Downton Abbey Season 4 Scoop: Who is Lord Anthony Gillingham?

by at . Comments

MAJOR DOWNTON ABBEY SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading right now if you wish to remain in the dark about a significant Season 4 plot twist...

Mary in Her Gown

As previously reported, Dan Stevens has left the British sensation, bowing out after the Christmas special that recently aired in England and which left viewers stunned over the death of Matthew Crawley.

But Mary will only be mourning the loss of her husband for so long, TV Line reports, as the series is seeking a good-looking thirty-something actor to come on board as Lord Anthony Gillingham, a character who will debut on Downton Abbey Season 4 and court the new mother.

Moreover, producers are already considering Gillingham to play a role on Season 5. Sounds like things will be getting serious!

The description is rather vague, of course, but got any casting suggestions for Mary's new love interest? Submit them now!

Jim Sturgiss; Hugh Dancy; Eddie Redmayne; Alexander Fehling (although he would have to learn to do a British accent). So many from which to choose!!

why cant we see the return of an admirer of lady mary's in the first series. Evelyn napier. He was really nice. had him down for lady sybill but the gorgeous chauffeur won the mday. He would be perfect for mary because of his honesty and would be truly sympethetic and would definitely love her for ever.
