The Downton Abbey movie has almost finished filming, and we’ve got a release date, so it’s all coming together pretty nicely.
We don’t know the story of the film yet, but – with plenty of cast members coming back – if you were hoping that Dan Stevens’ Matthew Crawley would make an appearance, then we’re going to have to disappoint you.
Mrs Hughes, also known as actress Phyllis Logan, appeared on today’s (November 8) Loose Women to talk about the film, where she was asked if the fan favourite character would appear in some capacity, like a flashback or as a vision.
Oh yeah, he died at the end of series three. Spoilers, we guess?
“He comes back as the ghost of Christmas past,” she joked, before the panel suggested he could do a Dallas and appear in the shower. She added, “It was all a horrible nightmare.
“No, sadly, he’s still dead.”
She added that the film takes place “a couple of years” after the show ended, “but no more”. Logan has also wrapped up her scenes, with general filming ending in a few days time.
Matthew Crawley isn’t the only character not returning, as Lily James has confirmed she won’t be back as Lady Rose MacClare (who is still alive, we think).
The Downton Abbey movie will hit UK cinemas on September 13, 2019, with a US release a week later. Loose Woman airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
