Downton Abbey with American Accents

The stars of Downton Abbey are promoting the final series in the US.

On Wednesday evening they appeared on  Stephen Colbert’s Late Show.

Michelle Dockery who plays Lady Mary, Hugh Bonneville who plays Lord Grantham and Allen Leech who plays Tom  were told by the host   that when Americans watch the BBC show, “we hear that accent, and we think of it as very classy.”

The experiment  which the cast took part in was meant  to examine if the show would seem as elegant with a new style of speaking.

The result was the hilarious video below.
