Rejoice, 'Downton Abbey' Fans! Lady Sybil's Heading to The CW with 'Labyrinth'
After her (spoiler alert from last season) shocking death on Downton Abbey, we worried we might never see Lady Sybil — also known as Jessica Brown-Findlay — again on our TV screens. Luckily we were oh-so wrong, as the actress' mini/event series, Labyrinth has been acquired by The CW for its stateside premiere. Hooray! We're huge fan of the idea of event/miniseries, as it allows for a lot of people on both sides of the Hollywood spectrum (TV and movies) to come together in new, unexpected, and therefore exciting, ways. When they're as high-concept as this one seems to be? All the better. Besides, put Brown-Findlay in a period piece and there's a whole host of people who are likely to be on board.
Following the lives of two women separated by centuries (one in Medieval, the other in modern-day, France) but both searching for the Holy Grail. Featuring the impressive John Hurt (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and recently, Doctor Who ), Sebastian Stan (Once Upon a Time, both Captain America films) and Tom Felton (Every single Harry Potter film), the four-hour long Labyrinth the story will jump back and forth between the time periods to tell its story. Brown-Findlay, who is also starring in the upcoming feature Winters' Tale , will portray Alaïs, a woman who is given a book by her father that contains the secret of the aforementioned Grail. The series recently aired in the UK, where it received generally positive reviews.
