The American actress, who plays Lady Cora, Countess of Grantham, says she sometimes feels like taking a swing at her on-screen husband, actor Hugh Bonneville, because he is so convincing at playing a pompous aristocrat.

Elizabeth, 52, says she would love to have the “grace and dignity” of her Downton character but she has too much “anger” inside.

“I get totally suckered by his [Hugh’s] portrayal of Robert,” she says. “I don’t know if you can see it on screen but I’m often sitting there thinking, ‘One of these days I am going to wring your damn neck, you stuck-up, pompous snob.

“Watch me closely in the new series… see if you can catch me getting ready to kick his ass.”
