Separated at birth?

[Harriet Sansom Harris and Phoebe Nicholls.]

I hadn’t planned to make two such posts in one day. Elaine and I thought that had to be Harriet Sansom Harris (Frasier Crane’s crafty agent Bebe Glazer on Frasier) playing Susan MacClare, Marchioness of Flintshire, in tonight’s Downton Abbey. But no.

Tonight’s show was a Christmas Special. Some Special. I have come to think of Julian Fellowes’s screenplays as bowling balls. The characters are the pins.

We just watched Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and I think Julianne Nicholson could be the daughter of either woman.

Yes, there’s a strong resemblance. JN also has some resemblance to the musician Inara George.
