Is there a chance that Anna and Mr. Bates will have a child on Downton Abbey?
Based on Wednesday's report from Yahoo!, it could end up happening. After all, that seems to be Anna's main desire at this point.
"At the beginning of season six Anna is not in a very good place, once again!" Joanne Froggatt (Anna) said. "We start off and she's just had a miscarriage and that's her third, or possibly fourth, so she doesn't think she's able to have children. She's hugely upset about that- she feels that she's not doing her duty as a woman. She just feels that the one thing she's supposed to be able to do is give Mr. Bates a baby."
Considering that Anna and Bates have been through too much, involving jail and the after-math of an assault, Froggatt is hoping these two will finally achieve some luck in the future. If it were up to her, they would get the kids they've wanted.
"If I were to picture them 10 years after the show ends I'd hope they'd have a few children," the actress said. "Maybe by then, Bates and Anna have got their little guesthouse somewhere that they've always wanted. They could call it The Bates Hotel."
Downton Abbey Season 6 premieres in the United States on Sunday, January 3 at 9 p.m. ET on PBS.
