'Downton Abbey' Cast Talk About the Show's Final Season During TCA Panel

Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael and Joanne Froggatt pose for a photo at the Downton Abbey cast photo call during the 2015 Summer TCA Tour held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday (August 1) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The stars of the show were joined by cast mates Penelope Wilton, Elizabeth McGovern, and Hugh Bonneville for the photo call and panel later in the day.

“It’s strange saying goodbye to the castle,” Laura said during the panel about the upcoming final season of the show. “It felt like, for a split second, it wasn’t our home anymore – and, of course, it never was our home, but it felt like it. As soon as they said ‘cut’ on that day, you realized it was just pretend. It was very emotional; we didn’t want to leave.”

“I miss the peace of this world where everybody knew their place and accepted it. Life seemed so quiet by comparison. I think that’s part of the appeal and escape [of the show]. In today’s world, we contend with more information than we can actually absorb. In the world of Downton, we only know the circle that’s right in front of our face. There are limits to that life, of course, but it’s peaceful,” Elizabeth added about what she will miss.

FYI: Michelle is wearing a Dion Lee and Pierre Hardy shoes. Joanne is wearing an Ermanno Scervino dress. Laura is wearing a Halston Heritage dress and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.
