'Downton Abbey' Cast Reflects on Show & Its Traveling Exhibition

November 27, 2017

It's been nearly two years since Downton Abbey — the award-winning show produced by NBCUniversal International Studios' Carnival Films — bid viewers farewell after six stand-out seasons. But since then, the show has come to life with a traveling exhibition that has delighted die-hard fans across the globe with access to costumes, sets, unseen footage and more.

With the exhibit currently on display in New York City, we couldn't help but invite a few of our favorite Downton Abbey cast members to 30 Rock for an exclusive 'Rapid Fire' interview.

Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore), Allen Leech (Tom Branson), Joanne Froggatt (Anna Bates) and Sophie McShera (Daisy) talk about their first day on set, what they miss most about the show, their favorite part of the exhibition and more.


Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, based on the beloved television show, transports you to post-Edwardian England, where the characters and the iconic house come to life. You’ll be immersed in the fascinating social history, culture, and some of the most memorable moments from the show’s six-season run. For more information, visit
