Lily James To Leave 'Downton Abbey' for 'Cinderella' Promo

And another one is leaving Downton Abbey

Lily James, who plays Lady Rose in the period drama, will not be returning to the program for season six, Daily Mail reports.

Promo duties for the upcoming Cinderella are fighting with Downton‘s filming schedule and Lily isn’t able to do both. “It’s a very important film for Disney, and you can understand them wanting their leading lady to be available to promote it,” a rep shared.

But don’t fret, Lily‘s Rose isn’t being killed off like Jessica Brown-Findlay or Dan Stevens were. While we don’t know details on where Rose will be during season six, the producers are hoping that she’ll be able to come back for the special Christmas episode.
