good plan darling. If you need a cuddle, let me know x
Day whatever of Downton Abbey, I've lost count. Lady Sybil has just died (sorry if I ruined that for you Elizabeth Drake), and Lord Grantham is definitely Lord of stupid decisions. From losing the family fortune and now the doctor. He's a lovely man, but has a room temperature I.Q.
Seeing and Jessica Findlay Brown in "The Manners of Downton Abbey" makes me missed Matthew and Lady Sybil... 😟
Gosh, the Downton dog on its final days is almost as sad as Lady Sybil's death.
Oh man, there's more Downton for me to not watch because Cousin Matthew and Lady Sybil were my favorites
I just finished watching the sad death of Lady Sybil on Downtown Abbey!
I just finished watching Lady Sybil have her baby on Downtown Abbey. Such joy!
there are no pictures of Lady Sybil on the Downtown Abbey instagram. what's the point
I confess - I have started the Aurifil BOM over again, using Downton Abbey fabrics. The fruits and Veggies were not working very well, as the scraps I have kept getting smaller. Think I will make a string-something with what's left. Below please see -starting in the upper left - The dowager Countess (alias Maggie Smith), Lady Mary in the navy, Lady Edith in the floral, and Lady Sybil (deceased) in the green.
hypertensive disorders in pregnancy is scary stuff. Lady Sybil died of Eclampsia in season 3 of Downton Abbey. I love that show.
HD Jamaica Inn starring Lady Sybil from DA and Nathan from Misfits yay!
Jessica Brown Findlay stars in Jamaica Inn – or is it Les Miserables? (Picture: BBC) At first glance, it looks as though Lady Sybil has been whisked away from Downton Abbey and dropped into a TV production of Les Miserables – but that would be… [ 197 more words. ]
No, this is not Lady Sybil in Les Miserables – it’s Jessica Brown Findlay working up a sweat in Jamaica Inn
Am about to talk to Lady Sybil from Downton Abbey in a should I curtsy?!
So very recently, I finally caught the Downton Abbey fever and managed to watch two & 1/2 seasons in less than a week. But after finishing season 3 episode 5 last night, I have to take a break from it for a few days due to emotional exhaustion. Tom & Lady Sybil was the stuff of romance. I thought I was done with OB after nursing school. Eclampsia,,, I just can't deal with you anymore?!
Jessica Brown-Findlay talks about her role as Emelia in "Albatross" and about Lady Sybil in "Downton Abbey".
It’s the weekend before Stitches and I’m busy packing up kits for the Kira K Designs booth (One of my favorite kits to put together is my Belle Epoque Shawl using Canon Hand Dyes yarn with colors inspired by the characters of Downtown Abbey. Here is the full collection. The top row is the ladies, from left to right: Lavinia Swire, Lady Sybil, Lady Edith, Lady Mary, Dowager Countess, and Isobel Crawley Bottom row is the gents: Mr. Carson, Matthew Crawley, Tom Branson, Sir Richard Carlisle, Mr. Bates, and Lord Grantham I put these together based on colors rather than characters, so some combinations, like Lady Mary & the Dowager Countess or Lord Grantham & Mr. Bates, make sense, while others like Tom Branson & Sir Richard Carlisle or Lady Sybil & Lavinia Swire, are a little funny. If anyone has suggestions on color combinations, let me know!
I'm not sure that I would have left a successful show like Downton Abbey for a flop like Winter's Tale, after all, Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) managed to find time to stay and have a role in Monuments Men and Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) is doing the same with Non Stop. Let's hope Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay) doesn't come to regret that decision
Downtown Abbey.is back season 4. THERE’S a dark cloud over Downton Abbey as season four dawns. It’s six months since a season three which left viewers reeling with the shock death of Lady Mary’s (Michelle Dockery) beloved Matthew (Dan Stevens), *** the heels of her sister. Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Finlay) dying in childbirth. Behind the pall of loss a widow and widower left as single parents struggle with the grief, trying to find a new path and purpose..
I love how Lady Mary and Lady Sybil are starring in movies being released soon. Of course Lady Edith doesn't have one of her own
Eva Marie Saint is the only reason to see the new film WINTER'S TALE. And maybe seeing Lady Sybil alive again.
I took Zimbio's 'Downton Abbey' quiz and I'm Lady Sybil! Who are you?
Tom and I went to see A Winter's Tale last night. Sweet movie! If you are one of those folks who cannot suspend belief and get into the fantasy, you won't like it. If you have been morning the loss of Lady Sybil on Downton's Abbey, you will see where she went as she is the romantic lead in this movie. The movie is a bit clumsy but we enjoyed it. It has a great cast, word is the director called in a number of favors. Collen Farrel, Russel Crow, Will Smith, Jennifer Connely, William Hurt and, the wonderful to see, Eva Marie Saint. Go to the matinee.
WINTERS TALE w/ Russel Russell Crowe and Colin Farrell opens Friday Feb 14th (Valentines Day) with a special preview Thursday night at 10 pm. "Irish immigrant Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) is a mechanic forced to become a thief. When his gang, led by obsessed demon Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe), is about to capture and kill him, he's saved by a flying white horse who becomes his guardian. But it is the love of Beverly Penn ('Downton Abbey's' Lady Sybil, Jessica Brown Findlay), a young woman dying of consumption in an estate he is trying to rob, who may unlock the human 'miracle' Soames is intent in stopping in "Winter's Tale." Based on a 1983 book.
I fear Lady Sybil will fall victim to David Caruso Syndrome.
To All Downton Abbey fans - There are some movies that are coming out that feature some of our favorite actors/actress from Downton Abbey! They sure are popular! The Earl of Grantham (aka Hugh Bonneville) will be in The Monuments Men - Release Date February 7th. Lady Sybil (aka Jessica Brown Findlay) will be in A New York Winter's Tale - Release Date February 21st. Lady Mary (aka Michelle Dockery) will be in Non-Stop - Release Date February 2014 Looks like February will be a good month to go to the movies!!!
Lady Sybil is costarring with Colin Farrell in his new movie coming out 2/14. Sorry, I would've quit Downton Abbey too.
So...Winter's Tale--it's Lady Sybil & Colin Farrell time traveling from Dublin to New York with magic knives and microfiche? Right?
Is Winter's Tale only worth seeing because Lady Sybil is in it? Yes, please. Well, and Colin Farrell and his natural accent.
Good to see Lady Sybil made a full recovery from dying and is doing well with Colin Farrell
I’ll be first in line for Winter’s tale because of Colin Farrell, love, Lady Sybil, and Akiva Goldsman shut up shut up shut up
Nightingale Wood is to Cold Comfort Farm what Lady Edith is to Lady Sybil. Yeah, they're sisters.
Lady Sybil is going to be in a movie with Colin Ferrell. It's gonna be a must see!
Just read an article about Downton Abbey in the Parade magazine this morning. Apparently the reason they killed off Lady Sybil and Matthew is because the actors didn't want to do a 4th season. I'm almost sorry for the way I've been bad mouthing them for all this time. Mea Culpa!
The countdown to Downton Abbey is on. January 5th the 4th season premiers, but tonight, RVA's own The Byrd Theatre & Foundation is hosting a sneak peek. For our most avid fans we found a list so you can brush up on your Downton trivia: 1. Each episode of Downton costs a whopping £1 million to produce. Worth every penny, in our opinion. 2. Downton Abbey is full of rare antiques, such as Napoleon's actual mahogany desk in the music room - don't touch it. 3. Jessica Brown-Findlay (Lady Sybil) is trained as a ballet dancer and only took up acting when an ankle injury meant she could no longer dance. Not bad for a back-up career plan. 4. Dan Stevens (Matthew Crawley) read 145 books while on the Downton set due to his position as a judge on the Man Booker prize panel. 5. Matt Milne (Footman Alfred) is almost a giant at 6ft 4, and Martha Levinson's little lady's maid Miss Reed (played by Lucille Sharp) has to stand on a box so they can both fit in the same shot. 6. The parts of Lord Grantham, John Bates and th ...
Matthew Crawley's death on Downton Abbey did not shock me, I was saddened, but Lady Sybil's death shocked, saddened, and enraged me. I have to admit she was of the three, the sister that I had a crush on. . was Debra Morgan's death because you thought she was healed. What fictional deaths shocked you this year.
A BRAINSTORM! Tonight I was at my in-laws celebrating an early Christmas, and as I overheard two conversations at dinner, I had this brilliant idea; at one end of the table, couple of people were talking about Duck Dynasty--one of the most talked about shows on television--and at the other end of the table people were talking about "Downton Abbey"--'the' most talked about show on television, and that's when it hit me: "Duck Abbey"...or "Downton Dynasty"...or "Duckton Abbey." WHATEVER...it's just a working title at this point anyway. At any rate, the premise of the show would be that one of Lord Grantham's daughters marries a member of the Robertson family, probably Lady Sybil since she seems most open to marrying outside of the blue bloods. I mean if singularly that such an incredible success, imagine what they could do combined.
It will be a night to remember. What character will inspire your attire for the evening of January 24th...Violet, Cora, Robert, Lady Rosamund, Lady Mary, Lady Edith, Lady Sybil, Isobel Crawley?
A "Downton" Weekend in Georgia. Calling on all Downton Abbey Fans.a chance to meet Allen Leech who plays the character of Tom Branson. The Sea Island resort in Georgia is celebrating the January 5 debut of the fourth season of the British series "Downton Abbey" with a weekend inspired by the show and hosted by Allen Leeach, who plays the character of Tom Branson, the outspoken former family chauffeur and widower of Lady Sybil. From January 17 - 19, Mr. Leech will lead three events over the course of 3 days: a "Downton Abbey" pub quiz on Friday evening, a question and answer session on Saturday followed by a 5-course dinner paired with wine and an episode screening on Sunday followed by an early 20th century-themed ball. It promises to be a fun weekend.
I stopped watching Downton Abbey because my favorite characters died, Lady Sybil and Matthew Crawly :(
Downton Abbey fans...the murder and removal of the Russian Tsar and imperial court takes place at the end of WWI . Remember what a shock this was to Lady Sybil . I've always admired Russian Imperial life. What a tragedy.
can we PLEASE talk about Lady Sybil & Matthew Crawley's death? Need their reactions
. Lady Sybil, Downton Abbey. Also, Mufasa's death was hard too.
Damnit people. I like Lord Grantham too. He's a nice guy. Decent. But he's also a *** and I hold him responsible for Lady Sybil.
It never gets easier to watch the episode of Downton Abbey where Lady Sybil gives birth and... Right in the feels. Ow.
Ok i'm going to stop my Lady Sybil spam now but you have to agree that Jessica Brown-Findlay is so perfect
I wouldn't say that Lady Sybil is crazy... but she is very definitely a dragon lady. Not the scary kind, though.
Jessica Brown Findlay who played Lady Sybil chose to leave though:/ and why did Dan Stevens wreck him?
Rewatching Downton Abbey season 3, and I'm on the Lady Sybil episode. 💔😰
I'd rather be Lady Sybil and dead than be Lady Edith
Whoever wrote up Downton story in today's Times is not a fan of show: says allen leech is filming his first scenes since Lady Sybil died
So much drama in my life right now, bro! The chauffeur of Downton Abbey & Lady Sybil have confessed their love to Lord Grantham & the famz!

A couple nights ago I had a dream that Tom Branson and Lady Sybil from Downton Abbey were helping me find my missing earplugs. I realized I should tell Lady Sybil to wait to have kids, but just before I got a chance I woke up. I could have changed everything, you guys. (Casey).
Wow, so Lady Sybil's (Downton Abbey) death had me bawling for a good 20 minutes. I mean outright crying in a fetal position as I held onto Layla. *** you Masterpiece Theatre!
It occurs to me that Downton Abbey is really Jane Austen's last novel Persuasion, but with the sympatheticness of the characters all topsy-turvy. Lord Grantham is Sir Walter Elliot (but responsible), Matthew Crawley is William Elliot (but good), Lady Mary is Elizabeth (but sympathetic), Lady Edith is Anne (but unsympathetic), and Lady Sybil is Mary (but smart and nice). Tom Branson is Charles Musgrove (but socially unsuitable). Sir Gilbert develops from Captain Wentworth (but ineffectual and ultimately unsuccessful). This all fits.

I know I'm late to the party, but first my beautiful Lady Sybil and now Matthew? Couldn't they have taken Edith instead?
Luckily, Lady Edith has a much better doctor than Lady Sybil did. Zack [pic]:
