Fans of Downton Abbey were devastated when the period drama series came to an end. But, there is good news on the horizon as Downton favourite Jessica Brown Findlay, who played Lady Sybil Crawley in the series, is back filming another history project.

However, Jessica appeared to have swapped glamorous evening gowns for 1940s costume.

The actress was spotted filming scenes for her new film, which is called Guernsey. However, rather than shooting the movie in Guernsey itself, in the Channel Islands between England and France, she was seen filming in Devon on the British mainland.

Jessica was seen with the cast at the water as they watched a boat coming to shore. The movie is set just after World War Two and tells the tale of journalist Juliet Ashton, who is being played by another member of the Downton cast, Lily James.

Juliet decides to write about the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which is a book club which was set up on the island while it was under German occupation. The movie is based on the 2008 New York bestseller list novel written by Annie Barros and Mary Ann Shaffer.

The movie has ended up reuniting a number of the Downton cast, with Matthew Goode, who plays Henry Talbot, and Penelope Wilton, who plays Isobel Crawley, also taking part.
