James Franco as James Franklin

A one-armed wounded American soldier (or so he says) who sets about seducing Thomas. He’s a mystery that most of the Abbey gets bored of very quickly, despite the fact that he refuses to leave the household even after his arm grows back. It is revealed in a season 3 cliffhanger that he’s actually a time-traveling performance artist from Yale University, which, again, doesn’t really interest anyone other than James Franklin.
