Why Sybil had to Go!
The 23-year-old actress, who played Downton Abbey’s rebellious youngest sister Lady Sybil, told Radio Times: “I didn’t want to fall into my comfort zone too much…”
Findlay Brown shocked viewers by departing Downton Abbey when her characer Lady Sybil died during childbirth half way through series three. “My contract was ending and I was unsure about signing away another year. Leaving me terrified, and that’s what made me want to do it,” said the actress.
“Being afraid and going into the unknown excites me, and what scared me more was to keep going and then one day discover it was all I could do and wish I had pushed myself more,” revealed the star. “I’d prefer to fail and fall flat on my face.”
