Lily James reveals Downton Abbey return

Downton Abbey star Lily James says she will ‘definitely’ be making an appearance in the new series.

The 25-year-old actress swapped Downton for Hollywood to star as Cinderella in Disney’s new live-action movie version of the classic fairytale. At the end of the last series viewers saw her character Lady Rose marry aristocrat Atticus Aldridge and go to live in America.

But Lily told zap2it: “I’m really hoping to come back. I feel like it’s definitely going to happen.”

She added that a return for Lady Rose does ‘depend on what [creator Julian Fellowes] writes and all sorts of things.’

Executive producer Gareth Neame recently confirmed that ‘a visit home may well happen at some time’ for Lady Rose.

Lily previously told “I’m obsessed with Downton and I love playing Lady Rose so if there’s another series next year I hope to be in it.”
