Dame Maggie Leaving Downton Abbey?

The Huffington Post is reporting that Dame Maggie Smith may be leaving Downton Abbey after Season 3, according to a story in London's Daily Mail. The newspaper says that Smith has asked writer Julian Fellowes to leave the show because she wants to "get back to the stage and big screen." Season 3 is filming now in England and will premiere in the UK in fall and in the US in January 2013.

Say it ain't so—the Dowager Countess is our favorite character!
