anjelica huston loves downton abbey 'Downton Abbey': Anjelica Huston wants to 'pop into a part'We like to imagine that “Downton Abbey” is this super-cool night club where creator Julian Fellowes is the doorman and the list of actors wanting to guest-star is long (but distinguished). The latest thespian to be interested in the popular U.K. drama is none other than Oscar-winner and “Smash” star Anjelica Huston.

“I love ‘Downton,'” she tells USA Today. “I was raised in Ireland and England, so I could pop into a part. Somebody
like the Countess Markievicz (an Irish rebel), who they mentioned last
season. Maybe I could make a guest appearance.”

She also says that she thinks television is in a terrific age right now — “It’s taking over from movies, no question about it. Certainly for women” — and also cites “Love It or List It” as one of her favorite shows.

A woman after our own hearts. “Downton Abbey” returns to the U.S. airwaves Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014 on PBS.
