Who was your favorite Downton Abbey downstairs cast member?

Sybil and Mathew and Jack Ross - only black person that existed on the show and no other black actor before or after 1914-1927 series of the show.

Purely downstairs, it had to Mrs Patmore. However, Tom (Branson) is my favourite when it comes to bridging the divide. Upstairs, no one can beat Maggie as Lady Violet.

I liked most of the characters. Mr. Bates is quite handsome. Too bad Dr. Clarkson played by David Robb didn’t have much screen time. He is an excellent actor and very easy on the eyes. In his younger days in other roles, he was quite smashing.

"Aren't as popular as the Crawley family." I think many Downtown watchers would say they were much more popular, aside from Violet, who thanks to Dame Maggie, was the queen of Edwardian shade.

My favorite characters: Mrs. Patmore, Lady Edith & Miss O’Brien! Lol Mrs. Patmore because she’s hilarious and tough, but tender-hearted. Lady Edith because she’s survived being in evil Lady Mary’s shadow, had her life I just total turmoil, and ended up being the only independent female upstairs. Now, why Miss O’Brien? Because although she played the villain, she was incredibly challenging. The audience never knew if she was going to be bad or good! She always kept us guessing what she was up to! All in all, one of my favorite series of all time! Cheers

Thomas was honestly my favourite character, partially because of his growth, but also because I felt I could always see how his character thought, or why he did what he did.

Um. Yah. These characters are equally as popular as the 'Upstairs' folk. Did you guys even talk to anyone who watched the series?
Sheila Burns

Carson was a bit of a bully to his staff, he was a prig, very narrow minded and uptight, unbending, and had a way too high opinion of the upstairs family. I think he would have been quite unlikeable if it had not been for Mrs. Hughes who softened his rough edges.
Sheila Burns

The young man who played Thomas is actually quite handsome. While playing Thomas he usually had such a pinched, mean look about him, it took away from his beauty.

Thomas Barrow is not my favorite character but most respected actor. It's easy to play the role of someone likeable but truly hard to play a character where the audience would despised you. That being said, I hope he gets more TV/movie offers in the future.
tanhayk 11 months ago
And I appreciate him being honest about the consequences of playing a character like that and the risk of being typecast. You can tell he wants to always give it his best, so he won't take jobs just to stay on screen, he wants the roles to be constructive for his talent and career. I'm sorry he's not on social media, because I would have gladly followed him, but I understand that choice too.

Alana King

Lauren Mckinnon, yes while they are acclaimed and outstanding actors, I do think to put Jim and Imelda in opposing roles (upstairs v downstairs) in the film was a wise decision. The various scenes aren't filmed in the same locations and let's face it, there's often the debate about how good it is to work alongside your spouse.

When Sybil died, it made a huge impression of losing someone Thomas cared about because Sybil had been kind to him & not many in this world had shown kindness to him. It justified to a degree how alone Thomas felt in the world. The reason Thomas broke down into tears and allowed Anna to comfort him.......

Maggie Smith is one of my favorite actresses, and this was a peach of a role for her. I’m sorry you didn’t mention Tom Branson played by Allen Leech(?). Sorry if I have the name or the spelling wrong. It’s been awhile. He seemed the most sensible character in the house, even with his radical (for the time) politics.

I thought while viewing (for 15th time) that a committee wrote the dialogue ! The way the characters changed “character”overnight was mind numbing. Come on, folks it’s a freaking soap opera, British to be sure but still a soap. Just enjoy. I look on the whole bunch as family ! I love Rose’s character, she is soooo innocent .

It is difficult to choose a favorite among such a wonderful and talented cast of totally believable characters. The wonderful writing of the script and direction gave value to everyone. If I had to choose one, it would be Daisy, the most diminutive role superbly played.

For myself, Downton Abbey represents that special show like Upstairs, Downstairs from the 1970s. It has heart, wit, class, taste, and style. The characters are so delightfully complex and yet so relatable to people of numerous classes. Its progressive views are still very suitable for the conservatives, but manage to strike a chord with more modern individuals.

I love, love Downton Abby, watched just about every episode, guess you could call it my, "guilty pleasure" Now I'll have to turn in my "black card" 😀

Richard Van Riper
Lady Edith had a heart of gold! First she's stood up at the altar. Second, she was impregnated out-of-wedlock by a man who aspired to be her husband, but who left for Germany, and then died there under mysterious circumstances. And then finally, in Season 6, Edith met the man of her dreams--Bertie Pelham--who truly swept her off her feet. It turned out that Bertie had a heart of gold too--he, without reservation, unconditionally accepted Edith and her illicit child, Marigold, into his life. Has any woman ever had worse luck than Edith?
Sheila Burns
Sheila Burns 10 months ago
@Theresa Lawson No, she was not sweet to Mary, but Mary certainly was not sweet to her. However, when she wrote to the Turkish Consulate and exposed Mary's liaison with the dead Turk, she could have brought scandal to the entire family, not just to Mary. Besides, with family, even if a sibling is not nice, pettiness should stay within the family.
TheLincolnBlogs 11 months ago
I'd say not even close to any woman ever. And on the show, I'd say Mrs. Drew was the unluckiest -> her husband lied to her about the circumstances surrounding Marigold; then the child she loved and cared for since nearly its birth was stripped away from her because of Edith's breaching of the agreement. Then the Drews had to leave their home.
RenShiWu 11 months ago
Bad things happened to Edith, sure. However, another way of looking at it is 1) She was stood up at the altar only because her fiance loved her too much to let her go through a life of being his caretaker (he was older and wounded from the war). 2) Her second romantic interest gave her a job, an inheritance, and a child, and he only went to Germany in order to gain German citizenship whereby he could achieve the legal means to divorce his clinically insane wife. 3) Edith married a lovely man, who accepted her scandalous past, as you mentioned, and she thus became the wife of a northern grandee who outranks the Crawley family. Meanwhile, Sybil married the chauffeur who was a Fenian; they had to escape back from Ireland; and she died in childbirth. Furthermore, Mary had an illicit liaison with a foreigner who died; she was rejected by Matthew; then she had a nouveau riche fiance, who was an @sshole, and who threatened to reveal her secret affair; then her husband died; then she had another liaison which threatened to go public; and she married a car salesman. Edith has had a much better life than either of her two sisters.
Score Animation
@Theresa Lawson You have to keep in mind that they were teenagers when Downton started. Off course, they seem much older because of the actual age of the actresses (20ish), but they were just kids playing grown ups (like what happened in those days, sadly). For me, Lady Mary is the most inmature of them all, specially after Mathew's death.
