Young Maggie Smith’s Cheekbones Were As Sharp As Her One-Liners

To continue The Frisky’s transformation into All “Downton Abbey” All The Time, Check out this photo of a young Maggie Smith. Before she was “Downton”‘s Dowager Countess (not to mention Hogwarts’ Professor McGonagall) she was a film star in the UK, nominated for a BAFTA award in 1958 for “Best Newcomer” and acting steadily ever since. With her massive talent and those striking cheekbones, it’s not hard to see why. She’s 77 now, and, in our opinion, still stunning. [Old(er) Actors Who Were Hot When They Were Young]
