Much like his popular character Mr. Moseley on the wildly successful BBC drama series "Downton Abbey" (2010-16), English actor Kevin Doyle used to feel like life was simply passing him by. A poor student who failed most of his GCSEs as a teen, the future actor was never quite sure exactly what he wanted to do with his life until deciding it was finally time to take control of his fate. Before long the stage was calling, and Doyle worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company in London. It wasn't until the up-and-coming actor's memorable appearance in the 1997 BBC drama "The Lakes" that he began to find his footing on the small screen as well. On the strength of that performance, Doyle managed to become a growing television presence with appearances in such Masterpiece productions as "Poirot" (PBS 1989-2013) and "Foyle's War" (BBC 2002-2015), with roles in such features as Johnny Depp's "The Libertine" (2004) and "Good" (2008) peppered throughout. By this point Doyle was certainly a face that television viewers had learned to be on the lookout for, though when he joined the cast of "Downton Abbey" as dedicated servant Mr. Moseley, his rising star blazed brighter. Though initially little more than an incidental character, Mr. Mosely was gradually propelled into the foreground after creator and showrunner Julian Fellowes and executive producer Gareth Neame took note of Doyle's capable acting and comedy chops. Following the death of his master on the series, Mr. Mosely would display an air of heroism that made him a breakout character, thrusting the actor behind him into the spotlight, and helping the series to win an award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
