Dame Maggie Smith to leave Downton Abbey?
Reports suggest that Dame Maggie Smith is set to leave Downton Abbey.
She plays one of the most popular characters to inhabit Downton Abbey, but Dame Maggie Smith has reportedly said that the third series of the ITV drama will be her last.
The Daily Mail reported that a source told them that the actress has asked to be written out of the show, in hope of chasing other acting roles.
The source told the Daily Mail: "She is keen to pursue other roles so Julian is preparing to write her out. He [Fellowes] always has several endings so it won't be too difficult for him, but losing Maggie will be a great loss."
We don't know about you, but we'll know that we'll miss Dame Maggie's character, the witty Dowager Countess, if she left the show - we can't get enough of her catty one-liners!
Reports of Dame Maggie leaving the show follow an earlier announcement by executive producer Rebecca Eaton, who confirmed that character who is "pretty key in the cast" is set to die...
Finger's crossed that it isn't the Dowager Countess!
