Ethel Parks, Housemaid
"I want the best. And I'm not ashamed to admit it." –Ethel
Bright, attractive and ambitious, Ethel Parks is not content to remain an under housemaid, even in her new position in a far more prestigious house than her previous one. With an eye on the future, Ethel sees opportunity (while others see potential trouble) in Downton's conversion to a convalescent home for wounded officers.
