Maid in BRITAIN

Famous the world over as lady’s maid Anna Bates in Downton Abbey, Joanne Froggatt proves she’d far from bound by apron strings

"I never leave the house without my mascara on, but I’ll happily let millions of people across the world see me without it,” admits actress Joanne Froggatt. “I don’t ever care how bad I look on screen as long as it’s right for the character, even if it means avoiding the mirror at work. After all, it’s all about the person I’m portraying - I’m not trying to project who I want to be or how confident I feel as myself. And that’s quite freeing. That’s what I love about it.”

Chatting with Ms. Froggatt, you soon learn she’s absolutely dedicated to her craft, seeking out roles that will stretch her, mixing it up with TV, film, and theater, and never shying away from a new accent. Her approach to research is always rigorous and she also makes sure she takes on very different projects in between Downton. “I’d like to be accepted in all areas of the business and still be acting when I’m 80,” she says.

The other thing you can’t help but notice is how petite and pretty the 34-year-old is, something that’s easy to forget when she constantly appears in that starched apron and hair-hiding cap. Today, she is all cool elegance in dove grey, floor-skimming Ralph Lauren. And her insane love affair with a pair of the strappiest sandals reminds you that beyond Downton, she lives a decidedly above-stairs life. “A lot of people are surprised when they meet me. They usually say that I’m prettier. A lot younger. A lot thinner. I suppose that’s better than the other way around.”

Froggatt had to get used to public scrutiny early on, when, as a 16-year-old, she landed the part of Zoe Tattershall in Coronation street. “I was this really awkward little teenager, able to walk down the road with no one batting an eyelid, and within a week of being on TV, all that changed.” Some unkind (impersonal?) comments were hurled her way, no doubt because Zoe sold her baby girl, then stole her back, before the…(end)

I might have gotten one or two words wrong, but that’s what’s there.
