We all knew that “Downton Abbey” is in the process of filming its fourth season, but as it turns out, it looks like the actors are finding some ways to build camaraderie even when some of the cameras are not rolling. For more on that, all we have to do now is listen to some of what actress Michelle Dockery is saying.
Speaking in a new interview with TV Biz, the actress explains that with the arrival of Tom Cullen playing the part of Lord Anthony Gillingham, she has managed to actually take part in a new sort of activity when the cameras aren’t rolling with some of her co-stars:
“Tom has joined as Lord Gillingham and has brought in Bananagrams. It is like Scrabble but there is no board and you have to lose all of the letters in the pile.
“Maggie and Laura Carmichael [Lady Edith Crawley] are really good. They usually win. Their vocabulary is bigger than mine I guess.”
This is turning out to be quite an incredible week for Dockery. Not only is she starting to wrap up filming the fourth season with the Christmas special, but she is also going to be hitting up Los Angeles this coming September as an Emmy nominee for the second straight year. The only difference between this year and in 2012? This time around, she has been nominated in the lead category. Having a great game to play during your time off? That just seems to be icing on the cake.
There has not been a full trailer released yet for “Downton Abbey” season 4, but don’t worry; we will have it for you as soon as it is made available.
