​生平

<tabber> |-|背景=

背景

黛西的生日在剧中没有透露,但是可以肯定1912年的她十分年轻。 黛西有着艰难的童年。她来自自工人阶层中最低、最无足轻重的末端。但是她在十岁之前接受了免费的义务教育,因此可以读写并做简单算术。[1]

|-|第一季=

​第一季

黛西是在厨房协助帕特莫尔太太的帮佣。她的工作还包含早起并唤醒其他仆人。[2] 她负责每天点燃并清理壁炉,但是被要求做一名庄园里的透明人。

起初黛西对托马斯·巴罗很有好感,但是科拉流产后托马斯恶劣的反应使她的爱慕转移到了一直被她所吸引的威廉身上。 |-|第二季=

第二季

威廉依然非常在意黛西。他很生气,因为她父亲不准他服兵役并参战。黛西安慰他说,他的父亲只是太爱他了,所以才会这么做。黛西告诉威廉,她讨厌看到他如此失落;为了鼓舞威廉,她轻轻地吻了他。威廉陷入狂喜,同时问她“这是不是意味着你将成为我的女孩?“,黛西被吓到了。当时黛西并不是真的爱威廉 ,她觉得他们的关系发展的太快了。因此当威廉前往战场之际向她求婚时,她十分犹豫。 帕特莫太太注意到了黛西的犹豫,很担心她会拒绝威廉 ,告诉黛西说:“ 不要让一个心碎的威廉上战场”黛西有些不情愿地答应了威廉,盘算着在战后打破婚约。威廉问黛西要了一张她的相片,这样他在战场上就有牵挂了,黛西满足了他。威廉失踪后,黛西十分担心,去请求伊迪丝·克劳利小姐调查一下威廉的情况(因为马修·克劳利,唐顿的继承人也失踪了)。伊迪丝询问黛西威廉是不是她的男友,黛西否认并表示所有仆人都喜欢威廉。

威廉从战场上回来休假时,试图同黛西像爱人那样沟通,可是黛西并不这么对他。威廉返回了战场,受了重伤,以至于医生都认定他将死于这致命伤。威廉的父亲 一开始并不明白儿子的命运,相信他会康复。威廉被送回了唐顿庄园威廉请求黛西现在就嫁给他,这样在他去世之前,黛西就可以得到烈士遗孀抚恤金,他也了结了自己的心愿。黛西试图推脱,但是梅森先生帕特莫太太最终说服她与临终的威廉结婚。仆人们与格兰瑟姆老伯爵夫人参加了他们的婚礼。黛西一直陪着威廉,直到他在婚礼后六七个小时左右离世。对于让威廉误认为她爱他的行为,黛西非常愧疚,想要向梅森先生坦白,但是帕特莫太太告诉她不能那样做。格兰瑟姆老伯爵夫人让她认识到,她其实是爱威廉的,只是她不知道罢了。 黛西逐渐与梅森先生走近了,梅森先生告诉黛西,威廉的哥哥姐姐都夭折了,母亲也离世了。他们从此以父女关系相处。

罗莎蒙德夫人同女仆肖尔小姐圣诞节时拜访唐顿。肖尔小姐开始让黛西产生了一些想法。她积极评价黛西在厨房所做的一切,说她在伦敦完全可以成为一个主厨,或者厨师。不幸的是,肖尔小姐的建议和态度使黛西(在约翰·贝茨因谋杀自己的妻子被判有罪的同一天)抱怨自己的处境,这使她与帕特莫太太发生了不快。

但是,在和她的公公梅森先生谈话之后,黛西承认她之前听取了错误的建议,向帕特莫太太要求升职并如愿以偿。艾薇接替了她的位置。

|-|Series 3=

Series Three

Daisy at first does not get her promotion (in part due to the estate's financial problems) and becomes angry. Thomas convinces her to go on strike, but Mrs Patmore ignores her. Daisy gets over it and goes back to work.

When Mary finds out that Lavinia had written to her father before she died, Mary tries to find out who posted the letter. Daisy reveals she did it, that Lavinia gave it to her one day when she came in to make up the fire.

When she does get promoted, she is jealous of the new kitchen maid Ivy Stuart. She also falls head-over-heels for new footman, Alfred Nugent, who is pursuing Ivy.[3] Daisy also pays another visit to her father-in-law, Mr Mason. She learns he wants to name her as his heir, and asks she move in with him so he can teach her how to run the family farm. She does not give him an answer yet, though she has admitted she never imagined she would be leaving service.

Series Four

In February 1922, Ivy and Daisy both receive Valentine's Day cards and are unsure who they are from. Jimmy hints that Ivy's is from him and asks her to go out to the pub with him. Because of this Daisy thinks that her card was from Alfred, who she has a crush on, and that Ivy's card was from Jimmy. Mrs Patmore asks Alfred to tell Daisy the truth, that he was the one who sent the card to Ivy. After he does so Mrs Patmore tells Daisy that it was she who sent Daisy the card. Mrs Patmore had an idea that Alfred would sent Ivy one and didn't want Daisy to feel left out. Daisy is clearly upset but tells Mrs Patmore that she may not have a follower but at least she has a friend.

Daisy starts to use an electric mixer, which Mrs. Patmore does not trust, saying new technology eventually will take away their jobs. Later, when she knows Ivy and Jimmy are together in the boot room, she tells Alfred where to find Ivy without telling him Jimmy is there. When Alfred begins to consider leaving Downton to pursue his dream of becoming a chef, Mrs Patmore tells Daisy it might be for the best, since Alfred never returned Daisy's feelings.

Despite not wanting Alfred to leave Downton, Daisy helps him to improve his cooking before he goes to The Ritz for his course. However, Alfred did not receive a job offer and Daisy was relieved he was not leaving afterwards. But then Alfred is offered to replace a candidate who dropped out, and Daisy is hurt again. She lashses out at Ivy, especially after the latter speaks of Alfred's goodness after Jimmy made an advance on her, since Ivy wanted Jimmy instead of Alfred.

Alfred later visits and at one point proposes to Ivy, who rejects him. Daisy is more furious than ever, and takes another trip to her father-in-law's (at Mrs Patmore's suggestion) to avoid seeing Alfred for the last time. Mr Mason however advises her to go back and part friends with Alfred. He also restates his hope that one day she will come to his farm permanently one day.

Daisy returns with a basket present for Alfred, which Mr Mason made. She admits to Alfred she loved him but that has gone and it is time for both to go their separate ways. Alfred himself apologizes to Daisy and regretfully admits he was a fool who could not see her love and truth as he was blinded by his infatuation for Ivy. They agree to be friends forever. Mrs Patmore later tells Daisy she has never been prouder of her.

In the summer of 1923, she receives a unexpected invitation from Ethan Slade, valet to Lady Grantham's brother Harold Levinson. Apparently Harold is fond of Daisy's cooking, and the offer is made for her to go back to America and work for him as a cook. Ethan is also primarily motivated by an attraction to Daisy. Daisy however declines. Ivy then becomes interested in the offer. However, as she later reveals to Mrs Patmore, Daisy was happy that a man was interested in her and that the excitment would probably last a year.

|-|Series 5=

Series Five

Daisy wanted to better herself and tells Mrs Patmore that she wants to be grown up, responsible and an adult and orders arithmetic books to educate herself (feeling that if she is indeed going to take over her father-in-law's farm someday that she must be able to manage accounts), but she is struggling. Mrs Patmore and Mrs Hughes supports her, whereas Mr Carson does not. Sarah Bunting, being requested by Mrs Patmore to tutor Daisy in her studies, this helps Daisy and Mrs Patmore made sure that Daisy's studies does not clash with her job schedule. Daisy immediately begins to improve, Bunting remarking that she will do very well with arithmetic. </tabber>

性格

黛西是一个谦卑、并且相当单纯的女孩, 但是对所有人都很热心大方 (虽然,对待艾薇时她表现出了嫉妒、渴求权力的一面)。尽管她常常被帕特莫太太使唤、斥责,即使她有时是被冤枉的——帕特莫太太真得很关心黛西。

黛西也是一个浪漫的女孩, 曾经喜欢过托马斯艾尔弗雷德,同时她也吸引了威廉·梅森伊桑·斯莱德
