Downton Abbey has managed to capture its fair share of reality star fans, including Audrina Patridge and Project Runway guest star Kristen Bell. But did you know that So You Think You Can Dance judge Adam Shankman enjoys his weekly dose of the Dowager Countess and Matthew Crawley? What did he think of last night’s Downton Abbey premiere?
Adam Shankman is a busy guy, what with judging on So You Think You Can Dance, choreographing the occasional episode for Glee and aiding in the production of several feature films. But every once in awhile, Adam likes to sit back and watch his favorite TV show: Downton Abbey. Such was the case last night, when the choreographer live tweeted through his reactions to the hit show’s season premiere.
The pre-Downton excitement began early, with Adam first tweeting his excitement last Thursday: “DOWNTON ABBEY!!!! So close, and yet so far… #sunday #addict.” Finally, when Sunday arrived, Adam once again let everyone know that he was ready for a great premiere. “HAPPY #DOWNTONABBEY day! (2 those who have seen, we who enjoy our watching traditions beg 4 no spoilers.) GONNA GET MY CRAWLEY ON! Yeehaw!”
The tweeting did not stop there. During the episode, the Downton Abbey addict admitted that he was “totally team Mary and Matthew. How would u blend their names? They’re already kinda done… Hmm.” In this tweet, Adam was referencing Mary and Matthew Crawley, a beloved TV couple that (spoilers ahead!) wound up at the alter during last night’s episode.
Adam Shankman’s always been an amusing guy and his Downton Abbey obsession makes us like him even more!
