cousin matthew crawley

remember when I said watching the downton abbey wedding episode was like the best thing ever? well I lied. obviously, meeting cousin matthew IN PERSON is the most awesome thing ever. I went to nyc to visit my friend kristin & we got tickets to see a play on broadway called the heiress, starring him, jessica chastain (from the help) & david strathairn (you know, the dad from the river wild). the play was excellent, especially since we moved from our balcony seats to some empty seats in the second row after intermission.  

afterwards, we hung around the stage door waiting eagerly for cousin matthew (yes, I prefer that to his real name, "dan") like teenagers at a justin bieber concert. we all screamed & jumped up & down when he emerged from behind the door & my camera flash was going off like I was a paparazzo. he was so humble & sweet & gave autographs & posed for photos until everyone in the crowded had seen him. his british accent was pretty dreamy & I even gathered up the words to tell him I was impressed with his american accent in the play. 

oh yea, & jessica chastain was also gorgeous & so incredibly sweet as well. here she is signing a program for my friend kristin. what a night! 


  1. What a fun evening, great pictures!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the show! I love stalking out the stage door at the end of performances :) I may or may not have gone back more than once when Denzel was on broadway! So much fun!

  3. BEST NIGHT EVER. I am still smiling over it and I love that this is your first post of the trip! ;)
