A source says, "Ed's so excited about becoming a dad." The report also suggests that Speleers, 26, has wed Macey in secret, as another source adds, "His mates were at a party... It seems like they have married in secret." Speleers' character was written out of the drama during this year's (14) series.
Frank, a bouncy young Border collie, has been causing mayhem behind the scenes for his master, Ed Speleers, who plays dishy footman Jimmy Kent, and is in trouble with butler Mr Carson for chewing Lord Grantham’s carpets.
‘I must look mischievous because she always smirks at me.’Ed’s keeping his cards close to his chest about what we can expect in the new series this autumn but says, ‘Jimmy has great ambition but he can be snide so there’s still so much to be explored with the character. ’He’ll have plenty of time to ponder Jimmy’s fate as he slogs around the marathon course tomorrow.
Actors Ed Speleers, of Downton Abbey fame, Narnia star Will Poulter and Game of Thrones actor Alfie Allen are in Miami, Florida shooting their new film Plastic but took a day off on Sunday to top up their tans.
‘He had bits of carpet dangling out of his mouth and I said, “Frank, you’ve ruined my career.
Hugh plays my boss, so you’ve blown it for me.” Frank just sat there and licked his lips while I scrubbed away the mud he’d spread around and pushed the sofa into a position that would hide the damage.Now everyone’s sending me up because I was acting like a real footman.’Between scenes, Frank also helped his master train for the London Marathon, which Ed is running tomorrow in aid of Pets As Therapy, a charity that arranges volunteers to take their own dogs and cats to visit people in hospitals, hospices and care homes.Ed says, ‘Before I got him everyone told me, “Don’t get a dog, you’re only 24 and it’s such a responsibility.” But I’ve grown up with dogs and I’m soppy about them.And perhaps if Frank settles down and shows he can take direction, he could be in line for a scene himself.‘We’re filming until August,’ says Ed, ‘so I’m hoping writer Julian Fellowes will find a way of casting him.’Frank, who’s seven months old, behaved brilliantly the first day Ed took him to work, but on the second day he chewed up the carpets in the dressing room trailer used by Hugh Bonneville, who plays the Earl.But he can do no wrong in the eyes of Mrs Patmore the cook, played by Lesley Nicol, whose own dogs – a Tibetan terrier and a rescue miniature poodle – have been very well-behaved when they’ve visited the set.
