That’s why the desire for a "Downton Abbey" movie is REAL.

(Spoiler: If you're a fan, you’re going to want to keep reading.)

"Put it this way," he says, "there’s a lot of goodwill towards the idea, because there’s still certainly a lot of love for the program."

"I can imagine a world in which a film would happen," the actor affirms.


Now, if you still need something to fill the void until a film actually comes to fruition, a "Downton Abbey" exhibition opened in NYC at the end of last year -- and Hugh totally approves!

In fact, he even filmed some video -- in character -- for it!

"I have to say," he says of visiting the exhibition (which may move to other cities, according to the site), "I did get a little bit nostalgic."

"It’s beautifully done," he continues. "For those who followed the show, they would love it. They really would."
