Maggie Smith Will Stay on 'Downton Abbey' 'As Long as the Show Runs'

Maggie Smith made some comments over the weekend which suggested she would be leaving Downton Abbey after next season.

Now, however, the 80-year-old actress’ rep is stating that she actually did not mean that she would be leaving the show and that she was just speaking lightheartedly.

“[Maggie] has always been on the record as saying she’ll be with the show for as long as the show runs,” her rep told The Wrap.

Downton Abbey just wrapped up another season over the weekend. Maggie portrays the Dowager Countess of Grantham.
