Laura Carmichael (born Southampton, England; 1986) is the actress who plays Edith Crawley in Downton Abbey

Laura was working as a receptionist between theatre jobs when she was asked to read for a role for Downton Abbey. She was waiting to find out if she would be going to Dubai to appear in a stage production of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night", but turned it down to wait for Downton Abbey. Everyone told her to not get her hopes up, but she got a call back and then a few days later was told that she had the part.[1]


  • Like Edith, Laura is the middle of three sisters.
  • Laura had a minor role in the film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
