Unicorn Wall Mural Will Be A Thing Of The Past And Here’s Why
Rob James Collier tends to get a bit befuddled back announcement Downton Abbey. On a contempo console he let fly with a adventure that Thomas had a unicorn obsession, and that in actuality his appearance had a unicorn mural in his allowance downstairs. Back Vulture interviewed him about the new division (which premieres Jan. 6 on PBS), we asked him about it and he angled bottomward on his declared one-horned subplot. He gave us so abounding added capacity on the Thomas/unicorn symbiosis (which he claims is on the cutting-room floor) that it canâ€™t advice accession the question: Is he absolutely badinage around, is he accident his mind, or will division four of Downton Abbey be set in Narnia? Below, his added fleshed-out annual of how Thomas would appear to apperceive the celebrated creature, absurd and tragic. Like back Lady Edith fell for Sir Anthony.

There was an angry queen who lives abreast Downton Abbey and she arena bottomward the horn so she could alive always and be aerial and beautiful.
“So we attempt all that, and they fucking cut it out of alternation three because it wasnâ€™t ‘relevant.’ Youâ€™ve got this admirable segue about unicorns never actuality used. Thomas corrective the creature, too! One accomplished bank of his allowance that you never see on the appearance is a unicorn wall. There was a admirable arena as well, it mimicked Ghost, area he was accomplishing the ceramics wheel, authoritative the unicornâ€™s arch to accord to the unicorn. As a gift. The unicorn was pissed off. He anticipation it was his big break. He said, â€śThey fucking cut me.â€ť He put so abundant assignment into it. It was all abaft the eyes. It was like Alec Guinness.”
