With fans of the hit British-American drama Downton Abbey still coming to grips with the heart-wrenching ending of Season three on Feb. 17, they've apparently decided to use whatever means necessary in order to keep themselves entertained until the start of the fourth season.
British comedian Richard Sandling and his team altered the cast of the popular series' dialogue in a YouTube video to give the impression that they're belting out the lyrics to One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful.
According to Los Angeles Times, Sandling gave the following message in regards to his group's very clever mashup:
"This wasn't just a cynical exercise, this project was meant with love & respect for both and I am very happy with the result. I think we have created a video that people who like Downton Abbey & One Direction will enjoy watching and I also hope that anyone who doesn't like Downton Abbey or One Direction will enjoy this for what it is - another awesome mash up from Team Sandling!"
In other Downton news, actors Allen Leech (Tom Branson) and Laura Carmichael (Edith Crawley) recently dished on some of the show's Season four details to Red Carpet News.
Leech confirmed that Downton Abbey Season four would be going into production in three short weeks. He also acknowledged that Mary's character would be the focal point for many of the storylines, as she looks to move forward from the death of her husband Matthew Crawley, who was played by the now departed Dan Stevens.
Leech added that there's some exciting scenarios that will come up during the middle of the season, especially for Branson. Branson is said to continue wearing his heart on his sleeve in his quest to woo Sybil. The respective declaration will supposedly leave "a significant impression on him for months to come."
Carmichael gave her word to the website that the part of Edith had some exciting things coming up, as she was faced with an interesting conflict at the end of Season three as to whether she should trust her heart, or the wishes of her family.
Taking place in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey, the popular series chronicles the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family after the Edwardian era and centers on historic events during that respective time period.
Downton Abbey is set to return at some point in the fall of 2013. Information on the upcoming season will be posted as it's revealed.
