"Knew there was nobody nobody in the family had ever done that. Before my brothers I had two brothers were twins and they they both became architects but six years old but they could do these fantastic drawings and so that was that was a mystery. I think to my parents too because they had no idea that that was around in the family anywhere. We've maybe it never was but and so they wrote the way for me. If you know what I mean I've no idea where I got the idea from to do what I do but I think they ended alison. My my brother's kind of opened a lot of doors for me onto the world yeah made. It seem to be a very very interesting place or were you an entertaining kid to your friends. Did you make them laugh. I don't remember doing that particularly. I went to a school where they were the they they did did plays and things I was. I was never in those really but had very good English teacher who said to me that she thought I ought to do. it. She I know she saw something. Thank goodness because I think if it hadn't been encouraged I by somebody that serious. I'm not sure what would have happened to me. Do you watch your homes homes and your and your television performances. Why would only about them stunt part of the pressure so you're never you're never quite satisfied. One let me think why in name of God did I do that. I'm cringing listening to back seduce things now. I do it all differently now. We're all enjoying it and you're crunching. I do everything different that no I wouldn't. You can't go back and do that. When I told people I was going to interview Maggie Smith I just can't I can't tell you the number of people who said Oh my heavens. You're so lucky I just love her. and I think you know you've particularly had an expanded audience with Downton Abbey and the Harry Potter films but you know you such terrific career and you've achieved so much and so many people just love you and I'm wondering what that kind of mass adoration. It feels like to use it gratifying scary is it can even comprehend well. It only happened to me since Downton Abbey so I blame the hoofing on television. It's it's odd and I've said this before but I find it very difficult to to do anything on my own now because people recognize we this is never happened to me before because I haven't really done television before but but I suppose if you're in people's rooms over the time I don't know I was thinking that the other night with people like the Caprio uh-huh and the big stars in Cape launches and you just how do they exist. It's so difficult and I think now it's very intrusive zip because of these cell phones with cameras right. Why have you people want to take a picture of your take a picture uh-huh them with you and it's I know so. How do you do anything on your own. How do you react when someone well you know. John Cleese told me he just tells people don't do pictures. I'm sorry I do say that. It depends on it depends who who it is. If it's a very young person the trial of course you would but it it is incredibly intrusive. I usually say do you like having your picture taken it could maybe they do. I don't know and if it's not too intrusive you live in a fifteenth century farm houses that right. It's the moment it looks as though it's never been a tool because it's being I'm having to really have a go rewiring into things because it is indeed very old electric lights but yes. I think you ton every lies on with rubber. She's if you any sense. Do you want to take one question question about Harry Potter or would you rather be released which I will drive the pay release and you've been a to her okay well. No I don't know about what's that about Harry. what was it like to play that role to act in those films. WanNa tell you I just adore DINU. The Dan Radcliffe who I had what before Harry auctions spent a long time telling telling all the producers they had to see him because I thought aww said terrific and it's it's been sad thinking about it because of of Alan Rickman and yes he was such a terrific actor and that was such a terrific character he played and it was a joy. HP With Him we used to love together because we ran out of reaction shots. They were always when everything had been done and the children were finished they would turn the camera around and we'd have to various reaction shots of amazement sadness and things and we I used to say we got to about number two hundred and something we'd run out of knowing what to do when the cameras came around enough but he was he was joy joy Maggie Smith.

"Real story and when people say that would never have happened of course it did happen happen. Justice love affairs between seven thousand members of the family happened disapproved but they still happen and this particular story. Harry is based on the door of an L. who ran off with the groom. Actually it wasn't the Chauve was the groom and I didn't think it was a great distinction in that and they had to put up with it. I oh I think it was very difficult. And of course they rather encourage the couple to live in Dublin because it sort of easier if they're out of sight but you know families then families now when your children marry someone you would not have chosen for them. There is a moment where you have to decide. Am I going to quarrel with my son or my daughter and literally no longer have them in my life or am I going to find a way to get on with this person and I think most of us hope hope for the second and that's really what the grand themes have to do. What what kind of research did you do for Downton Abbey. I mean you obviously had a a lot from your from your own experience in discussions with your relatives. What kind of research did you do. You know one just kind of reads. A lot got a books around it. I mean the the truth is i. I've always been interested in the whole setup of the old world you know when I was young long. It had only just for many people come to an end you know. I was a little boy in the fifties and that was when a lot of people were talking in the Towel Holland selling the house and so I would see MT seven rooms and Mt Cupboards in the basement lined in Green Bay's or whatever if I can remember all that quite well so a certain extent I just would be imbibed it from the air but I also have read quite fight a lot about it. I mean one of the great advantages of the Internet. If you want to use a piece of slang or you want to use a song or you just type pin thing you go into the etymology dictionary gives you the year of first usage and so on or I printed usage but on on the whole I do sort of I mean sounds rather pretentious actually but but I do sort of know how this way of life worked at this this point and I take advantage of that really you said you saw houses with empty servants quarters because essentially that way of life had just disappeared. Yes I mean you know you go into the stable and there were no horses and then you go into the old kitchens huge old kitchens and there'd be sort of signs for the village fate and and you know old parameters and broken bicycles and things and they would have created some horrible slopped locked kitchen in some anti room upstairs and you know all of that was was very fresh. I mean one of the great changes now. Actually is that these houses one set of survived have essentially been reinvented by their owners who are normally the children or grandchildren of the ones who threw in the towel and they come twit differently this generation doesn't you know long for the days you were footmen behind every because they weren't there youth was spent after after let it come to an end so they just looked differently and they have different ways of running to now help in the house comes in from the village instead of coming from Dobbs as everyone calls each other by their Christian everything else it just runs on different wheels and I like that I like the fact that these houses have in a sense been reinvented kid and it's very attractive. Downton Abbey begins in nineteen twelve when there are all these social trends that that are causing the the the old order to begin to unravel did did your observation of kind of the disappearance of that way of life make you want to really explore the end of of of that period and the dissolution of the aristocracy. I just remember one one time. When I was quite young I was I forget now. Seventy is on and I was staying in a house and I got lost and I went through the wrong door and I was standing at the top of the staircase that led down into the kitchens and everything and and there was a tremendous row going on between a sounded like four five six people shouting and yelling and this now and I suddenly they had such a powerful sense of the lives that were being lipped by the people who work there and not you know only the family who lived Theban the people who worked there were also you know enjoying life will of hating each other loving each other or whatever and I suppose knows you could say that in that Moment Gosford Park and Downton Abbey were at least conceived whether or not they had yet been born and at some point I would explore that fairly simple emotional recognition that everyone's life is one hundred percent importance to them and who they are and you know I've been sort of innocence exploring it ever since Julian fellowes created Downton Abbey the masterpiece he series and also wrote the screenplay for Downton Abbey the movie which opens in theaters today after a break we'll hear more from fellows and from Maggie Smith known for her hilarious one liners as the Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey also Justin Chang reviews the new film Ad Astra starring Brad Pitt.

Here's some of my two thousand sixteen interview with Maggie Smith who plays the Dowager Countess in the series and the movie but first. Let's listen to what Julian fellowes. The creator of the series and screenwriter of the film had to say about that role. I spoke to fellows in two thousand thirteen eighteen. The Maggie Smith character in in doubt Abby is just such a delight T. Tell us who she is how she fits into that so the family well she she really as. I said she's really based on. My eldest. Great aren't who was quite tough character but she was no tougher on anyone else since she was on herself in fact in real life she had quite tragic life. Her husband died of wounds at the end of the first World War in her only child filed drowned on active service in the second so she had a lot to babble thing that she was toughened funny and some of the phrases that Matt you know what's a weekend and and stuff like that come from remembering Gosford Park. One one question Maggie asked me. She said I didn't understand about the Momma. I and I said Oh well that was this particular aren't because lady treatment goes fit is also sorta based on it and I said this particular and always thought that if a house ran out of its own jams jellies than it was it was not being well run than it was a sign of its weakness. Oh she said I've got it. I've got it and she does that line. So wonderfully fluency looks into the Jam Pot and says bought mom laid. I call that vide- feeble and and I what I love about Maggie's that she has this extraordinary skill to bring many different aspects of a character into her delineation but they never seem contradictory victory that she never turns into a different person a lesser actor. Would you know find it difficult to be kind and cruel simultaneously apoe superficial here at quite deep here but she manages to synthesize all these elements into a believable woman we should hear one of these moments and this is from the first season where she and lady Grantham played again by Elizabeth McGovern are sitting and discussing the difficult matter of finding a suitable husband for lady Mary the oldest of the Crawley daughters how about smoke house parties. She's been asked to one next month.

This is an actor as well as a writer and much of his writing has dealt with class distinctions and how they affect human relationships he grew up the son of a diplomat with an aristocratic background ground and he has a title himself Lord Fellowes of West Stafford his screenplay for the two thousand and one Robert Altman Film Gosford Park won an Oscar. I spoke to Julian Fellowes in twenty thirteen. Julian fellowes Lord fellowes welcome to fresh air and it's nice to be here you know a lot of your writing both for television and film and your novel involves distinctions of Social Class no that you grew up the son of a diplomat with an aristocratic heritage. I believed Steve. Did you have servants growing up. Now I mean I think my background is much more ordinary than the newspapers of made it I mean you know we we we have people who came in and did some cleaning but I mean who. D- plenty of other people have that I think in a way why became quite aware of classes a kind kind of live defining issue is because my parents came from different backgrounds. My father's was grander than my mother's and and so my mother had to sort of put up with the disapproval of my fathers relations and I suppose from that grew a kind of interest in in a way the unfairness of class the fact that it is so arbitrary and its selection and you know so so nothing to do with merit and yet it shapes alive and and creates entitlement and all sorts of other factors that that Oh you know have a long-term effect on us one of the things that makes Downton Great and Gosford Park which is a movie I really love is the intimate look at the servants the life downstairs. Where did you become so acquainted with their lives and customs and rules? You know I was lucky. In one way I mean I was Oh kind of one hundred and fifty years old and so when I was young I still had great aunts and that kind of thing who had lived to a degree that life before the first World War I mean my eldest great aunt who is really the model for Violet Grantham was born in eighteen eighty you know and she was presented in eighteen ninety eight and married before the first war and all of that and I knew Bevaqua she died when I was twenty one so I was able to hear a lot of this stuff I and where I was tremendously lucky is. I was interested when I was young one of the problems we you know when you don't get interested in things until uh-huh much older is a lot of people are dead and because I was interested as a teenager there were still many members of the family who could talk about what life had been before the first and second wars and union. I was very glad to hear it well. Let's talk about Downton. Abbey and I wanted to play a clip from season one. this is a moment at a table in the kitchen downstairs where the servants are all having tea and we hear one of them's. O'Brien who's played by Sharon Finneran disparaging urging Matthew Crawley. He's a cousin of the master of the House who's arrived on the scene and may inherit Downton the whole place will hear shuffling of furniture whereas the servants spring to their feet because lady Grantham who's played by Elizabeth McGovern suddenly showed up in the kitchen and has overheard Miss O'Brien her own lady's maid talking Talking Down Matthew Crawley. She rebukes Miss O'Brien and this leads to an interesting exchange after that among the servants. Let's listen. I'm sorry I have stemmed. It's interesting something episodes and if anyone thinks I'm going to pull my phone can kurt it to this. Mr Nobody from Nowhere Brad Discussing Mr Cruelly yes melody is at your place to do so I've got my opinions melody and the body. Can I help you leadership. This is the button limousine from an evening co-defendant lying on the gravel but I was shocked at the talk. I heard as I came in. Mr Crawley is his lordships cousin and heir. You will therefore please according to the respect. He's entitled title to but you don't like him yourself. Milady never wanted him to go sailing perilously close to the window Brian. If we're to be friends you will not speaking that way again about the Crawley's or any member of Lord Grantham family. Now I'm going to rest wake me at the dressing gown.

Imelda Staunton on the New 'Downton Abbey' Film
"Today today after making a name for herself on the West End Stage Imelda Staunton shot to international fame when she started in the Mike Leigh Drama Vera Drake in two thousand and four it earned her an academy award nomination for Best Actress. Imelda Staunton is also the winner of three Olivier Awards for best actress in a musical for her roles in into the woods sweeney any told and Gypsy in two thousand and sixteen. She's back on screens this weekend. Joining the cast of the feature film version of Downton Abbey she spoke to Monaco's has been Ryland for me joining it now because I'm not in the series and although my husband who plays Carson isn't the series or do feel. I've lived but I think that's that's very interesting to think. NCA- about. Should we want things to stay the same and yet I also think within the story that Julian fellowes has given the female characters. You know I've could a very interesting story line because I come into it but women questioning there. Should I be living in this big house with servants. What what what's happening with the world and yet the audience crave costs and someone steady. They want things to be steady and safe because we are going to hell in a handcart hot. Let's face it to cling onto something that has got tradition. If you like and that's why I dare say we're all obsessed with the royal family or just something that is stable because it's all over the place and I think it stability that people want and yet we have to sort of we have to move within that the big question of course is which tradition should we hold onto and which ones should we move on from and we all collectively need to make this decision and in a microcosm sort of way that's the the dilemma faced with many of the characters you'll your character wants to make a decision without giving anything away that would be quite untraditional it would be against the idea of what what people do you and there are other characters such as Maggie Smith who looks at this and says no things shoot remain how they've always been and it's it sort of feels like a wider dilemma that we just don't know which ones we should hold onto to know but in film terms that's tension and that's what you need to make a drama. There's no point of us will sit making a film that everything's fine or everything's terrible you have to the tension is like the tension between Maggie Smith Skirt and Penelope Wilton character which yes you think about it. She doesn't belong to the House and so her role throughout the series was almost almost and I'm a I'm quoting her now but she was the window from the audience into Downton again will is that right and she could question on behalf of us. You know what was going on on and I think you have to be malleable with all these traditions and you have to move all family of how to move with the Times with you will in Kate and and how it has to move on and I think Downton has embraced that the film you know the fans just desperate for the film and I think they'll be delighted with it but I think they'll be delighted with it because although it's a chocolate box and it's a fantasy they're serious points in the film and I think you know for what it is. I think people go uh no. I think that's that's quite true if the made the cooks assistant questions. Why are we having to do all this the king and Queen or why are we having to you know just just questioning just putting things out there. I think it will make people listen to more than just oh what we have tea and dinner served. Well absolutely it's. It's such a cozy film but also you know we were talking about traditions and in a way the film is about nostalgia isn't it. I found myself coming out of a wondering whether it really is a love letter. Tunis eligible naught because there are so many elements of the film that while very much of the time that he's being depicted here. It's also making it clear that time is moving on culture is moving on whether these people choose to understand it or not the the king and Queen that come to visit wouldn't have any idea about this secret secret gay club. That's happening without anyone's knowledge behind these on March doors you know there is an element of a coach is moving on even if these people are living all all alone in a happy little place in their own little bubble at the end of the film it did make me one east this and affectionate love letter to nostalgia all has more of a reminder that all things will eventually end even Downton Abbey the series the film perhaps the structure itself yeah. I think it's both I think it's it you can give and take away and I feel that you know Downton. Abbey was Sunday night fair and it's not political to cope with a big P. It's as you said it's cozy television and it's feel good and that's that's what this is. We must pretend as any different than the there were few little ingredients. It's in their little bit risky. You know and that's within its remit. I think it hits all those marks and yes you know anything about the old days. It's no style Jake and and Britain does that quite well. I Suppose Julian fellowes you know with Gosford Park for goodness sake all those years ago he knows how to do that. So you see you can push the boundaries so fall with film right Downton Abbey and I think he's done it and I think he's served the regular characters. I'm aware on the periphery of at the end of the regular characters are who the fans want to see and this is a film that has been made because of the demand of the popular you know how many people one hundred twenty million people watching it so he's given them what they want. I think Imelda Staunton they're one of many stars of the new feature film version of Downton Abbey Speaking to Ben Ryland Downton Abbey is out in cinemas

"It was very loose about a country house involving a murder that was it. And I knew I could do it. I thought I know this stuff, but what I did do is because it was men, and I I thought probably he had to be talked into this. And he was very American. I mean, they're Khanna and one of the most legendary American directors of all of all his Paul Thomas Anderson with that's why he makes movie he was going to way from his territory. Yeah. And an eye. Do this. And I thought what I want is. When he gets the first drop to the script. He's going to open it thinking who here goes nothing. And then he's going to read it and the MO he reads Moi's gonna see it's an open movie. So I rushed out, and I found every movie I could have videos, I spent three days watching and that multi arc narrative, which I later went on with for danton. But you know, you have some big Arsenault right over the picture. Some those sold in three see look, California split or natty Bill all of his movies have this. And I wanted him to see that exact same structure was being played out at a shooting weekend in Gloucestershire. And so he read the script, and he told me off to it's actually 'cause I then I sent it in. And I got this invitation to fly out got a phone you to work on the script with him for a few days. And that was the first moment of the whole. Process that I thought it might happen. I did you allow excitement did you allow yourself to become excited because it doesn't seem like you try to tamp expectation down a bit. Well, that I that was the first time, and he later told me that until he'd read the script he never believed it would have. So I love this moment. I really love it so much being my wife, and I both writers and having these Hollywood careers where it's up and down over and over again. So I just I I love this moment that you and your wife decided to fly your club class talk about it. Can you just talk about it a bit? For me. Because now you're in the house of lords and your Julian fellows, and you've you're you're landed in every way imaginable, and it's important. I think to understand that before Gaza park for which you won the Academy Award. You weren't sure you could afford to fly yourself to America in a way that would allow you to work. So can tell the story. Well, couldn't afford it. Really? And we got the see I lived in California for a couple of years earlier on night act to the bit. I enjoyed it. Actually, I people city didn't. But I loved it. I had a great time. But when I left I the next time, I come back to California someone else's paying for my tickets powerful. And I kept that I didn't break. But now, I was being fed back. But of course, I was being back third. Yes. All the way in the back coach. Yeah. And which is fine. Yes. And so we had the normally fine. But from England to California is an cry. It's ten hour flight, and they'd promised you the hotel, right? And they said you tell you have a day off you won't be working until Thursday, usual. An MS said, no, I think we should pay club for you to fly out shadow care coming back coming back. You can hold onto the undercarriage. But going out because if they want you to work straight away, you must have slept on the fly. If you're the back, you won't have slept. It all so we did. But it was a big thing for us. Yes. To put up that money that it was an investment. What happened when you landed? I landed they said we're going straight to the studio now all men rugs. Wait. Yes. And you wanna drive yourself? We rented car here. So I I mean that in itself hope the other side of the thing, and I got to drive there. We have to sit I have to be absolutely on the button straightaway.

It was that kept you turning was it as you were writing these things you wanted to solve this puzzle. Was it that you liked what you felt like when you were writing. Like what what happened that made you decide I'm going to this lonely work. I think to one is my wife who by then had been married to me for about ten years now about thirty. But tend in those days had always thought I was going to end up a writer why she thought this. I don't know mine too amazing. And so that was always in my head.

I remember thinking who am I trying to kid is ever going to this is useful to hear because all of us feel that way? And someone is accomplished as you feeling that way gives comfort.

That never scripted Balabagn showed Almon that never has not gotten made. Even though it changed your age my life. That's say young righteous. Actually, you don't know what role a script may play in your life when they're writing it. They think this is a wonderful script. It'll get made it'll change my life. But the truth is most produces a looking for rights to work on an idea they already have. And so you don't have to dig in. If that script gets you the job to write the script. They're looking full. It's done its work. It has served its turn in your lies long as asking you this stating, but I would guess as long as when you get that assignment you understand how to make that work. Well, or do you think just take the job there? You. Sometimes you state job. Let's not get out selves. But I think the major step you need to be a bit lucky.

"Thought that would be fun to explore the american heiress but later when she lived the life in england and she had that thing which you see among all our friends where your children are different nationality from yourself and they have different prejudices and different assumptions and how do people deal with that which interests me anyway and so in that sense cora grantham was born at and then you know i don't know if you write for television but when you've started to imagine characters you have actually accepted the job even if you don't know it and so that's how it began and the relationship between cora and mary is so delicious because mary almost thinks of her own mother as unworthy of her class well that really came from a very grand english friend mind who spun in a great family and married into a great family and so that fabulous woman but she had had an american mother and i always noticed that when she spoke of her mother that was associated faint era of tolerance you know that she was a good woman at heart and must be forgiven a foley and and i show that came from having an american mother and as i watched it i found it so amusing that i thought when i was putting the series together that would be fun to mine there has been some criticism of course and it basically is that by showing the upper class as a sensually benevolent and kind and exhibiting sort of nostalgia for that period when people knew their place you were yourself sending a political message there's there's a labor leader in britain named francis o'grady who said unfortunately britain is becoming like downton abbey in the sense that the living standards of the vast majority are sacrificed to protect the high living of the well to do and in saying so he was he was criticizing downton really that was in the context of that so what what is your kind of response to a number of people who said that it wasn't perceived as equal the two classes will they weren t quill at that time i mean in terms of their intentions and character that you were essentially portraying the upper class as more sympathetically than the servants down soy just think that's true tool i like the servants more than often people's favorite characters and something like the romance of honor in bates was absolutely a seriously dramatized as the romance matthew and mary i i think that is false once i think is not false is that it wasn't an equal society and there is a limit to how much you can throw a kind of pink cloud over the past you you have to represent their values the contemporary values reasonably honestly i mean when totally with dealing with thomas's sexuality for instance we couldn't immediately have every sympathetic character saying this is great the house in nineteen twelve that wouldn't be their response and so what i strove for was to have some people who didn't mind like robots grantham oh mrs hughes kostin who was rather offended by the whole thing and so on so it would be reasonably balanced but i you know i think you abound to do that if you'll representing a period in history but i don't think it was a benevolent view i mean these i heard one guy on television in america say the terrible injustice of the show was that julian fellowes had portrayed the upper classes as likeable well you know that's just known since i mean in any group of people some people ally qabala some people are not some of them are good looking some not some of them are clever some of them are stupid and that's true of any class of any nationality of any religion of any social grouping you can find and the idea that one class is unlikable is reasonable as saying one people has rhythm one people is good with money it's all nonsense as and and so i would absolutely reject that one of the most moving i think many there are many moving moments in the series but they often occur when the two classes meet and in this scene that we're about to hear is when mary's husband matthew dies in a car crash as we mentioned and her butler carson consoles her let's listen.
