Can you believe that the season 3 premiere of “Downton Abbey” is just a few days away? Well, at least it is for our friends living over the United Kingdom, and that is when details about the actual plot of this show are really going to start to leak in a pretty major way.
So what does one of the series’ most-popular actors have to say about the story that is coming up? Speaking in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Dan Stevens, whose character of Matthew has one of the most interesting and likable storylines of the entire series with Mary, gave some pretty substantial hints as to what is going to be coming up. However, he was not so kind as to reveal whether or not any of these had to do with him, or with some other members of the show’s massive ensemble:
“There’s a wedding … There might be a baby … There’s all sorts [of things] going on. I think you’re going to laugh and cry several times. Possibly simultaneously!”
While trying to guess the answers to these hints right now would pretty much be pure speculation, there is one thing that we can guarantee right now: there are going to be plenty of reasons to tune in. “Downton Abbey” has become the primetime soap viewers all around the world have been looking forward to for years, and it perfectly combines the sort of character development and relationships viewers love with a sense of history and intelligence. Few other shows transport you to an era so effortlessly, while at the same time giving you performances that are in line with what Stevens, Maggie Smith, and Elizabeth McGovern bring on a consistent basis.
