In May, we learned that Gary Carr joined the cast of Downton Abbey as a jazz singer, making him the first black major character on the British period drama. But now we have our first look at Carr in action. 

A photo of Carr on set reveals that his character will be spending a bit of time with Rose (played by Lily James). Rose inflused Downton‘s third season with a bit more youthful energy, as she introduced our stuffy family to the wild parties of the Roaring ’20s. From the looks of things, Rose will continue to push boundaries — and likely cause mischief and mayhem — when the show returns for Season 4.
