Downton Abbey's Laura Carmichael, who dons the role of Lady Edith Crawley, recently had the opportunity to dish on the British-American drama's upcoming fourth installment.
The British actress recently sat down with The Telegraph to discuss her character of Edith's evolution on the popular program, which includes her romance with newspaper editor Michael Gregson.
"Her editor, obviously there is a spark and that continues really. It's great because I completely understand how much Edith has come on, and it really has come out of unfortunate things happening to her, and not getting the life she planned," Carmichael explained.
Carmichael also commended Edith's loyalty, and just how she thinks she would fare as a future wife.
"I've always thought she would have been a dutiful wife, and it sparked her to find something else to do, and she does," she added.
The beautiful actress also credited writer Julian Fellowes for his accurate portrayal of the 1920s in the characters he brings to life on the small screen, especially the woman.
"As ever Julian manages to take the characters we know and love into exciting places at exciting times that we also know about, so we know that in the twenties woman were beginning to do these things and we believe we're following it accurately," Carmichael said.
Downton Abbey is set to premiere its fourth season in the U.S. on Jan. 5, 2014, according to The Huffington Post.
