Dowager Countess Violet Crawley – Downton Abbey Trailer Sass

The Dowager Countess, Violet Crawley (played by the none other Maggie Smith) brings her A-game in this 20 second Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer. With all that is being talked and joked about, it seems that Violet has quite the sassy mind. Isobel Crawley takes Violet’s simple comment to an over the top height, making the short clip rather amusing.
In the clip, it’s clear that Isobel is worried about her relationship with a man and violet is trying to explain to her only what a man wants. Let’s just say Isobel went straight towards the gutter.

History and Life

Violet Crawley (played by Maggie Smith), the Dowager Countess of Grantham, is without a doubt the best character on the period drama television series Downton Abbey. Moreover, she brings a comedic relief where it is much needed.

Violet Crawley is a protective women who never believed in her sons marriage to the American heiress, Cora Levinson. She rather keep her families name out of the public eye and from discussion. As you might know, she likes to have a somewhat firm grip on the family matters and uses her cunningness and competitiveness to get things done. She is extremely sarcastic which makes her a fantastic mind on the show.

For those of you who don’t know much about Violet’s history, she was born in 1842 to a baronet. They seemed to be impoverished and didn’t have any money to her name when she got married. She got married to the Earl of Grantham sometime before 1860, she brought upper class blood but very little dowry. She would give birth to 2 children, Robert (the Earl) and Rosamund. Unlike their mother, they married into money rather than nobility. She was not keen on Robert’s marriage but did reap the benefits.



As the anticipation ratches up for the next installment of Downton Abbey, the Countess must always control her excitement.

Downton Abbey Memes – What Is Expected for Season 5?

Part 1 of 3: Downton Abbey Memes

Downton Abbey has had its share of television show giggles and laughter with the creation of images that people find funny. Often, these images will be subjected to mimicry, some of which have nothing to do with the show itself (but are still hilarious in general).
Everyone loves to laugh, it really cleanses the soul. It releases dopaminergic (feel good chemicals in the brain) effects that enables individuals to relax. Come September and January, respectively, new memes are bound to surface. Until then, we wait in anticipation for the show to start…. The day that season starts, many of us will be expressing ourselves through the art of…
