Gay storylines hit new Downton Abbey movie and HBO’s The Gilded Age
The brand new trailer for Downton Abbey – The New Era has dropped and there’s a hint of romance in the air for gay butler Thomas Barrow, all the while Julian Fellowes’ other creation The Gilded Age cracks out a full on bedroom scene in the latest ep.
Only the other day we brought you the sexy AF new Bridgerton season 2 trailer and it seems that when it comes to period dramas, it’s gay all the way. In HBO’s The Gilded Age (think Downton but set in NYC in the 1880s) one of the main characters has a suspiciously hot man on the side whilst he knows he will need to get married to a woman at some point.
The sequel to 2019’s Downton Abbey move is out on April 29 (UK) and May 6 (USA) this year and stars all the usual suspects (Maggie Smith on top form OBVS). This time around there’s a movie within the movie and is guest starring Dominic West who’s channeling some Rock Hudson vibes with a potential ‘rugged actor falls for butler’ arc coming our way.
