My Week: Well done to all at ‘Downton Adare’
LITTLE did I think when I first became a huge Downton Abbey fan that I would ever get to make a contribution to the British costume drama! I am over the moon to be partaking in short advertisements (stings) that appear before each episode. I was absolutely overjoyed when Oxendales first approached me with this project last summer. All the stings were filmed in the majestic Adare Manor which lent itself beautifully to the whole Downton Abbey theme. Renowned Limerick actor Nigel Mercier did a fabulous job as he played the part of my butler. Far from the glitz and glamour of fashion shows, four of my models appear as chambermaids throughout the stings. It was an immensely enjoyable experience for everyone involved. The new series of Downton Abbey premiers on September 24 at 9pm on TV3.
