DOWNTON ABBEY SEASON 3 – MACLAINE’S VISIT June 4, 2012 · by Jay Tomio · in Television (BOOM TRON)
TV guide has delivered more details on Downton Abbey’s season 3, specifically regarding MacLaine. Martha Levinson is from Long Island, and like much of characters in the show already, is said by MacLaine to have “interesting” reactions to class and tradition.
MacLaine goes on to say that she was disappointed to not share scenes with Brendan Coyle’s Mr. Bates, who she points to as one of her favorite characters, but did particularly enjoy sharing time with Jim Carter’s Carson. Of the meeting that I think came first to fan’s minds when her casting was announced, MacLaine says of the Maggie Smith portrayed Dowager Countess, “Our characters’ relationship is probably not what you’d think,” Shirley says. “Maggie and I are both so old, we have a lot of time on us to discuss.”
