Joanne Froggatt is best-known for her part as Anna Bates from hit period drama series Downton Abbey.

Actor Joanne Froggatt, who played maid Anna Bates in the popular period drama series Downton Abbey says she and her castmates are keen to reunite for the film but it would be very difficult to arrange.

Froggatt says the film making could be tricky as there are many people’s schedules which need to be considered, reports

“It’s been tricky. There has been a lot of goodwill from all of us, but logistically it’s a bit of a minefield. It’s very difficult to get all 22 actors together. But if we can, everyone would like to do it,” Froggatt told Radio Times magazine.

While the Liar star has been looking for work in America, she is not expecting to land a Hollywood blockbuster because she doesn’t think she has the right image.

“I’m not a big-budget Hollywood type. They want the model type, classically beautiful and I’m not,” she said.
