Leslie Goddard returns to portray Margaret Powell, a kitchen maid and cook who worked in several stately English homes in the 1920s. Powell’s 1968 best-selling memoir Below Stairs was a key inspiration for the television programs Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs. Goddard shares stories about the work it took to run a wealthy household in this era and the eccentricities often found among employers, revealing the glamour of these lavish households, a small army of servants toiled around the clock, bound together by hard work and a necessary sense of humor.
