Laura Carmichael on Saying Goodbye to 'Downton Abbey': 'It Was Very Emotional'

Laura Carmichael poses for a picture with Downton Abbey co-stars Michelle Dockery and Joanne Froggatt during the 2015 Summer TCA Tour held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday (August 1) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Penelope Wilton, Elizabeth McGovern, and Hugh Bonneville were also seen at the panel and photo call that day.

“It’s strange saying goodbye to the castle,” Laura said during the panel about the upcoming final season of the show. “It felt like, for a split second, it wasn’t our home anymore — and, of course, it never was our home, but it felt like it. As soon as they said ‘cut’ on that day, you realized it was just pretend. It was very emotional; we didn’t want to leave.”

FYI: Laura is wearing a Halston Heritage dress and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes. Michelle is wearing a Dion Lee and Pierre Hardy shoes. Joanne is wearing an Ermanno Scervino dress.
