Going Back to Downton Abbey: A Chat with Lady Edith & Gareth Neame

Posted By: Sheila Tepper · 1/6/2014 1:09:00 PM

The fourth season of Downton Abbey is just unfolding on American television screens and once again, we're hooked! What will happen to the Crawley family now? 

The show has captivated audiences on either side of the pond. Arts Alive caught up with actress Laura Carmichael, who plays Lady Edith, and the series' executive producer, Gareth Neame, during LA BritWeek. Here's Neame on how he convinced writer Julian Fellowes to bring the Crawley family to tv.

We asked Laura Carmichael what it's like to play the series' enterprising middle sister.

Downton Abbey airs Sundays on PBS' Masterpiece.
