Avengers, Star Wars—step aside! My "movie event of the year" was "Downton Abbey" the movie! I've been a huge fan of the series since it was on TV and, similarly to "Game Of Thrones," always thought that it always seemed like a movie. The production of this show was spectacular, so when they decided to bring it to the big screen, I just had to attend the premiere!
It's a good thing I did too because I met what is perhaps the classiest cast ever. The actors, all of them, seemed so much like their characters, it was bonkers. When I saw Hugh Bonneville, I couldn't help but bow. More so when I had the honor of seeing Maggie Smith right in front of me. The screen legend rarely goes to red carpet events anymore, so having seen here almost up close and personal was something else. And say what you want about her, she's still up and kicking like no one else. I do hope she'll get more projects even as Downton has finally ended.
Michelle Dockery, in my opinion, looked the most sophisticated. That night, she was Lady Mary Grantham in person. she exuded the duchess, baroness, or whatever title she had in the story. You really felt the class with just how she presented herself amidst a horde of screaming photographers. In fact, I was so blown away by her that when I asked her to sign my posters, I accidentally called her "Lady Mary" instead of her real name. The same goes for Laura Carmichael too. To me, she'll forever be Lady Edith! I hope she'll get more projects after Downton as well. It always seemed to me that Dockery and Lily James got most of the attention. by Carmichael deserve some too!
For me, “Downton Abbey” will always be the best thing I watched on TV. And now, I can proudly say that the movie was one of the best films I’ve seen on the big screen as well! Bravo!
