'Downton Abbey' Season 4: Lady Mary is 'locked in her grief,' says star Joanne Froggatt

Check out this new clip of "Downton Abbey's" fourth season, which returns to the U.K. airwaves Sunday, Sept. 22 on ITV. In it, Lady Mary is quite somber and harsh -- she's obviously still grieving the death of Matthew and neither Anna nor her baby son can seem to lift her mood, which star Joanne Froggatt tells Zap2it is a hard situation for Anna because she so wants to help Mary."Lady Mary's not really turning to anybody at this point," says Froggatt. "She's very much within her own grief. She won't really express it with anyone. She's locked in her grief and everyone's trying to coax her back into the here and now.""Anna's kind of walking a bit of a tightrope with Mary in the first episode because Anna can see that Mary needs to get back to the here and now for the sake of her son, but Anna's in the position that... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/downton-abbey-season-4-lady-mary-is-locked-in-her-grief-says-star-joanne-froggatt.html

ITV has announced the premiere date for "Downton Abbey" Season 4 in the United Kingdom and it is just around the corner. Sunday, Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. local time on ITV the Crawley family will return to the airwaves across the pond. What's in store? Lady Mary choosing life (as opposed to wasting away after the tragic death of her husband) is going to be a main through-line of the story in Season 4, executive producer Gareth Neame tells Zap2it. The suitors will eventually come around -- because she is quite the eligible bachelorette -- but not right away. Lady Mary is still very much grieving the loss of Matthew when the series begins.
