(Newser) – This seems right in character somehow: Maggie Smith, who plays the sharp-tongued Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey, tells CBS she has never watched the show. "Never?" asks Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes in the interview that airs Sunday. "No, I haven't watched it," she answers, as recounted at Today.com. She promises, however, to do so once the series is wrapped up. "It's frustrating," she explains. "I always see things that I would like to do differently and think, 'Oh, why in the name of God did I do that?'"
