Downton Abbey Star Blames 'Naivete' for Regrettable Nude Scene, Says She's Done Taking Her Top Off (NSFW)

It was a concern about being typecast that ultimately led Jessica Brown Findlay, AKA Downton Abbey's Lady Sybil Crawley, to exit in dramatic fashion from the popular series midway into the third season.

"My contract was ending and I was unsure about signing away another year," she recently told Radio Times magazine. "What scared me more was to keep going and then one day discover it was all I could do and wish I had pushed myself more."

But Findlay is also setting limits on how far she's willing to push herself, having reflected on things in her past that she would not have done had she known better.

Namely, her topless scene in 2011's Albatross (NSFW).

"To be honest, Albatross was naivete and not knowing that I could say no," she told the publication. "I had no idea what was going to happen and thought I was going to be shot from behind."

Findlay says she did learn one thing from her nude scene experience, and that is to "be honest and natural."

The 23-year-old tells other actresses not to stress out about their bodies. "I was drinking pints and eating burgers," Findlay said. "But actually, it's not something I would do again."

Before closing up shop for good, however, Findlay is giving fans one last look around by taking it all off for her latest historical TV series, Labyrinth.

The two-parter is set to air this weekend on Channel 4, but if you're only tuning in for noodz, you can skip all the talk and go straight to the bedroom by clicking here (NSFW, with bonus Katie McGrath from Merlin casting a sexy spell on The Paradise's Emun Elliott).
