Hugh Bonneville Michelle Dockery Lily James

It's been just over two months since 'Downton Abbey' ended for UK viewers, while the US still has the sixth and final series to complete. So what have all the main cast members been up to and where are we going to see them next? Some are sticking to the UK, but others are broadening their horizons.

Michelle Dockery and Maggie SmithBut what's Maggie Smith up to?

Many of the 'Downton Abbey' stars were already well-established in their own right, but for others the show has been a stepping stone to bigger things. Hugh Bonneville is of the former category, and he's looking pretty busy this year what with the new 'Hollow Crown' series coming up in which he stars as the Duke of Gloucester. He's also finished filming the UK/Indian drama 'Viceroy's House' with Michael Gambon and Gillian Anderson.

Bloody 'Downton Abbey' Scene Leaves Viewers Stunned


Hugh Bonneville

There was absolutely no contest on Monday as to what the previous night’s ‘watercooler moment’ on TV had been, as the shocking end of the most recent episode of ‘Downton Abbey’ took most of us by surprise.

The normally genteel ITV programme, currently in the middle of its sixth and final season, temporarily turned into something resembling a scene from Alien as Lord Grantham’s stomach complaint, a plotline bubbling under the four episodes in the series thus far, erupted – quite literally – as his ulcer burst, causing him to projectile vomit blood over the dinner table and his dining companions.

Looking increasingly pale as the hour-long episode went on, Lord Grantham (played by Hugh Bonneville) stood up in the middle of dinner to interrupt an argument about a local hospital to declare he was feeling unwell, when the bloody scene unfolded.
