On the next Downton Abbey
The sun is rising behind Downton Abbey, a great and splendid house in a great and splendid park. So secure does it appear, that it seems as if the way of life it represents will last for another thousand years. It won't.

Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay is hoping to swap period dramas for superhero movies with a role in the next Captain America film.
The British actress, who plays Lady Sybil in the hit U.K. drama series, is said to be in the running to star opposite Chris Evans in upcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo are said to have put together a shortlist of five actresses for the lead female role in the film, taking over from British star Hayley Atwell who appeared as the superhero’s love interest in 2011′s Captain America: The First Avenger.
Findlay is on the list along with Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, Australian actress Teresa Palmer, 28 Weeks Later‘s Imogen Poots and Mad Men star Alison Brie, according to Deadline.com.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due to hit cinemas in 2014.
Jessica Brown Findlay’s artist boyfriend has just made £88,000 from selling a collection of portraits of the actress, including nudes.
Thomas Campbell, who has been with Jessica for two years, sold the 27 paintings online.
‘Thomas sold a portrait called For JBF for £7,500 along with a number of others,’ says an art world insider.
‘He has also been inundated with offers from galleries as well as requests to complete a new collection.
‘They’re calling it the “Downton effect”.’
What did you think of yesterday’s Downton Abbey? Sybil was only in a few scenes, but, judging from the preview, I think we will get a Sybil and Tom-centric episode next Sunday! The gallery has been updated with HQ episode stills, courtesy of Downton Online. As well, there are screen captures from episode 3 and screen captures from the Glamour UK behind-the-scenes video! Check it out below.
Thanks to Downton Online for several new HQ stills and BTS pictures from episode 3.1.
What did you think of the series premiere last night? I really enjoyed it and hope you did too! Screen captures of our lovely Sybil are in the gallery, as well as a new episode still from the wonderful Downton Online.

What’s next on Downton Abbey (in the UK)?
Episode 3×01 – Sunday, 16 September 2012, 9:00PM, ITV
Cora’s mother sweeps into Downton for Matthew and Mary’s wedding, but with the couple’s relationship under strain will they even make it to the altar? New footman Alfred strives to meet Carson’s high standards, under the watchful eye of his aunt O’Brien. Robert’s shocking news brings financial worries to the fore, on an unprecedented scale. Might he lose Downton itself and all it stands for?
Two new Downton Abbey trailers are now online, including one for ITV and another for PBS. I am unable to watch the PBS trailer as I don’t live in the US, but I caught a few glimpses of Jessica’s Sybil in the ITV trailer! The show returns to ITV September 16 and PBS January 6, 2013.
Thank you to Downton Online for three new HQ episode stills from the first episode of Downton Abbey season 3. I am so excited!

When Jessica Brown Findlay plays Lady Sybil in Downton Abbey, she ensures the cameras capture her best side.
But the actress is not motivated by vanity. Brown Findlay has disclosed that her close-up scenes are shot almost exclusively from her right side in order to hide a decidedly non-period detail from viewers: multiple ear piercings.
“I’ve got four piercings in my left, so we’ve dubbed my right one the ‘period drama ear’,” the 22-year-old explained.
