Downton Abbey is easily one of the biggest hit shows, but leading lady Maggie Smith explains that she has actually never watched it!
Smith, who stars as Dowager Countess of Grantham, explains that she doesn’t want to look back and see the things she has done wrong, ITV reports.
“I don't sit down and watch it. No, I've never watched it,” she explained in an interview with 60 Minutes.
"I will look at it when it's all over, maybe, because it's frustrating - I always see things that I would like to do differently, and think 'why in the name of God did I do that?,'" she adds.
Steve Kroft, baffled that she doesn’t watch the hit program, insists that she may be the “only person in England” that doesn’t watch the show.
Smith has taken on other hit roles as well; she is most recognized for her role as Professor McGonagall in the Harry Potter series.
