'Downton Abbey' Movie News: Actress Says She'd 'Love' To Do A Film, Any Script Update? [VIDEO]
One of the stars of Downton Abbey gave more insight on a potential movie based on the series.
On Saturday, Herald Scotland released details from Lesley Nicol who played Mrs. Patmore on the British drama. When she was asked if a movie would ever happen, she didn't say yes, but she didn't say no, either.
At this point, she and the other actors are waiting to see what the announcement is-- and if it turns out that a movie does happen, she would be happy to sign on.
"Nobody's signed on because we haven't got a script yet," Nicol said. "There's a lot of interest from all sides. I'd love to do it, but we don't know what we're talking about yet because we haven't seen a script. The idea of a Downton film I think is a great one and I think it would make a lot of the Downton fans very happy."
Her time on the series was definitely something she'll carry with her for a long time.
"I'm very fond of the whole experience," Nicol said. "It was phenomenal. I treasure it."
When she was asked why the show became so successful, the actress said she wasn't really sure how that happened.
"Nobody really knows," she added. "Julian [Fellowes], who wrote it, certainly doesn't. I guess it's good story-telling, I think the cast came together well. I think the whole thing gelled. Why that happens and how that happens, it's hard to say. There was a great group of people who cared very much about it."
As for more details on a Downton Abbey film, fans might have to wait a while before anything becomes official. But if a movie ever does come out, it will likely happen sometime next year.
