Downton Abbey stars flock to London's Leicester Square for world premiere

DOWNTON Abbey stars flocked to London's Leicester Square this evening for the world premiere of the highly-anticipated film.

Cast and fans were out in force on Monday night at the glamorous bash at the Cineworld Leicester Square ahead of the movie's release to the general public on Friday.

Michelle Dockery led the red-carpet glamour dressed in a dazzling, floor-length gown.

The 37-year-old actress, famed for her portrayal of Lady Mary Crawley on screen, looked every inch the star in the gold, one shoulder number teamed with gold hoops and her raven hair in waves.

Jim Carter, who plays Mr Carson, arrived with wife Imelda Staunton, who has joined the cast of the movie as Lady Bagshaw.

The couple shared the red carpet with seasoned cast mates Geraldine James, Sophie McShera, and Douglas Reith.

The early arrivals beamed as they posed for photo's in front of the world's press, just days before Downton Abbey will hit UK cinemas on September 13 before coming out in the US a week later.

The film has been over two years in the making after fans demanded a movie adaption of the famous TV drama.

But it's two years too long for fans, who can't wait for the movie version of the hit ITV series to hit the big screen.

And they'll not be disappointed by the cast, as old favourites have reunited for the film version of the hit TV show.

The Downton Abbey movie is set in 1927 and focuses on a visit by King George V and Queen Mary.

Staunton's Lady Bagshaw is one of Queen Mary's ladies in waiting.

She and her maid, Lucy Smith, accompany the king and queen when they visit the stately home.
