‘Downton Abbey’ adding characters

It was announced Friday by “Downton Abbey’s” makers – Masterpiece on PBS and Carnival Films – that three new cast members are joining the show in Season 5.

British actor Richard E. Grant will join the cast as Simon Bricker, who will visit the wavering estate as a guest of the Crawleys.

It’s a world Grant is downright familiar with, demonstrating his footman skills in 2001’s “Gosford Park,” which was penned by “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes.

Also getting in the upstairs/downstairs mix are Anna Chancellor (“The Hour,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral”), who joins in a guest role as Lady Anstruther, as well as Rade Sherbedgia (“Eyes Wide Shut,” “24”), who will play a Russian refugee.
