw the play many many times and he was, of course, brilliant at Nicky (the part that Coward wrote for himself)
Have met up with him several times since then at various productions. Claudio, Every Good Boy, etc.,
but to be taken out to tea after a matinee was delightful and much appreciated. So that's that. I think that's enough to be going on with !!

The first time I saw Dan Stevens was in Sense and Sensibility, and I was very lucky because in Italy it has never been released!It should of course and in every occasion I tried to make my friends watch that series. So for two years I've hoped I could see Dan again on television and finally when I've read the name in the cast of Downton Abbey I was so exited! This series has finally arrived in Italy this year but,however,I prefer watch it in original language so I can really appreciate Dan acting.Anyway I hope in the future to see him on stage,maybe just here in Italy (dream?) Good luck for anything!
