Lesley Nicol

Since graduating from London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama in the early 1970s, Lesley Nicol has been a fixture in the British drama and comedy scene. But before her foray into film and television, she was a well known as a stage actress, appearing in numerous musicals and plays on the London stage.

Discussing her role as Mrs. Patmore, whose failing eyesight touched many a viewer in Downton Abbey's Season 1, Nicol says, "It's just great to be part of something this good. I go dog walking a lot. People I've never spoken to before come up to me and give me a hug. Other people say, 'Hello, Mrs. Patmore' and ask after my eyesight! It makes me laugh."
