"Daisy will become one of 'Downton's' most prominent characters. She wowed producers in her audition and they are delighted to have secured such a brilliant young actress," a source told The Mirror. Look for the two to start a secret affair.

Lewis' other credits include "Doctor Who" and "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes' "From Time to Time." Request for confirmation from Masterpiece was not immediately returned.

Additionally, Paul Giamatti will guest as Harold Levinson, Cora's (Elizabeth McGovern) brother in the "Downton Abbey" Season 4 finale with Shirley MacLaine, who returns as Martha Levinson.

"Downton Abbey" returns to PBS on Sunday, January 5, 2014 with Season 4.
