Anna Kendrick is desperate for a role on 'Downton Abbey'.

The 27-year-old actress is a huge fan of many British TV shows but thinks her dream of appearing in the period drama is ''inappropriate'' as it isn't likely to come true.

She said: ''I just watched 'Game of Thrones' and the first two seasons of 'Downton Abbey'. I have the most inappropriate fantasies about being on those shows - there's not a part for a tiny American girl in either, but I can dream.''

Anna is also a huge fan of UK talent show 'The X Factor', and was thrilled when girl group Little Mix won last year.

She added: ''I have to catch up on 'Sherlock and 'X Factor'. I loved that group who won last year, Little Mix. During their first performance I wanted to scream at the TV, 'Do you guys know that these are really good, really solid vocals.' ''

And TV isn't the only thing Anna loves about the UK - she has ''cravings'' for English tea.

She told Britain's ELLE magazine: ''Every time I go to England the first thing I do is have tea. I crave it to the point where I panic, 'What am I going to do when I get home? I don't have a kettle.' But then the craving disappears - it's like something's pumped into the air.''
