Mrs. Hughes

Mrs. Hughes

Housekeeper

Mrs. Hughes is cohort to Carson downstairs, running the female staff with no-nonsense discipline. And while she shares Carson's propensity for rigorous standards, Mrs. Hughes personally rejects his unwavering inflexibility in the face of change and progress. Though they frequently butt heads, these two authority figures -- aging in a great house with no other family to speak of -- may need to depend on one another as they face the uncertainties of the future.
