The 34-year-old fashion designer and Erdem Moralıoğlu were desperate to star in an episode of the popular BBC British drama after they visited the theatrical set and riffled through the costume cupboard, including Maggie Smith’s fur collection.
Speaking about the creative masterminds trip to the theatrical set, Laura – who plays the role of Lady Edith Crawley in the drama – told Town and Country Magazine: “Erdem when through the clothes and was digging through all the stuff; he wanted to see Maggie [Smith]’s furs.
“He and Christopher wanted to be extras.”
And the ‘Marcella’ star believes the pair enjoyed exploring because she thinks Erdem and Christopher’s lifestyles are “very similar” to the Crawley family in the program.
The flame-haired beauty explained: “It was really fun to show them around because I think their worlds are very similar. Erdem always had these incredible sets that tell such a story. It’s very theatrical.”
