Main Characters of Downton Abbey

  • Robert, Earl of Grantham played by Hugh Bonneville : 
The 'ring leader' of the estate, Robert is a kind man who watches over the manor and its inhabitants.
  • Lady Sybil Crawley played by Jessica Brown-Findlay:
Sister of Mary and Edith, Sybil is a kind hearted young lady who cares for the well-being of others and captivates us with her warm personality and beauty.
  • Lady Edith Crawley played by Laura Carmichael:
Sister of Sybil and Mary, Edith is the shy and lonely youngest sister. She seems to find herself in tough situations and works hard to make herself feel noticed. She does cause mayhem to the family, and may bring on a lot of unwanted attention... but whats a family without an evil little sibling?
  • Mr. Carson played by Jim Carter: 
Ohh.. the butler. In charge of all that goes on downstairs, Mr. Carson watches over the manor in a different way than the Earl of Grantham. A kind hearted fellow who tries to keep everything orderly, Mr. Carson is a not so proud Cheerful Charlie.. but we love him anyway!
  • John Bates played by Brendan Coyle:
Mr. Bates can not help but be loved by the viewers of Downton Abbey. He is a valet of Mr. Roberts and a very protective and sweet man who is loved and loves Downton Abbey. He faces a lot of troubles throughout his time at the estate, but such a great character mustn't give up!
  • Lady Mary Crawley played by Michelle Dockery:
Lady Mary is the sister of both Edith and Sybil and plays a major part at Downton Abbey. She has a cold personality, but can be very emotional. She seems to be the center of many conflicts, gossip and love relations.
  • Anna played by Joanne Froggatt:
The head maid who we so desperately adore! So sweet, kind and loving, Anna is a very lively character who keeps the spirits of Downton Abbey soaring, even though she herself may not be at the top of her game.
  • William played by Thomas Howes:
A poor servant, William always has the best of intentions. A hard worker and determined to win the heart of fellow servant, Daisy.
  • Thomas played by Rob James-Collier:
 Thomas is another cold hearted servant, fixed on scheming and his evil cowardly ways. He works under Mr. Carson, but treats everyone else very cruelly. 
  • Cora Countess of Grantham played by Elizabeth McGovern:
Mother of the three sisters, the Countess of Grantham overlooks the manor alongside her husband, Robert. The countess always lends a helping hand to anyone in need of it, and seems to be a very nice person, although her advice may not always be helpful.
  • Matthew Crawley played by Dan Stevens:
Future heir of Downton Abbey, the blonde Mathew Crawley is brave, sincere and loving. It is very clear he is very loved by all (almost all) at Downton Abbey, and of course his fans!
