Thank goodness for Downton Abbey.

In a world that can often feel like it’s gone mad from general awfulness, the cast of everyone’s favorite period drama can always be counted upon to look amazing in promotional materials. And, thankfully, we’ve got some more of them, as a whole new set of character photos have dropped in advance of the highly anticipated feature film’s September release.

Did You Know ‘Downton Abbey’ Star Elizabeth McGovern is in a Band?

While American actress Elizabeth McGovern is probably best known these days for her involvement in the very British Downton Abbey, in which she plays Lady Cora Crawley, she also has a few hidden talents that might surprise those who only know her from the popular costume drama.

For example, Did you know that when she’s not busy filming at Highclere Castle, McGovern regularly fronts a folk-rock band called Sadie and the Hotheads? Yup, her seven-piece group which will be embarking on a ten-date US tour along the East Coast this December. The band, which was formed in 2007, has seen something of an uptick in popularity since the rise of a global appreciation of all things connected to Downton Abbey.

The tour will kick off in Washington, D.C. on December 4 and wrap in Hartford, CT on December 14.
