PHOTOS: ‘Downton Abbey’: Brand New Pics From Season 5

Last month, actors from the show spoke with reporters during the PBS portion of the Television Critics Association Summer Tour about the return of the show.

Allen Leach (Tom Branson) and Michelle Dockery (Lady Marry) addressed the relationship between their characters.

"Their friendship has really grown and to think Mary couldn't bear the idea of Sybil and Branson," Michelle said.

"In [Season] 5, they definitely become closer because they become confidantes. They're after the same thing for Downton, which is sustainability," Allen added.

And while both are looking for love, it's "not with each other," Allen noted.

"Downton Abbey" returns to Masterpiece PBS on January 4, 2015.
