Downton Abbey star to visit Australia in November

Downton Abbey’s Allen Lynch will visit Australia in November for a promotional tour for the 4th season of the hit show.

Lynch who plays Tom Branson on the show will also be  at the Melbourne Cup on November 5.  “From an early age horse racing has been a major part of my life, from my grandfather’s tips to my mother’s own horses. The Melbourne Cup has always been spoken about in the same way as the Gold Cup, the 1000 Guineas and the King George. I’m very excited to be able to be there and witness it first-hand.” he said.

Season 4 of Downton Abbey got off to a roaring start in the UK last month, enjoying its best ever ratings for the first two episodes of any season.
In Australia, the series has consistently won its timeslot each year and was the #1 drama of 2011, the #2 drama of 2012 (behind Revenge) and in the year-to-date is the #1 regular drama of 2013

Downton Abbey will return to Seven in 2014
