Sophie McShera As Daisy Mason On Downton Abbey
One of the crowning achievements of Downton Abbey, other than attracting millions of loyal fans, has been its ability to transform its actresses into completely different people. Sophie McShera is a dazzling beauty but her character, Daisy Mason, is an “ordinary girl” you probably wouldn’t take a second glance at on the street. It seems surprisingly easy to transform a beautiful girl into a “commoner” when you put up their hair, film in drab colors, and replace their designer dresses with basic clothing. We do appreciate anyone who acts and allows their character to speak for their work instead of relying only on their looks.
