  • Is a distant relative of the English acting legend Ian Carmichael.
  • Supported herself while pursuing an acting career by working as a teaching assistant, nanny and receptionist.
  • Had to choose between Downton Abbey and a production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night in Dubai days before she won the part of Lady Edith; the audition process had whittled the potentials to her and one other actor at the time that she had to make the call.
  • Became good friends with fellow Downton star Michelle Dockery.
