'Downton Abbey' loses another major character, most of its eye candy11/25/2012
Are you a "Downton Abbey" addict? If so, please sit down and pour yourself a drink … because Cousin Matthew is LEAVING THE SHOW. (*Gasp! Sound of crystal goblet breaking!*) Fans of the period melodrama are upset after a production source revealed Dan Stevens, who plays Matthew Crawley, will reportedly leave "Downton" after the first episode of the new season. This is bad news for the integrity of the show, especially since it’s the second major cast member bailing, after Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) quit earlier this year. So who will give Lady Mary her beautiful little aristocrat babies now? The bloody gardener? Harrumph, we say. Harrumph. [Source]
