ones to watch: allen leech from downton abbey
We can’t help but swoon over actor Mr Allen Leech – known as Tom Branson, the rebelious chauffeur in the TV series Downton Abbey, who elopes with one of the ladies of the manor. Here’s a view of the 31-year old Irish heart-throb [styled MrPorter fabulously] wearing Acne, Belstaff, and Maison Martin Margiela for the Journal, and a few words he shares about his character in Downton Abbey. details of what he is wearing below photo gallery.
Leech catches up with Peter Henderson for MrPorter Journal:
MP: You have just finished filming the third series of Downton Abbey. What can we expect?
Allen Leech: My character, Tom Branson, has run off with Sybil, they have got married and moved to Ireland. Branson feels trapped because he can’t go downstairs [with the other domestic staff] because no one wants him there anymore, and he can’t go upstairs because the family hate the fact that he has married Sybil. So trying to find an identity…
MP: Would you say there are any similarities between you and Branson?
AL. I’m not as political as Branson, I think I have less of a success rate than he does...
