Here’s some new Downton Abbey Casting Scoop From the Daily Mail.




Downton Abbey is to introduce its first black character following a search for an actor to take on a new role. The hit ITV period drama is currently seeking someone to play musician Jack Ross as part of a storyline about race relations in the 1920s.

According to casting notes – which were sent out to actors’ agents earlier this month – Jack is “25-30. A musician (singer) at an exclusive club in the 20s.”

“He’s black and very handsome. A real man (not a boy) with charm and charisma”.┬áThe notes also state that whoever lands the coveted role should “ideally be able to sing brilliantly”.
