The Chronicles of Downton Abbey
An Interview with Jessica Fellowes
"I cannot thank you enough for what you did for our library- you delivered so very much more than we ever bargained for! You let me navigate you through the very crowded reception and could not have been more gracious with our guests. Your presentation to the crowd was both informative and amusing; you thoroughly charmed them. I have been bombarded today with emails and text messages telling me how 'brilliant' we were for arranging to have you speak!"
"Jessica Fellowes was a great success and Downton Abbey fans filled our Great Hall—everyone from college students to older community members. The audience really enjoyed the extra details and insights she provided, and her wit and warmth as she answered questions, signed books, and posed for pictures. And the bookstore ran out of books! One of her graduate student hosts wrote: ‘I felt like I was meeting with an old friend that I have not seen in years—she was just that personable!! And her talk was funny!’ Thanks for helping make this happen. Everyone—and I do mean everyone—appreciated your hard work!"
"We had a fantastic time with Jessica Fellowes! She is a wonderful speaker and our guests were incredibly pleased with the program. Her talk was the perfect length for our audience and she was very gracious in her answers to their questions. She also posed for many pictures. Personally, I found her to be very warm, easy-going, and a lot of fun to be around. Thank you for helping us make this program a success. I look forward to working with you again in the future."
"Jessica was a delight to work with and did a beautiful job with her presentation! Our clients absolutely loved the stories she told about the show’s creation and real-life inspiration for the characters. She signed books for over an hour and a half and was gracious to take photos with guests. Thank you so much!!!"
