‘Downton Abbey’ season 4: Hugh Bonneville on ‘Twenty Twelve’ success (CARTER)
While we certainly understand viewers in America knowing Hugh Bonneville for precisely one thing, the reality is that the man is a jack of many trades. “Downton Abbey” has caused him to gain international fame, but one of the joys of being on such a show which only shoots around ten hours of TV a year, including the Christmas special of course, is the flexibility that it later allows to take part in a variety of other television programs.
One of those other shows was “Twenty Twelve,” which is what Bonneville was nominated for yesterday at the annual BAFTA TV awards. He did not end up winning, but the series itself did win for Situational Comedy (or sitcom, as we like to call it here in the land of abbreviations otherwise known as North America).
