It looks like we are going to see quite a few more handsome faces on the Downton estate in Downton Abbey’s upcoming fourth season. Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) surely has many love interests to pick from, as all three male additions to the cast seem to be viable options for her. After her husband’s death, Mary is on the prowl, and it looks like she won’t need to look too hard after all.
DigitalSpy reports that brand new stills from the upcoming season have been revealed, previewing Mary’s eligible bachelors, as well as a new main image reports NetworkedBlogs. Here is a run down of the three handsome lads who will be competing for Mary’s love and affection, based upon profiles constructed by DigitalSpy:
Played by Gary Carr is Jack Ross, Downton Abbey’s first-ever black character. He will get some attention from Mary after she see’s the jazz player perform during her visit to London.
Lord Anthony Gillingham
New character Lord Anthony Gillingham, a longtime friend of the Grantham’s, will show up at a party on the Downtown estate, which is thrown to lift Mary’s spirits.
Julian Ovenden will play another potential suitor for Mary, the “dashing aristocrat” Charles Blake.
This will definitely be an entertaining story line to watch unfold, as we can hope by the seasons final episode Mary will have chosen one of her three potential suitors. We wait impatiently until more information is released regarding the show’s highly anticipated fourth season.
