Abbey Laura’s trou­ble get­ting knix Downton

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

DOWNTON Abbey star Laura Carmichael has lifted the lid on the show’s em­bar­rass­ing WEE­ING se­cret.

The ac­tress, who plays posh Lady Edith, says the wardrobe depart­ment were forced to al­ter the pe­riod cos­tumes be­cause they couldn’t go for a slash.

Fe­male stars who wear the old-fash­ioned out­fits were strug­gling to go to the loo.

Laura ( above), 28, said: “There was an an­noy­ing mo­ment in se­ries two where our corsets were at­tached to our stock­ings, which was a night­mare. The un­der­gar­ments are a lot bet­ter for us now.”

But the star ad­mits she still hates the cos­tumes be­cause they are so fid­dly – and ad­mits peo­ple are sur­prised when they see her wear­ing nor­mal clothes in real life.

She added: “I hate the pe­riod cos­tumes a lot. Maybe be­cause you keep hav­ing to be fid­dled with and sewn in.

“I some­times feel peo­ple are dis­ap­pointed when they see me in jeans. You’ve spoilt their fic­tion slightly.”

THE top of the Eif­fel Tower leans away from the sun, as the metal fac­ing the sun heats up and ex­pands. It can move as much as

seven inches.
