  2. I never would have recognized her from the picture…not even if you told me she was an actress on Downton Abby. My goodness, she looks different.

    This is cool! I’ve had a crush on her ever since Lovejoy!

    Can’t wait!

      I am pretty sure appearing on one episode of Bones is not going to end her on-going involvement in a series where she is a rather significant character, especially considering said series only has about 8 episodes per season. That leaves her plenty of time to do other work.
