A well-known actor in England, Julian Ovenden has appeared in numerous highly acclaimed miniseries. His good looks and killer accent (well, accent if you’re not English) make for a devastatingly attractive combination that has even notoriously icy Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) warming up to his character, Charles Blake.
Oh, and did we mention he can sing? Julian won two choral scholarships to attend university and originally planned for a career in music. Thankfully, he opted to act, too. He keeps his pipes in tune with appearances in shows such as A Christmas Carol: The Musical. Conclusion: Consider us total fans of Downton’s other Julian.
