A Costume Drama

If you’re a Downton Abbey fan (and who isn’t?), you might be excited to find out that Jessica Brown Findlay will be on the cover of next month’s Love magazine. If you don’t recognize the name of the actress, you’ll recognize her by her photo:

She plays Lady Sybil, of course. She looks a bit different on the magazine cover, however.

Such a lovely cover, but something tells me that the Dowager Countess would not approve.

Lady Sybil will only be on half of the magazines. The other half will feature Rob James Collier, the ever-scheming Thomas Barrow.

Thomas Downton Abbey

He doesn’t look nearly so slimy as he does in character. In fact I’d go so far as to say he looks downright attractive.

Love tweeted the covers today, and they’ll be on newsstands on July 30, at least in the UK.

Can you believe the third season will start in September? I thought the last season was really uneven, but it seemed to recover its footing by the ends, and I look forward to seeing where the characters end up next season. Will you be watching?
