Downton Abbey Cast

One of my friends posted a photo of Thomas (a.k.a. Robert James Collier) on Facebook. His character in Downton has been so nasty that I’ve never viewed him as remotely good looking. But check him out when he’s happy! In honor of their happier and/or interesting alter egos I put together a little slideshow of the Downton Abbey cast in their “other” lives.

In honor of the season 4 premier here in the U.S. I’ve also found a sneak peek at some of the new characters! You can see them all here.


Picture 1 of 20

Thomas: Played by Rob James Collier. * Photo: PBS. Look at how happy and sweet he looks!

    I liked your ‘Dan Stevens Cougar Mellencamp’! Or, he could be ‘Dan Stevens Springfield’. (Rick). ;D

    Love the slideshow! Thanks for putting it together. Do you recall Hugh Bonneville from the movie ‘Nottinghill’? He played one of Hugh Grant’s friends, Bernie, one of my favorites.

    Maggie Smith is in The Millionairess, a movie based on the George Bernard Shaw play. Funny enough, she’s played another character named Violet in Suddenly, Last Summer.

    Mrs. Hughes and O’brien: #WhatThe Those two look so starkly different.

      I know dude! Amazing! It’s those hairstyles they throw on people in the show. I’m tempted to try one out to see what happens!
