Downton Abbey Cast Secret Revealed – They’re Really From Wisconsin

Backstage at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, three Downton Abbey cast members revealed a hilarious secret – they’re not British at all. They actually hail from Wisconsin. In the words of Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and Allen Leech below, “Go Cheese!”

The bit was a follow up to another funny moment on the couch with Colbert when the three actors lived out a Downton Abbey scene in full American accents. As the title notes, it sounds utterly bizarre. You can find that video below, too.

Rest assured, the show’s final season which premieres Jan. 3 on WPT has plenty of twists and turns, but probably won’t find the Granthams visiting long-lost family in Green Bay. Although we wouldn’t complain if they did. Go cheese!
