Thank you for leaving kind messages and feedback.
I FUCKING LOVE YOU
Happy Birthday Dan!!
It was quite entertaining to watch your portrayal of Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey, looking forward to your future films!
I would like to Thank You for your portrayal of Matthew Crawley. From the moment of the look on your face when Lady Mary "pushed in", to the very touchingly beautiful scene w Mary, when you met your "little chap", you have been brilliant! It has been a pure delight to have had you cast in this role. Best Wishes to you always.
hello dan stevens please come back to downton abbey they shouldnt have replaced you with new characters i dont want to know what happens you said in weekend magazine you were coming back to downton abbey in the future you said to michelle dockery and the other members of the cast dont spoil it for me i will watch downton abbey i am a dan stevens fan i have got pictures on my bedroom wall and in my scrapbook you look very handsome are you enjoying yourself in newyork with your family from amy howard a fan
I am a new convert to Downton Abbey, having all the annoying zeal of a neophyte. I must admit to being quite cross at Mr. Stevens' decision to leave Downton. He makes his character, Matthew, one of the most beloved figures in popular drama. He makes his fans in the USA (of which I am one) fall passionately in love with him. And he leaves. Decency forbids me from repeating my first thoughts on Matthew's death.
Nicely executed acting job...beginning, middle, and end. But I'm struggling not to hate Mr. Stevens for it. Oh, I'll forgive him, and follow his work avidly in other projects. But dammit!
Bravo, Dan! Bravo!!! You’re great! Once I was impressed by the novel “The Great Gatsby” written by Scott Fitzgerald. When I had read it, I was emotionally turned upside down. Some years have passed since then. Now it’s your turn. I’m deeply impressed by you as an actor, by the way you act, talk and express your feelings and emotions whatever the movies or series you’re filming in. It’s brilliant! I’ve been paralysed for several years. However, Matthew Crawley’s miraculous recovery from a spinal-cord injury makes me believe (thanks to your superb performance of the role of Matthew) that something good might happen to me in the future as well. Who knows? It seems that I’m the only fan of Dan Stevens in my country of Belarus. Nevertheless, I believe that sooner or later (sooner is better of course) my countrymen will learn about you and highly appreciate your talent. Well, all the best to you! I look forward to seeing “Summer in February”.
I wish you all the best in the upcoming projects! I hope they will be shown in Finland, too. I feel very sorry when I'm reading the comments from fans about you leaving Downton. I did not like it either how the season 3 ended, but I truly understand your decision. Looking forward to seeing you in new projects!
I want to say that I agree with some of the other people on here who support you in leaving Downton. As hard as it is to see you go (and still a part of me wishes you would come back because we LOVE Matthew Crawley) you had to do what you needed to, to expand your talents as an actor and for your family. I think you look good skinny and/or fuller figured (the Matthew and Gilbert look). Don't let anyone with negative comments upset you. You have a lot of fans who support you and like you for who you are. We love you very much and can't wait to see you in your new movies. Hopefully they'll come to the US soon. :)
Dan, PLEASE come back to Downton!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!Have Mary "wake up" from a nightmare or something!!! three seasons just isn't long enough for you to be in the story!
It's a shame "Summer in February" isn't playing all over the country , especially after the exposure it got on TV and the press. There's hardly a venue at all in the NW around Manchester. I specially want to see it as my aunt and uncle were in service to the Carter-Woods as maid and chauffeur at their residence in Silloth during the 1930's. My uncle often talked of his days with the C-W's and would be enthralled that their children were the subject of a major film.
Hello dan stevens how are you did you enjoy Father's Day yesterday with your wife children and family I would like to meet you when you are not busy doing films I like your image your hair you look slimmer then you did in downton abbey I support you and wish you the best with America from Amy Howard a dan stevens fan
Dan, I'm going to love you in anything you do! First saw you on DOWNTON ABBEY (prefer you with more meat on your bones), but I'm going to see everything you do. You are a wonderful actor (and so easy on the eyes)!!!!!
A little side note to all those who are acting as if Dan Stevens just kicked your puppy:
For the love of God, leave the dramatics to the professionals.
This concludes our message of clarity. You may now resume your teeth-gnashing and hand-wringing.
You were wonderful on Downton Abbey, and I'm sure you'll bring your magic along with you wherever you go (films, television, Broadway, etc.)
Also, I don't know if this will mean anything to you, personally, but I thought I'd share, nonetheless. You remind me of a young James Stewart. It's the facial expressions, and you share something almost undefinable with him. Maybe it's the sideways glances, or the almost uneasy/awkward charm. Regardless, it's a compliment.
Thank you for bringing smiles, laughter and a little heart-throbbing on the side, while you were on Downton. Break a leg with your current pursuits!
I am young and my one wish is for you to return to downton. Please, please, please, please
I was in a state of shock over the ending of season 3. I became a fan while tuning into the end of season2. This is the best drama on American TV. It finally paid off to have Infinity cable and I have been able to watch all 3 series. I am a total admirer and am so sad that it ended this way. Can't you recover from a head wound like you did the spinal wound? Think of that poor baby grasping Mary's finger. Please find a way to return. You have done a superb job and best of everything to you no matter what. I look forward to seeing you in whatever you choose to select just don't fall for the movie star stuff like Colin Farrell from Ballykisangel.
I heard such wonderful things about Downton Abbey, so I was thrilled to get involved in the series a few weeks ago. I just finished Season 3, and I am devastated! Then to read it is because Mr. Stevens won't return, even part time, to the series breaks my heart. It seems that as an actor, one would understand how connected the audience gets to a character, especially one involved in a main love plot. It is hard for me to comprehend why an actor leaves a highly popular show. They should be proud of it and give back to the show that brought them so much fame. I hate to say it, but it does ruin the show for me and any anticipation of another season.
Seriously what would possess you to leave what will go down as one of the best shows of all time? Jon Hamm didn't run out on and destroy Mad Men, because why should he sneer at such a once in a lifetime opportunity? Do you really think your DA fans will follow you after you ruined one of the best shows running today in order to try to cash in and try your luck in Hollywood? Undoubtedly you are surrounded by people who make a percentage based on how much you take in and they will pimp you for what it's worth and be on to the next guy in six months. The US will chew you up and spit you out. DA was the one thing you had going for you and you ruined it. In a few years you'll be lucky to get car commercials.
I'm a massive Downton fan and I wanted to say that you did a great job playing Matthew on the show. From what I've read online I think I can safely say I'm one of the few who won't hold it against you for leaving. I highly respect your decision, and however hard it is to see Matthew go I still like the show very much. I hope you have great success in the future, and hopefully we'll be seeing you on screen soon enough!!!
