Laura Carmichael is thrilled that Beyoncé watches 'Downton Abbey'.
The 28-year-old actress and her co-star in the show Michelle Dockery, 34, find it "surreal" when they get compliments from "really famous people" on the red carpet at award shows, but were amazed when they found out their favourite singer is also a fan.
Laura shared: "We've been on lots of red carpets together and to the Met Ball more than once, which was amazing and surreal because all these really famous people, like Mick Jagger, Bruno Mars, Marc Jacobs and P Diddy, were coming up and talking to us.
"I'm a huge Beyoncé fan, but the first time we went and I saw her, I was too nervous to approach her. The next time, Michelle (Dockery) literally pushed me forward and Beyoncé was so sweet and pleased when I told her how much I'd enjoyed her show a few days previously in London."
To which Beyoncé replied: "I really like your show."
And the actress still gets "giggly" when she thinks of her the superstar and her husband Jay Z tuning into the show.
She told Stella magazine: "I have a feeling someone told her who were. But still, Michelle and I get giddy imagining Beyoncé and Jay Z settling down on the sofa to watch 'Downton'."
