  • Shirley MacLaine joins the cast of 'Downton Abbey,' working on a set that might be haunted by cursed items from King Tut's tomb.

Boo! Shirley MacLaine joins Season 3 of “Downton Abbey” on Sunday, and as expected, she took a thorough spiritual inventory of the English mansion where the show was filmed.

“It was a fantastic experience,” she told the NY Daily News. “Highclere was haunted and the pictures came off the wall.”

Rad. It probably helped ignite the freakiness that the original estate owner was a financial backer of the King Tut excavation, and the “cursed” artifacts were once stored in the bowels of the manse.

“The energy of the castle, grounds, (its) past and the hauntings was inspiring,” she said. She may be bonkers, but she’s so darn cute.
