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

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!

Rupert Penry-Jones!!!


I think if I were casting this, I would be trying to find the likes of Jude Law, or Robert Downey Jr. (an American cousin from the American side of the family). Or someone stately, like Hugh Jackman. OK, there's three REALLY good candidates.
After seeing Hugh Jackman in Kate & Leopold, IF I WERE casting this, man, I'd give him a really long, thoughtful look!!!!


Daniel Casey

Hugh Dancy


Richard Gere or robert Pattison
