9 actors who have left Downton Abbey for better... or worse

13 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

For many actors, Downton Abbey was their first big break in television.

But not everyone can be a Lord Grantham or a Carson. For many - whether they chose to leave or were written out - their fortunes changed after exiting the ITV drama.

So after the news that Dan Stevens has joined Beauty and the Beast, Digital Spy looks at the careers (so far!) of 9 actors who have bowed out of Highclere Castle...

1. Ed Speleers

After starring in series three, four and five of Downton, Ed Speleers left Jimmy Kent behind for another role in a big budget British TV drama.

We most recently saw him in the part of Edward Seymour in Wolf Hall, and he will also star in upcoming films Remainder and Howl. Most prominently, he's been cast alongside Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter in Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.

Cinderella's Lily James denies CGI claims: 'I do have a small waist'

23 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cinderella star Lily James has denied that CGI was used on her body in post-production.

The actress said that the media interest in her waist size is "hypocritical" and "so negative" during an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

She said: "I naturally have a really small waist. The skirt's big and the corset pulls me in, and that's the point. That's the shape [costume designer] Sandy Powell created.

"I think it's all very hypocritical, and they contradict themselves, and they're drawing more attention to it. I think all that stuff's so negative, and you've got to let it wash over your head."

James added: "I'm so healthy. I've got hips and boobs and a bum and a small waist."

Cinderella also stars Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden as the Prince and Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother.

Helena Bonham Carter, Derek Jacobi, Stellan Skarsgard, Sophie McShera and Holliday Grainger also feature in supporting roles. »

Lily James, your new Cinderella, has another Disney dream role: Ursula

4 March 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I want to be Ursula in 'The Little Mermaid,'" Lily James, the star of "Cinderella," confessed. "I don't know. Maybe I need to grow and get bigger tits, and then I'll do it." Though James is basically a showbiz newcomer most known for her arc on "Downton Abbey" as Lady Rose McClare, she's got the casual candor of a veteran actor. Maybe she learned that from her august "Cinderella" costars Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter, who play her wicked stepmother and fairy godmother. "Cate has been one of my favorite actresses of all time," James told us. "To watch her was amazing, how she transformed into this woman. It was intriguing." Check out our interview with James where we discuss the movie's exceptional costumes, the difficulty of chatting with CGI mice, and why she's still never worn a glass slipper.  »

Review: 'Cinderella' conjures some new magic from a classic tale

2 March 2015 3:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the past half decade Walt Disney Studios has spent a great deal of time and money to create live action versions of some of their own animated classics.  While these films have performed at the box office, creatively they were often lacking.  The studio may have finally found its own fairy godmother in the form of director Kenneth Branagh and his new adaptation of “Cinderella.” The Oscar nominated filmmaker is best known for shepherding new versions of "Hamlet" and "Henry V" to the big screen.  The former was released almost 20 years ago, but Branagh earned a reputation for bringing a modern sense of realism to Shakespeare's creations even if the stories were still set in the distant past.  This talent made him a smart choice to direct the underrated "Thor" and an even better hire for a movie that could have been just another shell for Disney’s consumer product division. »

Cinderella is one of the most beloved tales in Disney's long history, and now, with the live-action adaptation of the classic story hitting screens, a whole new generation will get to enjoy the enchantment and wonder of this timeless princess tale.

One of the most spectacular and fantastical elements in the film is Cinderella's wish-granting fairy godmother -- played by Helena Bonham Carter -- and when all the stars turned out for the film's world premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, they knew exactly to wish for if they had their own fairy godmother.

"I would ask for my family to be well, and healthy and happy for the rest of their lives," said star Richard Madden, who plays Prince Charming. "And an Aston Martin as well, maybe."

Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer had a similar idea of how to really make good use of a wish »

5 must-watch March cinema releases: Chappie, Insurgent, Cinderella

1 March 2015 2:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We're only three months into 2015 but already it feels like blockbuster season is here. This month sees the next instalment in The Divergent Series, a new offering from Neill Blomkamp and Disney reinventing an old classic in live-action. Add these to an Oscar winning acting showcase and the latest from Studio Ghibli and March is looking golden.

Release diary: What movies are coming out in 2015?

Digital Spy rounds up the five films you have to see this March...

1. Chappie

Release date: March 6

Why you should see it: All the talk surrounding Neill Blomkamp at the moment is surrounding his proposed Alien sequel, perhaps overshadowing the fact he actually has a new film coming out. Following on from District 9 and Elysium, the filmmaker's third feature Chappie centres on a police robot who's rebooted and develops a consciousness. Look out for a mulleted Hugh Jackman, Die Antwoord playing themselves and startlingly »

13 Reasons Why Elizabeth Taylor Is Still the Queen of Hollywood

27 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's time to raise your glass and rattle your jewelry for a birthday toast to Elizabeth Taylor, who'd have turned 83 on Feb. 27. Though memories of her begin to fade, the legacy of the woman who was perhaps the most beautiful, most popular, most everything movie star of all time remains as vivid as ever.

Younger moviegoers may wonder what all the fuss was about. Here, then, are 13 reasons why Taylor remains, decades after her prime and four years after her death, the queen of Hollywood.

1. In a way, she never left.

Even though she died in 2011, they're still showing her in commercials for her perfume, White Diamonds.

2. She's the original diva.

Long before Beyonce, the Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez, and other current divas, Taylor pretty much invented the concept that a celebrity's offscreen life was just as much a performance as onscreen, and just as much part of the job description. »

Never let it be said that the Disney Corporation has failed to master the art of marketing. Although a full-length Frozen sequel is not yet on the way, Disney has decided to append a short film, Frozen Fever, to the beginning of its upcoming Cinderella. With a return to Arendelle and the now beloved characters that inhabit it, Disney has practically guaranteed that Cinderella will have a strong opening weekend. Plus, we do have to admit: the trailer for the short does make it look enticing.

Frozen Fever features a return of our favorite characters from Frozen as they prepare to throw Anna (Kristen Bell) a birthday party. Preparations are underway with the help of Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), but then Elsa (Idina Menzel) gets a cold and her powers get a wee bit out of control. It’s a cute little plot and has a cute little trailer featuring Olaf »
