McGovern, wearing a black sleeveless dress and bright red lipstick, said upon arrival that her character on “Downton Abbey” — an American woman married to an Englishman — “is a bridge between two countries,” which makes her “very proud.”
Also emphasizing the show’s U.S. ties, Bonneville said that another American character, played by actress Shirley McLaine, will soon be joining the cast. “I think we've got the special relationship pretty much nailed down,” he said.
