Dan Stevens Apologizes for Leaving 'Downton Abbey'

Dan Stevens is all suited up and smiling while leaving his Today show appearance on Thursday (January 9) in New York City.

The 31-year-old actor went on the show to promote his upcoming film Summer in February. He also chatted about the controversial decision to leave Downton Abbey.

“A lot of people were quite upset by that,” Dan said on the show. “I spend a lot of my time apologizing. Yeah, I get a lot of, ‘My wife was very upset by this. You have to apologize to my wife!’ Then they call them over. ‘Katherine! Come over here. This is the young man that upset you.’ ‘Say sorry!’ You have to apologize, in public … a lot, almost every day.”

“I suppose it was a surprise,” Dan added. “It’s a testament to how much people love the show, how much people love the character. In a way it was nice, but it has upset a lot of people, so I’m sorry.”
