As Downton Abbey
fans eagerly await the fourth season of the British period drama, guest host Kevin Sylvester speaks to Hugh Bonneville
about class tensions, plot shockers, and inhabiting the character of Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham.
Bonneville takes us behind the scenes of a show he describes as being "authentic" in its own world and meticulous in detailing, from accurate menu cards to
uncomfortable dinner jackets. He figures the show's widespread popularity has to do with its inter-generational appeal and its 'Downtonesque' approach to social and political issues.
"There's one particular big shock coming up which really pulls the rug
out from the idea that this is just a cute, cozy show about people
losing cufflinks occasionally."
