Los Angeles - Gwyneth Paltrow wants a role in the British drama Downton Abbey.

The actress is a huge fan of the show and wants a role in the fourth season of the period drama, which is to air later this year.

A source told America's Star magazine: "Gwen just wrapped up Iron Man 3 and is so sick of blockbusters and wants to focus more on TV.

Third season set to air soon

"She adored working on Glee and told her team to get her on to Downton Abbey. She's been told on the downlow that Julian Fellows is 'thrilled' and fleshing out a cameo role for her."

The third season of the hit drama is set to air later this year locally on BBC Entertainment. Although no date has yet been confirmed, reports say that it might start airing in April.

While season three has wrapped up in the UK, the series has been renewed for a fourth season which will air later this year.
