One of the main stars of ITV’s Downton Abbey smiled for the crowds as filming came to an end in Alnwick.
Cast and crew from the popular ITV period drama have been in the Northumberland town for almost two weeks to shoot this year’s Christmas special.
And Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary Crawley, was captured entering Alnwick Castle, the entrance of which had been turned into York Prison.
Dressed in a winter coat, the actress smiled to the crowd as she was filmed going inside.
Earlier this week, snow machines were wheeled in to give the castle and town a winter blast despite the summer heat, with Bailiffgate transformed into a magical winter wonderland.
Lady Mary and Lady Edith, played by Laura Carmichael, were also seen wrapping up warmly for a stroll by the river in the Pastures.
And Kevin Doyle’s butler Molesley and Raquel Cassidy as maid Baxter clearly were spotted stepping out into the street from one of the entrances to the Duchess’s High School, which had been turned into the Crown and Anchor pub.
Filming for the show was finally wrapped up on Friday.
During the last fortnight, many of the cast and crew were spotted filming in Alnwick Castle, the Pastures and Hulne Park.
And, when the cameras stopped rolling, familiar faces from the series were spotted in pubs and tourist attractions around the town.
Jenny Taylor, 29, from Alnwick, said many of the cast were seen enjoying what Alnwick has to offer. She said: “Lots of the characters have been seen out and about.
“I know Lady Mary was at the Music Festival last weekend and Hugh Bonneville was seen at Alnwick Garden.
“A few of the younger male cast members were also seen in some of the pubs, including the Tanners and the Fleece.
“There has been a real excitement around the place, particularly earlier last week when they were shooting snow scenes outside the castle.
“I went down to see what was going on and there was a big crowd of people that had gathered.
“We didn’t see many of the main stars until they started filming Lady Mary going into the castle. She had trouble opening the door to get in and the crowd were laughing. She just turned round and smiled at everyone.
“It’s great that we get big names coming to film at the castle. I think it puts Alnwick Castle on the map.”
For nearly two weeks, the cast and crew moved rom Highclere Castle on the Hampshire/Berkshire border, where Downton Abbey is usually set, to Alnwick.
