Jessica Brown-Findlay stars in "Downton Abbey" on PBS as Lady Sybil Crawley. Brown-Findlay finds a powerful present-day resonance in the character, explaining, "A young girl struggling with war, career, love, and family — the parallels with today are incredibly close."

Since nursery school, Jessica Brown-Findlay aspired to be a famous ballerina. After training for years, she was asked at age 15 to dance with the Kirov Ballet at the Royal Opera House in London for a summer season. Her dreams were shattered when a botched ankle operation ended her dancing career. Changing tracks, she got into a few acting classes and was spotted almost immediately by a casting agent.

Brown-Findlay portrayed a contemporary teen in the 2011 coming-of-age feature film, "Albatross," and recently reunited with Allen Leech from "Downton Abbey" in the British television miniseries "Black Mirror."
