Did Gary Carr Turn Publisher Girlfriend Into Wife? Family & Status Now
Often frustrated by the black stereotype roles he got, English actor Gary Carr finally landed his dream role of a jazz singer in the hit ITV series, Downton Abbey and even got a chance to date one of the hottest actresses in the series.
Gary's real-life dating is no different than his onscreen counterpart as he enjoyed a healthy relationship with his girlfriend. Gary, who was once in a committed relationship, has his fans asking if he has married his longtime partner.
The Death In Paradise actor's silence has further raised suspicions if Gary is still together with his girlfriend.
Onscreen Dating; Turned Girlfriend To Wife Or Separated?
The first black character to have acted on Downton Abbey, Gary portrayed the role of Jack Ross, a jazz singer, in the fourth season of the TV series. The actor even got the opportunity to romance with the beautiful Lady Rose (Lily James) onscreen.

In the show, the couple first met at a club and started flirting with each other after which Jack gets invited to Downton.
The duo's biracial dating performance highlighted the diversity of Downton Abbey as interracial dating was rare during the 1920s-- the time where the show is set.

Although the relationship between the onscreen couple was controversial- as many viewers argued there were no black men in Europe during the 20s- there are no controversies when it comes to his off-the-screen dating life.
Gary, who was in a long-distance relationship back in 2013, is generally silent when it comes to his dating life and has provided only tiny details about his girlfriend.
Earlier, Gary, age 31, had mentioned that his girlfriend was a publisher and lived in Paris. He regularly visited his girlfriend in the city of France and even recorded some of his music during the conjugal visits.
But it's been nearly five years since he talked about his girlfriend and many are wondering if he married his girlfriend and changed the status from lover to wife.
Well, to sum up, there have been no reports of Gary getting married which probably implies that the actor standing at the height of 5' 10½" (1.79 m) is still a bachelor.
Furthermore, he hasn't revealed any intention of settling down with a wife, so he might not be in a hurry to get married and start a family. Also, he has not talked about his dating life with his girlfriend which raises the big question: Is the couple still together?
Unless Gary comes forward to talk about his married or dating life, there is no way to be sure about his relationship with his girlfriend or a possible wife.
