Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech on Series 4 + The Imitation Game

Flicks And The City caught up with Downton Abbey star Allen Leech at London’s FrightFest today.

Allen was there to promote his latest film, the brilliantly tense psychological horror In Fear (out in UK cinemas on 8 Nov), which also stars Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and is helmed by Sherlock series 3 director Jeremy Lovering.

After telling Flicks And The City about the rather unique way In Fear was shot, Allen also chatted to us about playing Downton Abbey’s former chauffeur Tom Branson, series 4 of which will be on UK screens in 3 to 4 weeks, he told us.

Check out the video to see what he said about how he’s enjoying the leap in time on series 4, whether he’s as much of a rebel as Tom, and how much he’s looking forward to working with Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley on new movie The Imitation Game about enigma code-breaker Alan Turing.
