See Rose Leslie in Downton Abbey series six

Former housemaid Gwen Dawson is back - and she's looking rather fancy...


Downton Abbey is playing host to a few familiar faces this week. Tom Branson is back with Sybbie in tow after a change of heart in America, while former housemate Gwen Dawson is also set to return. 


Gwen, played by Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie, left the Abbey at the end of season one. She quit service to be a secretary and hasn’t been seen since. That is, until now, when she arrives on the Abbey’s doorstep, looking an awful lot fancier than when she left… 

No news yet on what prompts her return, but one thing’s for sure – she’ll need to be bought up to speed on all the dramas that have occurred since she left. And that’ll be one complicated conversation… 



Downton Abbey continues on Sundays at 9:00pm on ITV
