Here’s some scoop on Dan Stevens sad exit from Downton Abbey. It turned out not to be a very Merry Christmas for Downton fans.



Dan Stevens: Why I left Downton Abbey

Dan Stevens looks shaken. We are in an empty restaurant in New York and I have just become the first outsider he has ever told about his death in Downton Abbey. “It is very odd,” he says.

After the Christmas special yesterday, the entire world knows that honourable, handsome, happy Matthew Crawley has died at the wheel of his car, reducing a nation to tears of dismay and disbelief. At the time of our interview last month, there was a lot of speculation, but no actual confirmation. “It is very strange to make it official especially since we are talking about it in the future perfect,” he says, with a laugh. “I am not sure exactly what tense it is, but it is something very weird.”

Dans literary aspirations, his desire to be more than just another TV sensation, meant that though his fans wanted him to stay, they knew that he would probably choose to go.



And though season 3 has come to a conclusion in The UK on iTV, the season 3 Downton Abbey fun doesn’t start in The United States Until January 6, 2013.
