Downton Abbey: First look at Nigel Harman as Green

The ex-EastEnders bad boy is set to join Downton Abbey this Sunday as a manipulative valet

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, 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
