Cowardly humor, sharp reflections and sharp punchlines, the matriache of the Crawley clan has marked Downton abbey. His role as an old aristocrat as intelligent as a coward has earned him 3 consecutive Emmy Awards in 2011, 2012 and 2013, as well as a Golden Globe and a SAG Award. Not to mention that before being a star of the small screen, the English actress distinguished herself in the cinema, where her career was crowned with awards, including two Oscars (for The Belles Years of Miss Brodie, in 1968, and California Hotel, in 1978), and where it was particularly successful thanks to the Harry Potter saga.
