from Downton Abbey costar Allen Leech’s wedding. uninhibited laughter, the kind that makes you throw your head back or grab your chest, is always a joy for me to see! Michelle Dockery, aka Lady Mary Crawley, is on the far left; Susie, Dan’s perfect match of a wife, is next; the bride, actress Jessica Blair Herman, is in the middle; Dan, looking very Matthew Crawley-esque, is to the right; and to the far right is Allen Leech, aka Tom Branson/the groom, enjoying a pint.
I can’t begin to describe to you how much I like this picture, so I’ll just describe who is in it instead. first we have Dan to the far right, in a neon graphic shirt making the face (minus the pointing); in front of him is Susie, looking adorable as always; resting his hand on Dan’s shoulder is Joe Keery, aka Steve from Stranger Things, in all his hipster-hobo glory; to his left is girlfriend Maika Monroe, Dan’s costar in The Guest, looking like a kickass modern day Sporty Spice; and then clear over on the far left (sorry all you people in the middle, who I don’t know) is Josh Gad, Dan’s costar in both Beauty and The Beast and Marshall, looking like he just stepped out of a Clerks remake.
this looks to be an outtake from the Off Camera with Sam Jones interview photoshoot, sans the black & white filter. I’m glad this one is in color. it’s warm, it’s sincere, it’s Dan.
