It’s a match made in British television heaven! One of the leading ladies of ITV hit Downton Abbey is rumored to be romantically involved with Matt Smith, the star of celebrated British sci-fi hit Doctor Who. So who’s the lucky lady?
That’d be Lily James (Rose MacClare)! Amid whispers the 25-year-old had finally found herself a worthwhile dance partner, the blond beauty was spotted getting cuddly with 31-year-old Matt. Beside the wide grins both continually flash at each other in the photos, Lily at one point snuggles her arm right into Matt’s arm — girlspeak for “mine.”
Cameras caught the two out on the town this weekend as they took in North London. Lily brought along her bike and both stars went for casual wardrobes as they linked arms and grabbed lunch.
“Matt and Lily looked really into each other laughing and joking throughout the meal,” a source tells Express. “They had a natural chemistry and were very touchy feely.” The two should have some time to get to know one another; Matt stepped down from Doctor Who at the end of last year while Lily’s said to be on her way out at the Abbey.
We hope Lily has better luck offscreen than she has on Downton Abbey. Viewers of Season 4 will recall her brush with a drunken oaf in tails and, later in the series, her failed engagement with an American jazz singer. Maybe now that things are looking up for Lily, she and Michelle Dockery can arrange a double date.
