Former Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay said in an interview that she regrets going topless in her motion picture debut in 2011's Albatross.

In the movie, her character pulls up her shirt to buy cigarettes.

"To be honest, Albatross was naivete and not knowing that I could say no," she tells the British magazine Radio Times. "I had no idea what was going to happen."

"I thought I was going to be shot from behind."

The 23-year-old actress appeared nude again in the V Series Labyrinth, but admits that may have been her last time she goes nude (for work, anyway).

"In Labyrinth, it is a very fleeting moment that we shot in one take, but I did find it very odd being naked ... but actually, it's not something I would do again."

Brown Findlay, who surprised fans when she left the hit PBS series after Downton Abbey Season 3, also explained her decision to exit that TV show:

"I was unsure about signing away another year," she said. "Leaving terrified me, and that's what made me want to. Being afraid and going into the unknown excites me."

"What scared me more was to keep going and then one day discover it was all I could do and wish that I had pushed myself even more."

"I'd prefer to fail and fall flat on my face."
