Laura Carmichael stars in "Downton Abbey" on PBS as Lady Edith Crawley. Despite on-screen animosity, Carmichael enjoys a sister-like relationship with Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) and Jessica Brown-Findlay (Lady Sybil) during filming and off-set. Of Edith and Mary's rivalry, Carmichael says, "It's still very much there. It is still very painful between them. But Julian has exposed another side of the relationship, which I do think this hatred is tied to: an absolute bond of love that is so much more intense."

Laura Carmichael was working as a receptionist in a doctor's office and about to go on tour to Dubai with a production of "Twelfth Nigh"t when she got a call to read for the part of Lady Edith, her first television role. Now with two seasons of" Downton Abbey" under her belt and appearing with fellow "Masterpiece" alum Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock") in the feature film "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" (2011), Carmichael is enjoying the career for which she trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theater School.
