Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael on ‘gift’ of ‘life-changing’ Lady Edith role

The show, which is based on the novel by crime writer Michael Robotham, was inspired by the true story of a newborn who was kidnapped in Nottingham back in 1994.

Between the first and second series of the show, Laura welcomed a baby into the world with her partner and Downton co-star Michael C Fox.

She shared that since having a baby of her own, the storyline runs much deeper for her in terms of separation from her child.

Both series were shot in Australia with Laura’s family being able to stay with her for the duration of the shoot.
