Jessica Brown-Findlay
It's Lady Sybil Crawley ofcourse!

Quote:
Jessica Brown-Findlay (born 14 September 1989) is an English actress. She played the character of Lady Sybil Crawley in ITV's Downton Abbey.

Brown-Findlay trained with the National Youth Ballet and the Associates of the Royal Ballet. Aged 15, she was invited to dance with the Kirov at the Royal Opera House for a summer season.[1]

Jessica attended Furze Platt Senior School in Maidenhead.[citation needed] At the end of her GCSEs, Brown-Findlay was accepted to a number of ballet schools but chose to go to the Arts Educational School, because of the A-level courses it provided and its pastoral care. She attended for two years and in her second year had three operations on her ankles, the last of which went wrong. Waking up from the anasthetic, she was told she couldn’t dance anymore.[1]

After encouragement from an art teacher, she applied for and got onto a Fine Art course at St Martin’s. While there, she took up acting classes. After being seen by a casting agent, she was cast in the lead role of Emelia in the film Albatross, directed by Niall MacCormick. She was cast in an episode of the E4 programme Misfits and in Downton Abbey.

I love her! She looked beautiful in a Vogue UK shoot (September, I think?) I would scan it but my scanner is broken

Nope, the Issue with Kate Moss on it, I forgot which month that was.
I was just looking through some fashions on Downton Abbey and that outfit she wore in ep 4 is just devine.

Ahh... I love Jessica's Lady Sybil! Such a fantastic character and a great actress. I love seeing that it seem's she has good style. Really love that long black gown and the teal lace dress paired with the leather jacket. It looks like she has a fondness for lace but also slightly edgier looks.

She is so beautiful. I can't believe she is the girl from Misfits, as well. I love me some Lady Sybil.

^Oh that's good news. I haven't seen Albatross yet but it looks good from what I can tell. It'll be interesting to see her in a role outside of Downton Abbey.
