JANUARY is proving to be quite a month for Downton Abbey actress Raquel Cassidy, who hails from Fleet.
Having landed a major role which will see her on the small screen in The Worst Witch every week until April, the former Farnborough Hill pupil flies off to Los Angeles today for an awards ceremony on Sunday.
Raquel will be accompanied by fellow Downton stars after the period drama – a worldwide hit – was nominated for the Ensemble Award for the second year in succession by the Screen Actors Guild ( SAG), an award the show romped away with last year.
