Countess of Grantham Cora Crawley
Countess of Grantham, Cora Crawley (Elizabeth McGovern) lends an air of grace and decorum to the halls of Downton Abbey. Her American fortune saved the estate when she married Earl of Grantham, Robert (Hugh Bonneville), with whom she had three daughters — Mary (Michelle Dockery), Edith (Laura Carmichael), and the late Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay).
