Sleepy this morning? New “Downton Abbey” pillow captures Maggie Smith’s likeness
You’ve seen her in the Harry Potter films play Professor McGonagall, and perhaps more recently you’ve glimpsed her in the PBS period drama Downton Abbey, but we suspect you’ve never seen the actress quite like this.
Downton Abbey appears to be experimenting with a new kind of merchandise which features an artistic rendering of Smith in character as the Dowager Countess of Grantham, which they are marketing as “a stylish statement that will liven up any room.”
But how well do you think this new pillow will sell? Is it something you would purchase to grace your living room or would you rather sleep on it? It seems to us that Smith’s staring face may make either use of the pillow rather stressful.
