‘Downton Abbey’ Season 5 Cast Photos Show Time-Jump, New Characters

PBS has released the first cast photos for “Downton Abbey” season 5, including stills of the new actors chosen to play Sybbie Branson (Fifi Hart) and George Crawley (Oliver and Zac Barker), who have been aged up a couple of years for the new episodes.

The Masterpiece Classic series also unveiled the latest image of the full cast in front of the titular stately home, including George and Sybbie for the first time. Other notable cast additions in season 5 include Richard E. Grant as art historian Simon Bricker, a guest of the Granthams, and Sue Johnston as Denker, who serves as lady’s maid to Maggie Smith’s dowager countess. And judging by the prominence of Tom Cullen’s Lord Gillingham in the photo with Mary, she may have finally chosen a suitor.
