New Delhi, Jul 16 (ANI): Lily James will not be reprising her role of Lady Rose MacClare for the ‘Downton Abbey’ movie. The 29-year-old actress confirmed the news herself in an interview. "My character Rose moved off to New York, so it would be farfetched to bring her back," James told People magazine."I would have loved to have come back for a scene, but for a movie, it can't be like a Christmas special and it needs to be a focused storyline," she added."There was no space for Rose. (But) I'm so excited for it (movie) - I'm going to be front row," concluded the 'Baby Driver' star. Lilly is currently in London for the promotion of her upcoming film ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’, the sequel of blockbuster ‘Mamma Mia’. ‘Mamma Mia’ will see Lilly portraying Meryl Streep’s daughter and will hit the theatres on July 20.
