Downton Abbey A New Era Star Elizabeth McGovern Shares Key Details About the Film

Dominic West, who plays the elder Prince Charles in next season’s “The Crown,” will play a 1920s Hollywood actor who arrives to the estate to shoot a movie in the much-anticipated “Downtown Abbey A New Era” film, which is set to be released on March 18. Laura Haddock (White Lines, Guardians of the Galaxy) will play a fellow silent film star, while Hugh Dancy (Clare “Homeland” Danes’ husband) will play the fake picture’s director.

‘Hello!’ shares these titbits, basing its report on an interview given to ‘Daily Mail Weekend’ by Elizabeth McGovern, the American actress who plays the “Countess of Grantham” in “Downton Abbey” (both the series and the film).

“You see this clash of cultures when Hollywood meets Downton,” the 60-year-old actress said. McGovern has been portraying the “Countess of Grantham” since the superhit series first aired in 2010.

“(Downton Abbey: A New Era) is set in 1928, nine months after the first one, when ‘talkies’, as opposed to silent films, were just starting to be made and they’ve got all these Hollywood movie stars and the director of a talking movie staying at the Abbey,” McGovern added.
