There are a lot of very big and exciting television shows around these days and, while most of these shows tend to come from the US, there are also a fair amount of impressive UK television shows around too. One of the biggest and best British television shows around at the moment, would have to be the hit series Downton Abbey.
Over the past few years, Downton Abbey has got bigger and better, with fans of the show coming from all over the world, leading to the series winning a number of awards along the way. Actress Michelle Dockery, who plays the role of Lady Mary Crawley, has spoken about getting used to being approached by fans and how she deals with them.
During a recent interview, Dockery explained, "At first I was nervous of complete strangers coming over and wanting to talk, but I find it quite easy to accept now. You can still pop to the shops for a pint of milk. Or go on the Tube. That's the last place you're recognized."
It is not just your everyday person who is a fan of Downton Abbey though, as the show has also developed a strong celebrity following over the years, with a number of stars admitting that they love the show. Michelle recalled the time when she bumped into Beyonce, who revealed that she was a big fan of Downton Abbey.
Dockery added, "Laura Carmichael [who plays Lady Edith Crawley] and I were at the Met Ball last year and Beyoncé told us she was a fan of the show," Dockery said recently. "That was an amazing and strange experience. ... Edie Falco is one of my favorite actresses, and I met her at the Emmys last year and I could barely speak. She said she loved 'Downton.'"
