Former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens has yet to catch any of the fourth season of the show - because he has been too busy working in the U.S.

The actor, whose character Matthew Crawley was killed off in the 2012 Christmas episode, is hoping to catch up on the period drama when season four debuts in America this weekend (05Jan14).

Stevens explains, "I want to watch it with the American audience... It will be fun. After all, I live in Brooklyn now."

The Brit is currently shooting Night at the Museum 3 with Ben Stiller.
