Downton Abbey


It's time for Downton Abbey to come to America.

And we're not just talking about having to wait until January for season three to premiere stateside.

How about the Crawleys make a visit to the U.S.?!

As fans of the PBS series already know Lady Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) is American and her mom lives in Philadelphia.

"I think we need to encourage [show creator Julian Fellows] to write an episode in New York or something like that," Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary, told us at the Emmys. "Let's hope, because I'd love that,"

Cora's mother actually appears in season three when she comes to visit the family. She's played Shirley MacLaine.

She goes head-to-head with Dowager Countess (Emmy winner Maggie Smith).

"Shirley MacLaine was fantastic," Hugh Bonneville, who plays family patriarch Robert Crawley, told us at the BAFTA L.A. Tea. "She was a hoot and she just brought class and Hollywood glamour to the whole proceedings."

Dockery is hoping for more MacLaine.

"We really missed her actually when she finished her episodes," she said. "I really hope she comes back."
