What is going on in the career of Jean Marsh, who was so smashing years ago in Upstairs Downstairs?
—Rachel Carter, Hartford, Conn.

Marsh, 76, has reprised her Emmy-winning role as Rose, the prim and proper parlor maid, in the BBC revival of the drama series, which debuts April 10 on Masterpiece Classic on PBS. “It was a wonderful part,” she says. “I think Rose got into me as much as I got into Rose.” The actress co-created the epic saga of life in Edwardian England, which aired originally from 1971 to 1975. Upstairs Downstairs Complete Series: 40th Anniversary Edition will be released March 29 on DVD.
