Look out, Thomas. Downton Abbey is getting a new bad boy.
This Sunday’s episode sees the arrival of ex-EastEnders actor Nigel Harman as Lord Gillingham’s manipulative valet Green.
Speaking to RadioTimes.com, Harman said: “This man is incredibly charming, to the point where he’s too good to be true – and that’s what it turns out.”
“I think Dennis (Harman’s character in long-running soap EastEnders) maybe had redeeming qualities, even though he was violent and a murderer, whereas I think this guy doesn’t have redeeming qualities.”
Sounds ominous, no? Apparently most of Green’s scenes are with Bates and Anna, too, so the happily-married lovebirds had better watch out…
Downton Abbey continues on Sundays at 9:00pm on ITV
