Downton Abbey Characters:
Anna Smith portrayed by Joanne Froggatt
In His Eyes from Jekyll and Hyde would work well for Mary and Lavinia, post 2x05! With Mary as Lucy and Lavinia as Emma.
… these are the ones I’ve settled on so far and, for lack of anything better to do with my time, I made a photoset. This needs to happen.
It’s so perfect :’)
THE SCENE THAT PUTS ALL OTHER SCENES FROM ALL OTHER TV SHOWS TO SHAME
Julian Fellowes heard our prayers for a Downton musical and made everyone sing! YAY!
‘Begin the Beguine’
It’s a beautiful song, about lost love… recorded first in 1935 and there are over 118 official versions out there…
It could be a song for Mary and Matthew. But somehow I see Isobel and Reginald dacing to this song under the setting sun. :)
should probably have a song similar to “A Heart Full of Love” from Les Miserables.
How about a rewrite of Petula Clark’s ‘Downtown’ ?
When there’s a war,
You are a girl and you need work.
You can always go DOWNTON.
They have no footmen
to deliver the dinner.
The maids need to serve, DOWNTON.
Thomas and O’Brian even have their nice sides, I’ve seen.
Mr Bates’s wife’s a cow who I hope will die quickly.
So Anna he can choose.
Sybil should bet on Branson.
Mary should tell Matthew soon, that she really loves him.
DOWNTON, the servants are great here at
DOWNTON, the Ladies and Lord are too,
DOWNTON, drama is waiting for you.
[Downton, Downton etc.]
Believe me, it’s like it was written for Branson. :)
(AGREED! Anthem is gorgeous!)
