Actor Jim Carter, known better to millions of Downton Abbey fans as Mr. Carson the butler, is in New Hampshire this week to host a benefit for earthquake victims in Nepal.

Carter spoke with Keith Shortall on Tuesday’s Maine Calling about his role on the popular public TV drama series, now in its final season, and about the humanitarian aid organization WandAid that he created with fellow activist Linda Cruse.

Carter will appear Thursday night at the Music Hall in Portsmouth at a benefit for WandAid, which is currently focused on helping earthquake victims in Nepal.
