Alfred Nugent

Alfred Nugent

Footman

The awkward Alfred has mastered the finer points of being a footman, but made no progress in his courtship of Ivy. Unwittingly at the heart of the downstairs love triangle, Alfred neither reciprocates Daisy's dedicated affection nor comprehends why his friend, Jimmy, toys with the infatuated Ivy. As a talented cook, he finds it easier to prepare a flawless béchamel than to understand women. His ambitions may find more success in the kitchen than the heart.
