Papermag was poking around on PBS' Downton Abbey website recently, when we noticed a video Q&A with actress Siobhan Finneran (who plays meddling maid O'Brien) and were struck by how glamorous she was in real life. This got us wondering what the rest of the cast looked like out of their 1912 frocks and waist coats, and, below, we've rounded up some off-screen versus on-screen photo comparisons for your viewing pleasure. (All we'll say is hello actor-who-plays-Mr.-Bates Brendan Coyle! We'd let you help us dress for dinner any day of the week.) Check out all the pics below.

P.S. Spoiler-ish alert: If you haven't seen any of season 2, you're about to meet some new characters. Also, this list does not include new season-three cast member Shirley MacLaine. You'll just have to guess what she looks like with a giant hat on.
