One of the stars of Downton Abbey seems pretty on board with a movie spin-off.

'Downton Abbey' Actors Explain How They Feel About Possible Movie

On Tuesday, E! News chatted with Tom Cullen, who played Lord Gillingham on the British drama. When he was asked about the possibility of the series getting a film following the final episode, Cullen said it sounds like a good idea since the show ended "with such a high."

"I think if they really want to do that, they should definitely do it," the actor continued. "I think people would be up for it, people would watch it. And I think it would be a very nice way to finish it off."

Whether a movie happens or not, Cullen noted that the cast and crew might "want a little time before they jump back in."

According to a previous report from Mirror, Mr. Bates (played by Brendan Coyle) is expected to appear in the possible film while the Dowager (Maggie Smith) is not. Apparently, Smith's character will be dead since the story is supposed to continue years later.

"There is a timeline in place- even though everyone is staying quiet about it for now," a source said. "The film should be ready in time for Christmas 2018. The script outlines are broadly in place. All the stars of the show have verbally committed to the film, which will be shot in the UK. It's a bit of a wait because [series creator] Julian Fellowes has to concentrate on his Gilded Age series for NBC in the US first."
