Sea bass and champagne: Dinner with Joanne in London
  Met up again with Joanne Froggatt in London where she is currently filming the new TV series Liar in a role that could not be further removed from her portrayal of Anna Bates in Downton Abbey.
 We had dinner at Mosimann's in Belgravia after spending the day at Tollesbury Marina in Essex where Joanne was filming some scenes for the twisty thriller, which was written by the two brothers who wrote Missing, and looks like being another winner.
    The last time Joanne and I talked was 18 months ago after Downton Abbey finished and she told me she was moving to Los Angeles.
   Over a dinner of sea bass, champagne and chardonnay the other night she tells me she now has a home in Los Angeles as well as in London and she divides her time between the two, depending on where she is filming.
  "It's the best of both worlds," she says. "I've been renting a house in the hills in Los Angeles but now I'm looking to buy somewhere when I get back."

   Yorkshire-born Joanne, 36, who won the hearts of Downton Abbey fans around the world as Anna, has three movies awaiting release and Liar is sure to win her hordes of new fans.
  In it she plays Laura, who ventures back on to the dating scene after a failed relationship and meets up with Andrew, a renowned surgeon, played by Ioan Gryffyd. Their date has far-reaching consequences on each other and their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in a thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth.
