Downton Abbey

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). In Season 1, Cora discovered she was pregnant, but an unfortunate bath time incident involving the twisted lady’s maid Sarah O’Brien (Siobhan Finneran) led to a miscarriage. No matter life’s setbacks, however, Cora moves ahead with her head held high, doing what she can to guide her wayward daughters.
