The 79-year-old star, who plays Martha Levinson in the hit ITV1 show, is gearing herself up to film the fourth series but says she won't act on her feelings for Coyle, who plays the role of Bates.
"I love doing Downton,” she said. "I loved it from the moment I showed up on set. We were all out in the rain and the wind and everybody was acting away and so good. I have kind of a crush on Brendan. He’s quite mysterious. You don’t really know what he’s up to."
MacLaine explained that she told Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes what she thought of Coyle, which led to him arranging a lunch date.
"I think he wanted to see if there were any cougaring sparks flying,” she said.
