“I enjoyed it a lot,” the actor said about joining the franchise. “I didn’t know what to expect because you never know how it’s gonna be like jumping in and joining something that’s so established, but they were delightful.”
It wouldn’t be a Downton Abbey movie without amazing costumes, which Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Talbot) said were much more comfortable this time around thanks to the lack of corsets. But according to Laura Carmichael, another clothing item was just as painful to wear.
“Now it’s probably the shoes,” she told E! News. “There’s nothing practical, really, about the clothes that these ladies wear.”
The actress really enjoyed her character Edith Pelham’s looks in the film, especially the one she wore during scenes set in the South of France.
“I had some kimono dresses and wide pants. I love the bathing suits. I thought they pulled them off and looked great. With vintage pieces, the costume department had to work very hard to keep everything fresh.”
