I first became aware of Jim Carter when he starred as Philip Marlowe’s father in BBC’s 1986 adaptation of “The Singing Detective.”

Since then, despite his obvious distractions – a passionate love for cricket and skiffle music – his career has gone from strength to strength.

Film appearances have included ‘Brassed Off,’ ‘Shakespeare in Love,’ ‘Heartlands,’ ‘Bright Young Things’, ‘Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason,’ ‘Ella Enchanted,’ ‘The Thief Lord,’ ’102 Dalmatians,’ ‘Keep the Aspidistra Flying’, ‘Richard III,’ ‘The Madness of King George, ‘‘Black Beauty,’ ‘Blame It on the Bellboy,’ ‘A Private Function’ and ‘Flash Gordon.’

Amongst his varied television work, he has appeared in ‘Lipstick on Your Collar’, ‘Tube Tales,’ ‘Blue Murder’, ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel,’ ‘Midsomer Murders,’ ‘Trial and Retribution’, ‘Hornblower,’ ‘Dalziel and Pascoe,’ ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’, ‘A Year in Provence,’ ‘A Dangerous Man,’ ‘Precious Bane,’ ‘Lost Empires’ and ‘The Way We Live Now,’

My portrait is of Carter in his most widely known role as Mr Carson, the head butler in “Downton Abbey”.
