She plays Lady Edith on the ITV and PBS drama.

Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael has signed with APA, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively has learned.

As the upstairs-downstairs period drama prepares to air its sixth and final season (on the U.K.’s ITV this fall and on PBS in January), the English actress, who plays middle sister Lady Edith, now has joined most of her fellow series regulars in securing representation with a Hollywood agency.

Last year, Carmichael appeared in the Mia Wasikowska-starring adaptation of Madame Bovary, which premiered at Telluride. She made her big-screen debut in 2011’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. On stage, she starred in the 2012 revival of Uncle Vanya as Sonya, opposite Ken Stott, Anna Friel and Samuel West.

Carmichael continues to be represented by the U.K.’s United Agents and by Untitled Entertainment.
