Downton Abbey Ladies Lead The Way At Series Showcase In LA

Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt and Elizabeth McGovern looked stunning on the red carpet as in Hollywood - come and see all the pics!

Downton Abbey’s girls Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt and Elizabeth McGovern were barely recognisable on the red carpet in LA last night.

The ladies joined the rest of the hit show’s cast to attend a series showcase in Hollywood, looking every inch the gorgeous A-listers.

Series writer Julian Fellowes was also in attendance at the ‘Evening With Downton Abbey‘ at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood, with Phyllis Logan, Rob James-Collier and producer Gareth Neame.

Downton Abbey has proved to be a huge hit in the States and series three has only just come to a dramatic conclusion across the pond. Series five kicks off in the UK this autumn, but won’t air in the US until January next year.

Viewers were left devastated when the series came to a close, leaving Matthew Crawley unconscious in the road as a result of a horrific car accident and Lady Mary was left – quite literally – holding the baby.

Talking to the US press at last night’s event, Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary, said: ‘What’s wonderful to play is the whole British, stiff upper-lip thing. You keep calm and carry on. She’s a survivor, she will come through it.’

Phew. Michelle looked stunning in a purple shift dress at the red-carpet party, while Joanne Froggatt, who plays Anna, wore a grey and silver number. Elizabeth McGovern, aka Lady Cora in the series, looked stunning in a simple black dress with a black tuxedo blazer and a bright red lip.

Rob James-Collier who plays Thomas Barrow attempted to steal the spotlight by unveiling a newly-shaven head. We wonder what Carson will have to say about that.

Hurry home, guys… we need you to finish series four!
