Michelle will be reprising her role as Lady Mary in the highly-anticipated sequel Downton Abbey: A New Era, which is set to be released in March 2022.

Speaking at the event, she said of being reunited with her castmates for the sequel: "It's great, we had a really good time. We're like a big family now. And it's always great to get back with the old gang. We had a brilliant time."

The movie's first official trailer was released last month, and fans were delighted and surprised to discover that the follow-up will see the Crawley family travel to the South of France for a vacation. The trailer reveals that the Dowager of Grantham, played by Maggie Smith, has inherited a villa in the French Riviera, and it seems that much of the film will take place in the new location. How exciting!
