Jessica Brown Findlay fears for parents as flooding hits hometown

British actress Jessica Brown Findlay has been left fearing for her parents’ safety after severe flooding hit their hometown. The former Downton Abbey star grew up in the village of Cookham in Berkshire, England, which has been hit hard by the storms and rising waters which have devastated much of the country in recent days.
Findlay has now revealed her parents have been caught up in the disaster. Their house has so far remained unscathed, but the family’s friends are struggling.
During an appearance on U.K. morning TV show Daybreak, Findlay says, “No (they haven’t been flooded), they’re OK, but lots of their mates are (flooded). It’s, you know, two feet of water in one of their friends’ houses. It’s nuts. It’s insane and it’s not stopping.”
