Downton Abbey Adds More to its Cast! Meet the New Characters!

The Dowager Duchess might have some competition next season for interesting one-liners as PBS has announce that six new cast members are joining the series. Shirley MacLaine is also set to return for season 4’s finale as Martha Levinson, much to the delight of many fans (her tiffs with Violet were EPIC). So far, the series has been racking up the awards with nine Emmys, two Golden Globes, and the highly coveted Screen Actors Guild Award for the ensemble, the first time a British television show has walked away with this award.

The new cast and the characters are:


Tom Cullen

 as Lord Gillingham, an old family friend of the
       Crawleys who visits the family as a guest for a house party


Nigel Harman

 as Green, a valet


Dame Harriet Walter

 as Lady Shackleton, an old friend of the


Joanne David

 in a guest role as the Duchess of Yeovil


Julian Ovenden

 as aristocrat Charles Blake


Dame Kiri Te Kanawa

 as a guest who sings in the house

Well, my fellow Downtonians, do any of these characters appeal to you as the new season starts production soon? Or will you still be missing some of your dearly departed characters (RIP Matthew & Sybil)? (COMING SOON!) (COMING SOON!)
