Maggie Smith is a worldwide pre-eminent actress for her career and for her role in Downton Abbey: elegant, funny, unbeatable.

What a marvelous actress! Maggie Smith, the nice magician in Harry Potter movies, is currently the unfriendly Dowager Countess of Grantham in the acclaimed TV series Downton Abbey. Maggie Smith has won two consecutive Emmy awards for her work in this series and in fact, she is the main responsible of the success of the series. She is Violet Crawley, so unfriendly as funny, so classist as sympathetic, so full of live as of old manners. She is ironic and smart, stretched but expressive and nobody can stop laughing when the camera focuses on her face.

The best moments of the TV series belong to her and jokes wouldn’t be so fantastic with other actress acting.

Maggie Smith was a British pre-eminent actress but now, she is a worldwide pre-eminent actress in a world were old women have many difficulties for finding a role and were films are thought for young handsome girls who spend all of the day in the gym.

However, thanks to actresses as Maggie Smith or Meryl Streep women model is a little smarter, because women are not only a pretty face… neither actresses.

Films, theater and television. Maggie Smith has had an extensive career. She made he debut in 1952 (theater) and of course, she is still performing. Her most famous movies include: Othello (1965), The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969), Travels with My Aunt (1972), California Suite (1978), Clash of the Titans (1981), A Room with a View (1985), Hook (1991), Sister Act (1992) or Gosford Park (2001) are part of our best moments. Now, with her role in Downton Abbey, Maggie Smith has overcome every expectation.

Congratulations Maggie!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September.
