Downton Abbey star Allen Leech denies Branson and Lady Mary romance Tuesday 12 Mar 2013 9:57 am (METRO)
Downton Abbey star Allen Leech, who plays Branson in the drama, has said there isn’t romance between his character and Lady Mary on the cards.
Rumours have been circulating that the pair will become romantically involved in the upcoming fourth series of the ITV show.
In the third series, both characters lost their spouses, with Branson’s wife – and Lady Mary’s sister – Lady Sybil dying early on in the season.
While it would be great for drama, I don’t think it would be right for those two [to get together],’ the actor told TV Guide.
‘As much as they respect each other, they come from very different worlds.’
The fourth series of Downton Abbey has begun filming and is expected to air later this year.
