The Lowdown from Downton Abbey

Elizabeth McGovern, Dan Stevens, and Michelle Dockery

In August 2011, as filming of Downton Abbey's second season was wrapping up, Elizabeth McGovern, Dan Stevens, and Michelle Dockery spent several days visiting the West Coast. During their whirlwind trip to San Francisco, they spoke with On Q's editor about their experiences filming the series. Find out what they did to prepare for their roles, which is their favorite room in the Downton house, and which question they're most tired of being asked.
