There’s sure to be fireworks at Downton Abbey in the upcoming season, as it’s just been revealed there will be a new love interest for chaffeur-turned-gentleman Tom Branson.
After the death of his wife Lady Sybil during season three, Tom Branson, played by actor Allen Leech, has shunned romantic interests in favour of focusing on his new role as a dad to baby Sybil. But as the series opens on a new era and with Joanne Froggatt (Anna Bates) promising fans plenty of “new blood” and “shocks and surprises”, Tom is obviously ready to move on.
The new character, said to be a nanny for little Sybil, will be played by Brit actor Daisy Lewis who is certainly no stranger to cult British drama having already starred in Dr Who.
And with season three closing on the birth of Lady Mary’s first child and the untimely death of Matthew Crawley, we can’t wait to see what else will happen to the Grantham family when the new series hits our screens later this year.
