Just read an interview in today’s Telegraph with actor Brendan Coyle, who plays Mr. Bates in Downton Abbey, and he’s single and available. He says, “I’m going to be 50 soon. I’m single, I’m looking for something meaningful. By the time you’ve been single for quite a long time, you can get quite specific about what you can and can’t put up with.” Link follows, but warning: the interview includes a major spoiler for North American audiences.
