LOS ANGELES (AP) — PBS is feeding the addiction of “Downton Abbey” fans with an online trivia graphic.

Among the tidbits: Jim Carter, who plays dignified butler Carson, takes part in charity bike rides worldwide, and Elizabeth McGovern, who is the show’s Lady Cora, is in a band called Sadie & the Hotheads.

The PBS graphic doesn’t address the fate of star-crossed lovers Lady Mary and Matthew (Michelle Dockery, Dan Stevens).

“Downton Abbey” is about an English estate’s family and servants in the early 20th century. It has proved a hit for PBS.

The second-season finale airs 9 p.m. EST Sunday on public TV stations.
