More photos have been released of the upcoming fourth season of “Downton Abbey,” which premieres in just a few short weeks in the United Kingdom. Above is the traditional cast photo that accompanies every season — it’s weird not to see Matthew or Sybil, right?
Below, we have Lady Mary’s suitors. On the left is Tom Cullen as Lord Gillingham and on the right is Julian Ovenden as aristocrat Charles Blake. While it’s sad that Matthew is dead, we’re pretty excited about the prospect of Lady Mary entertaining new men.
Below that is Gary Carr as Jack Ross, a jazz musician and the first black character to grace the “Downton” set. We expect his handsome looks will not go unnoticed by resident party girl, Lady Rose.
