Downton Abbey's Butler Explains His Relationship With Lady Mary

Actor Jim Carter had a long and fruitful career before being picked to play the starched-shirted butler Mr. Carson, the leader of the staff downstairs on the British TV drama “Downton Abbey.”

Carter talked with Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti about his now signature role and his relationship with Lady Mary Crawley in the popular PBS series, which is coming to an end in the U.S. a week from Sunday.

Carter was in New England to raise money for disaster relief in Nepal. More info here.
