Sophie McShera stars in "Downton Abbey" on PBS as the kitchen maid, Daisy, whom she admires as much as audiences do. McShera says, "I love her! She is so open and honest and naïve. She is also really funny, I like the fact that people can relate to her character and her relationships with people both upstairs and downstairs. She has a great relationship with Mrs. Patmore. Even though she's her boss, it's like a mother-daughter relationship."

Sophie McShera has been acting professionally since
she was 12, when by chance she was sent along with four other girls to London to audition for "The Goodbye Girl." She had spent the summer watching the American television show "Saved by the Bell," which helped her pull off an American accent for her audition. Before she knew it, she was on stage at The Palladium in London and touring the country. Afterwards, she went on to perform in theater in the West End and had several small roles on British television including a recurring role in "Waterloo Road" and appearances in "Doctors" and "Emerdale."
