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!

      It’s a nightmare with Downton Abbey… we could be watching Rambo or The The Texas Chain Saw Massacre! We’ve spent two weeks watching Maggie Smith! (just kidding, sorry).
