George Clooney Tries to Get a Kiss From Dame Smith on Downton Abbey’s Christmas Special

During an appearance on the U.K. morning show This Morning, Laura Carmichael, who plays the hassled Lady Edith on Downton Abbey, revealed that George Clooney, who has been making the world swoon since 1994, dropped by the set to film a cameo for the show’s special Christmas episode. Carmichael described the scene between Clooney and Dame Maggie Smith (the Dowager Countess): “There’s a very brilliant moment with Maggie and George — I don’t know if I want to give away any more than that really — but George wants a kiss and Maggie ends up on the floor, it’s wonderful,” said Carmichael. After he goes in, Dame Smith is left doing a “comedy roll” off her chair. While that wouldn’t be our reaction to George swooping in for a kiss, to each her own. Downton Abbey premieres for our friends across the pond tonight on ITV. Meanwhile, we’ll just watch the trailer over again.
