Downton Abbey Behind the Scenes in EW—and a Quiz!

Mary and Matthew of Downton Abbey in Entertainment WeeklyDownton Abbey fans, if you haven’t already picked up a copy (or three) of the January 6 issue of Entertainment Weekly (featuring Rooney Mara as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Lisbeth Salander on the cover, which is another reason I was excited about this one), I think you’ll want to correct that ASAP: there’s a gorgeous six-page piece on the show dedicated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the set during the filming of Season 2. There are several really neat pictures (some of which can be seen in EW’s online photo gallery), including the one here of Mary and Matthew (*squee*). You definitely don’t want to miss it.

And because everybody loves a quiz (Megan told me so), you may also be interested to know that WETA Television has a Downton Abbey personality quiz up. Personally, I couldn’t resist seeking out my DA brain!twin (which, if you must know, turned out to be Robert, Lord G, who is absolutely not a stick in the mud, okay?!). Who’s yours?

I appear to be Mr. Bates, which seems to indicate that I'll be laying out your evening wear, Heather and -- what? -- wooing @EvangelineHolland. This might be more than I want to know.

I am Mr. Bates also! I don't know why, but maybe because I can tie a tie?

Oh dear, I'm Matthew! I'm the heir! Oh, that's great, because now I'll stop being so noble and go with my heart :D

I'm Violet, Dowager Countess of Granthan.....I am older but NOT that old. I do speak my mind and really don't care what others think. The description states that I am bossy (my family would agree) and that I almost always get my way (true) and that I don't suffer fools gladly ( very true) so besides being old, I guess I am her! :)

Yet another Bates. We are a decent, noble lot, aren't we? But Brendan Coyle will always be Nicolas Higgins in North and South to me.
