Lesley Nicol's is best known as Downton Abbey's Mrs. Patmore, the plucky and outspoken cook whose bossiness, particularly towards hapless assistant Daisy (Sophie McShera), is now as legendary as her unexpected quips.

Born to a mother who had worked in television, Lesley Nicol was a shy 16-year-old at St. Elphin's Boarding School in Derbyshire when she expressed a desire to go out and see the world - not, she recalls, to be an actress but to kiss boys.

She went to a technical college in Manchester to study for her 'A'-level examinations and, whilst there, she got involved with the Manchester Library Theatre. Whilst there, she was encouraged to apply for entry to London's Guildhall School of drama, from where she graduated in the early 1970s.
