Question

Who makes the most money on “Downton Abbey?”

Answer

For more established actors on set, a flat is just the beginning. Maggie Smith (the Dowager Countess) is worth an estimated $8 million. Granted, that’s after an illustrious decades-long career but her Downton paycheck probably doesn’t hurt!
