Downton Abbey, Maggie Smith


Fret not, lovelies: The Dowager Countess of Grantham is fine.

Downton Abbey's Maggie Smith was taken to the hospital Friday after reportedly suffering chest pains. Reports quickly surfaced that the 77-year-old actress's condition was severe. Fortunately, however, a rep for Smith told the Daily Mail that after a routine medical procedure she is "fine and well at home."

Smith has yet to sign on for the fourth season of Downton Abbey, which led some fans to wonder if her reported health scare over the weekend would prevent her from doing so.

This has not been Smith's only health scare in recent years. In 2008, she battled breast cancer.

We're glad she's doing OK now and really hope to see her for many more seasons of Downton Abbey!
