On returning to Downton accent: “I’d been so used to playing Americans [accents] that when we filmed Downton Abbey [the upcoming movie, out on September 20], I think [my character] Lady Mary started off being a little too posh.”

On returning to Downton: “Three years, but it felt like no time had passed at all. [I realized] I’d taken some things for granted. Like driving up to that house [the setting for Downton Abbey], it honestly took my breath away. But I think the three-year gap was perfect, because we’d all been off doing our own thing, and it was enough time to really, really miss it.”

On the “Mary Effect”: “If it’s Downton they recognize me from, they come across as, like, slightly afraid. Which is the Mary effect, isn’t it? I disarm them by going, ‘Oh, hi there, love!’”

On Downton doing more than one movie: “I mean, we’ll see. As Elizabeth McGovern, who plays my mother, just said, “All doors are left open.”

On working with Chris Evans: “Chris is one of my favorite people. The content of the show is very intense. We are playing the parents of a boy who has been accused of this awful murder of a boy his age in his school. But Chris is a laugh, and we share the same sense of humor, so it’s so brilliant to work with him.”


The InStyle September issue is on sale August 16th.
