Julian Fellowes Teases Possible ‘Downton Abbey’ & ‘The Gilded Age’ Crossover

Julian Fellowes Teases Possible ‘Downton Abbey’ & ‘The Gilded Age’ Crossover

Julian Fellowes is gearing up to release his latest period drama, HBO’s The Gilded Age, on Jan. 24, and he’s teasing viewers could see a Downton Abbey crossover.

“I’ve learned this much, never say never. I’ll stick with that as my answer,” Fellowes told Deadline with a smile regarding the crossover.

Downton Abbey fans would not take the cheeky grin lightly. Such a crossover is possible and would make perfect sense as it pertains to Downton character Cora Levinson Crawley (Elizabeth McGovern), an American heiress who marries British blue blood Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville). Though she was born in Cincinnati, Cora revealed she has an aunt in New York that was still alive in 1914.

Possible aunts include Jeanne Tripplehorn’s mysterious Sylvia Chamberland or Carrie Coon’s new money honey, Bertha Russell.
