Twilight star MyAnna Buring lands a role in Downton Abbey’s Christmas special!
The Times reports that MyAnna will star in Downton’s Christmas special alongside former Bad Girls and Wire In The Blood actress Simone Lahbib. The pair will play “feisty” new servants.
“Many of my previous roles have had a contemporary feel to them so I was thrilled when the offer came from Downton.”
Buring will play “forward-thinking servant” Edna, while Lahbib takes on the role of lady’s maid, Wilkins…
And of course, they’re joining the show at the height of its success given that last week, Downton was nominated for 16 Emmys, making it the most Emmy-nominated show in British history.
Around 17.1million viewers tuned in to the second series of the drama in the US, and here in the UK, the show regularly landed record numbers of viewers.
