Guest Picks: Dan Stevens

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Dan Stevens plays Matthew Crawley on the hit series "Downton Abbey," on PBS's Masterpiece Classic. Although he didn't join us for our conversation about season 2 of the series, he shared what he's been reading and watching recently -- as well as his love of Indian food!

What have you read or seen lately (book, play, film, etc.) that moved or surprised you?

          The Artist – beautiful, simple film: revolutionary in its retrospective exploration of everything cinema was and can be.

 

What are you listening to right now?

         Freddie Stevenson’s new album, “The City is King.”

 

What’s the last great book you read?

            Patti Smith’s ‘Just Kids’ – a love letter to my favorite city in the world.

 

What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

             The film ‘Outbreak’ – I love disaster movies and this is a classic!

 

What’s your favorite comfort food?      

             Indian – every time.

don't know about his not having the right to leave the show; after all he should be true to himself as a priority not to the show or its fans. But I do agree with the concept of the two people lost being the moral center of the show. I hope that does not represent more than a coincidence.

VERY UPSET with Dan Stevens for leaving the show. It is selfish, with no concern for all his fans. I understand that he wanted to try other mediums, he could have done both.
I had never watched "soaps" and have defended that this title was not for Downton, but now with Sybil and Matthew leaving (who both were the series "moral center") I feel that I have lost my defense.
