Downton Abbey is a period drama set in the United Kingdom.
‘It looks like a Disney castle, and you can’t believe it’s real.’ ‘It’s such an incredible outline against the horizon, and… it was the first kind of intake of air.’
Unfortunately, it seems that Matthew Goode’s role Henry Talbot will not return, given he did not feature much in the first film.
