London: Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal says she would love a part on the ITV period drama `Downton Abbey`.

The `Secretary` actress said she is not sure what kind of character she would play on the show which also stars Michelle Dockery, Maggie Smith and Hugh Bonneville, reportedly.

"I love Downton. I would totally love to be in it. But I don`t know how I would fit in.

"There is this parlour game where people say who they would be and a friend said she would of course be Lady Mary. She said I would be the cousin who sleeps with everybody! A rich English playgirl!," she said.

The 36-year-old actress is set to make her television debut in the eight-part drama `The Honourable Woman`.

"I chose this because of the script. I had never read a script with a woman like this. I thought I was going to trust it. It is such a scary thing (the Middle East) for most people to talk about that I think people are hungry for ways to sit and think about it. I have never been more proud of anything I have ever worked on."
