I remember visiting this website once...
It was called ‘Downton’s Matthew was originally going to end up with Sybil, not Lady Mary – British Period Dramas
Here's some stuff I remembered seeing:
star Allen Leech has revealed that the show’s most iconic coupling nearly never happened.
The Irish actor, who played Tom Branson in the hit period drama, has confirmed that Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley were never originally going to get together.
writer Julian Fellowes’ original plan for the series would have seen Matthew going out with a different sister.
The actor also revealed that Tom was only meant to be in three episodes!
Ultimately, the character of Tom Branson outlived both Sybil and Matthew.
creator Julian Fellowes recently admitted that he “toyed with the idea” of Lady Mary having a romantic relationship with Tom.
