‘Downton Abbey’ season 4: Some fun with Allen Leech (and a dog)

Allen LeechWhile Allen Leech was not one of the “Downton Abbey” stars nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award on Thursday, the actor has still had a little bit of fun this week courtesy of sharing what has to be one of the more-entertaining photos that we have seen from the show’s season 4 set.

While the source of this article is from Leech’s official Twitter account, we have to say that the focus here really is not so much on him. Instead, we are talking about none other than the Grantham family dog. Here’s what he had to say, and you can also see the photo that goes along with it:

Isis“Isis is such a diva! INSISTS on wearing a hat in EVERY scene! And as for adding her own lines… DON’T get me started”

There is something first of all about this image that we personally find to be perfect for a meme, and strangely, Isis’ expression almost feels rather British like she could be a direct descendant of Robert himself. We’re mostly just thrilled to see that there is even a great relationship on set between the actors and the animals, and that cannot always be an easy thing multiple scenes in, where there may just be a certain philosophy and desire at that point to just try to get the work done rather than having to stress about getting a dog to do what they are asked.

Ultimately, we hope for some nice things from Isis, just as we also hope for some nice things from all of the “Downton Abbey” gang moving forward. The new series premieres on ITV this fall, and will be on PBS in January.
