Maggie Smith meets 60 Minutes

Maggie-Smith-maggie-smith-30743001-773-1024I was browsing around for more information about Downton Abbey this week and came across this 60 Minutes segment done at the end of season 3. They not only interview the elusive Maggie Smith but also, the writer, Julian Fellowes, and actor/director Dustin Hoffman who directed Ms. Smith in the movie Quartet (2012). The segment is worth watching in its entirety.  It inspired me to watch Quartet again. I hope you take the time to watch the interview (she seldom gives any) and that you enjoy it!

Maggie Smith meets 60 Minutes!


About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.

  1. I saw Quartet a few months ago – brilliant. Dame Maggie Smith knows how to give a performance.

      Yes. Everything about Quartet was brilliantly done — from the directing, the acting, the music, and the setting! There are a handful of actresses of which you can say a movie is worth seeing if only because they are in it. Dame Maggie is certainly one of them. Glad you stopped by!
