Downton Abbey won’t be the only place fans can see Elizabeth McGovern this winter: The show’s star is heading on a tour with her folk-rock band in December. McGovern is the lead singer for Sadie and the Hotheads, which embarks on its first US tour on 4 December in Washington. The 10-date tour wraps on 14 December in Hartford, Connecticut. McGovern plays the role of American heiress Cora Crawley, the Countess of Grantham, on the hit Downton Abbey, which has its fifth season premiere on 4 January. The timing of the tour and the show’s return is a coincidence, McGovern said.
