Downton's Dame

book cover image Maggie Smith

"What is a weekend?" Only Maggie Smith could ask that question and not look foolish.  As the formidable Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey, Dame Maggie Smith conquered millions of new fans.

Yet, Smith remains an enigmatic figure, rarely appearing in public. This biography, written with the actress's blessing and drawing on personal archives, as well as interviews with immediate family and close friends, is a portrait of one of the great actors of our time.

For Maggie Smith on DVD.
