Every time you have come to grips with reality, that Downton Abbey is coming to an end, another story airs stating the contrary. It seems the saga keeps on going and Gareth Naeme will not let it die.
For those that do not know who Gareth Naeme is, he plans the scripts and storyline with Julian Fellowes. So he is a major player when dealing with how the story will come to a close.
In a recent interview with Gareth, he made all the usually required statements to the press about how the storyline would come to a close.
Mr Neame said: “We want to answer all the questions that people are asking: will Edith get a break? Are Bates and Anna going to get any good news? Is Mary, with all the ups and downs that she has had over the past 12 years of the story, going to see light at the end of the tunnel and settle down?
“I don’t know that they are all necessarily going to be OK because, don’t forget, we’ve always said that this show is about the end of a way of life, the end of an era.
But then, he adds:
“But I can confirm they are not all going to be wiped out by a meteorite. At the end, as we leave them to their own lives, yes, the door will be left open to come back to the majority of them in the future.”
Many of the tv cast didn’t even know how big the television series had become, because for some, it was their first acting job,
“Downton was my first television job. I was so excited and happy to be in the company of the actors I was in I didn’t realise the hype around it,” she said.
“It was around October time of the first series that Hugh Bonneville, who plays Lord Grantham, said to me, ‘Laura they aren’t all like this. Not every single TV job you have will be so big’.
It’s been heartfelt and people are really going to miss such a time savory period drama. But, like Naeme expressed. The door is not closed for some magic to occur, so fans have something to relish in that.
Lastly, this show did more than just touch the lives of people around the world, but also saved Highclere castle itself. The financial state of the estate is not looking so good. So this show has resurrected its health!
