on May 13, 2013 05:03 PM EDT
While there isn't a whole lot of chatter coming out of the Downton Abbey camp as of late, actor Hugh Bonneville (Robert Crawley) did speak about his aspirations for returning to his old stomping grounds, the theatre.
Bonneville, 49, was spotted recently at the Olivier Awards, and confessed his love for his first true passion, which is on the performance stage, according to Express.
"I spent a lot of my career in the theatre, and I miss it. I'm really keen to do some more, and I've been talking to lots of producers about different possibilities. All those old clichés about missing the live sensation are true. My happiest time on stage was with the RSC."
Interesting to note, Bonneville actually started out participating in productions on stage, which included The School For Scandal and Tis Pity She's A Whore.
Downton Abbey, which airs in 219 countries across the world, follows the ups and downs of the royal Crawley family and their staff in the 1920s.
The series is set to premiere its fourth season in the U.S. on Jan. 5, 2014, according to The Huffington Post.
