My favorite character on Downton. Initially didn’t care for her. But then as time progressed, realized she was my favorite type of character…..seemingly gruff, cynical and controlling on the outside, yet internally, actively trying to help others. Maggie Smith is brilliant in her portrayal.
Regardless of where your general interests lay, “Downton Abbey” is one of the best dramas ever produced. On all levels…..writing, directing, acting, cinematography, music….pure brilliance.
