PaperMag has collected some off-screen images of all the actors who play major roles in Downton Abbey…because it’s almost impossible not to be curious what they really look like compared to the more stuffy (in a good way, of course) characters they all play on-screen.

Here are 5 of them…

Mr. Bates, played by Brendan Coyle

Anna, played by Joanne Froggatt

Mrs. Hughes, played by Phyllis Logan

Sarah O’Brien, played by Siobhan Finneran

Thomas, played by Rob James-Collier
