Maggie Smith doesn't watch her 'Downton Abbey' TV series

UPI News Service, 02/14/2013 

Maggie Smith told CBS' "60 Minutes" she doesn't watch her wildly popular period drama series, "Downton Abbey."

The British actress, 78, has won numerous awards for her portrayal of acid-tongued Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, on the show, which airs in the United States on PBS each season after its ITV premiere.

Asked in a "60 Minutes" interview to air Sunday if she is proud of the show, Smith hesitated, reported.

"I haven't actually seen it, so I don't -- I don't sit down and watch it," she said.

"Never?" her interviewer pressed.

"No, I haven't watched it," she said.

Smith went on to explain she is a perfectionist who doesn't want to see what she might have done differently by reviewing a finished film or TV show.
