Jessica Brown-findlay

Biography

Since nursery school, Jessica Brown-Findlay aspired to be a famous ballerina. After training for years, she was asked at age 15 to dance with the Kirov Ballet at the Royal Opera House in London for a summer season. Her dreams were shattered when a botched ankle operation ended her dancing career. Changing tracks, she got into a few acting classes and was spotted almost immediately by a casting agent.

The Downton Abbey character Lady Sybil Crawley is Jessica Brown-Findlay's second foray into television. Lady Sybil, Brown-Findlay explains is very forward thinking. "She's at that age where she's learning who she is and consequently she's discovering this at a time when women were becoming more vocal and less subservient."
