Downton Abbey stars take on other roles

By Associated Press In Los Angeles | China Daily | Updated: 2016-03-04 08:37

What's happening to certain Downton Abbey stars is downright criminal.

Joanne Froggatt, the TV drama's vulnerable Anna Bates, is morphing into a 19th-century serial killer in PBS' Dark Angel. Michelle Dockery, who plays coolly elegant Lady Mary, is a sleazy American ex-convict in TNT's Good Behavior. And Kevin Doyle, the good-hearted Mr Molesley, is a bad-hearted police detective in Netflix's Happy Valley.

The end of Downton Abbey on PBS after six seasons means new career paths for its stars, with both the upstairs and downstairs crew embracing change-of-pace roles - although devoted viewers may want to enshrine them forever as their beloved characters.
