“Downton Abbey” is in full swing filming its third season across the pond. We already knew from an interview Elizabeth McGovern gave to the U.K.’s Sun newspaper that Season 3 will feature two weddings (which we hope are Lady Mary’s and Lady Edith’s). So is the show filming one of them?
Oxfordshire radio station 106 Jack FM posted a Facebook photo gallery that shows a bunch of photos taken in Bampton, which doubles as the village on the show. The actual photos don’t reveal a whole lot. But we were particularly struck by the photo above. That certainly looks like a man dressed in an old-fashioned tuxedo. Like what one might wear for a wedding? And it could be Dan Stevens, the actor who plays Matthew on the show.
It might be nothing, but we’d like to think it’s Mary and Matthew’s wedding that is being filmed. And it makes sense they wouldn’t be having the actual wedding at Downton, since that’s where Matthew was to be married to Lavinia.
How exciting to speculate. “Downton Abbey” returns to the U.S. airwaves January 2013.
