KQED Interviews Lesley Nicol — Mrs. Patmore on Downton Abbey
The characters above stairs at Downton Abbey often seem to get much of the attention — the women certainly get the better costumes. How about hearing from someone who spends most of her time below stairs? Actress Lesley Nicols (Mrs. Patmore) spent several months at the end of 2012 living in Los Angeles with her husband (and their two dogs). She spoke candidly to KQED about how she came to get the role of Downton's bossy cook, how she prepared for the role, her (lack of) home cooking skills and about being recognized at Starbucks.
