Lady Mary Crawley
"Dear Lord, I don't pretend to have much credit with you. I'm not even sure that you're there. But if you are, and if I've ever done anything good, I beg you to keep him safe." –Mary
The eldest of the Crawley daughters, the icily beautiful Mary has mellowed somewhat in the aftermath of a terrible secret and the heartbreak of her broken engagement with Downton Abbey's heir, Matthew Crawley. As war brings change, so too does her new suitor, the powerful self-made newspaperman, Sir Richard Carlisle.
