Downton Abbey: Get to Know Mary’s New Star Crossed Lovers
Let the battle for Lady Mary's heart begin! While we’re still mourning the loss of beloved Cousin Matthew (Dan Stevens), who tragically died in a car crash just moments after seeing his newborn son, it seems that his widowed wife Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) will be getting two new potential love interests for the fourth season of Downton Abbey. Joining the drama-filled estate will be aristocrat Charles Blake—played by Julian Ovenden (left), 36-year-old British actor who made his mark in West End productions across the pond—and Lord Gillingham, an old family friend who returns to the Abbey, which will be played by 27-year-old Welsh actor Tom Cullen (he starred in the mini-series World Without End). So, who will Lady Mary choose? Place your early bets in the comments below.
