Ryan Gosling’s latest role sees him take on a gritty guise as a gangster ruling the Bangkok underworld in Only God Forgives but he could be making an acting about turn if Downton Abbey star, Laura Carmichael has her way…

The last series of Downton Abbey saw Lady Edith jilted at the altar by Sir Anthony Strallan before she then caught the eye of her newspaper editor who sadly turned out to be married.

What do you think? Would Ryan Gosling make a good addition to the Downton Abbey cast? Let us know below.
