Role: Edwin Jarvis
Jarvis is Howard Stark's butler, one of the inspirations for his son Tony Stark’s A.I. assistant in the Iron Man films, voiced by Paul Bettany. Edwin Jarvis will be a crucial ally in Peggy Carter's fight against evil and casual misogyny.
James on his character: A combination of “Q and Miss Moneypenny.”
Jarvis doesn't seem to be very flappable. In a crisis, he's actually pretty good. He's able to think fairly clearly. And he's also pretty funny. i mean, he's got a pretty wry sense of humor about everything, every situation that they're in. And I think that helps diffuse what is sort of a gathering storm around Peggy.
Plot: Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the ABC drama series stars Captain America’s Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt her a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert Strategic Scientific Reserve, Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.

Awards & Nominations
Hayley Atwell on Jarvis: I think it’s kind of… they’re forced together. He’s been told that he has to work with her and be available to her. But I think, from her point of view, she doesn’t need any help. But she needs someone who is in contact with Howard to help kind of run this mission. So they have this very witty banter back and forth where she’s constantly having to go, “Look, dude, I don’t need your help! I am fine.” But it’s a lovely dynamic between them because they’re both British. They both have that wit and that satire. Their language is a game of chess back and forth. It’s a great game that they play and I think they get tremendous enjoyment out of it. And their relationship grows over the season. They become very close. They also provide the comic relief of the season. You see the serious aspects of what they have to do but then you have these great moments of comedy between them. He becomes like her comic sidekick.
He's kind of employed as the middleman between her and Howard. And I think she resents the fact that Jarvis feels that he has to take care of her and it becomes very, very clear that she has to take care of him on many occasions. And that creates great banter between the two of them, who have a love-hate relationship toward each other but also a deep respect and affection.
James D'Arcy: There is an initial bond between Jarvis and Peggy because they're both English. They both come from the same background, culturally speaking, so they're able to speak in almost a sort of shorthand. And then beyond that, they quite swiftly fall into -- I don't want to say a sibling relationship - but they have a real banter together. They very much enjoy undercutting each other in a sort of humorous way. And I think that Jarvis surprises Peggy quite often.
James D'Arcy: We have fun when we're shooting, we have fun when we're not shooting; it's great.
Quotes from the film
Peggy: Are you trying to butter me up, Mr. Jarvis? Jarvis: Merely pleased to receive your call.
Peggy: Well you are faster than a train. Jarvis: How flattering.
Peggy: My landlady gave me an idea. Jarvis: Oh splendid, now if we can only chat with your butcher.
Jarvis: Actually, the death ray is accounted for. It's in Nevada, I believe,
Standouts in the cast are James D’Arcy as Howard Stark’s butler Edwin Jarvis, and Enver Gjokaj as S.S.R. agent Daniel Sousa. D’Arcy is hilariously stiff with a dash of sweetness, while Gjokaj’s hardworking everyman endears in mere seconds of screen time. Both characters find common ground with Peggy, and leave viewers hungry for further adventures -- www.hypable.com, Michal Schick
James D’Arcy is a model of amusing dry wit as Jarvis, Stark’s butler and his official liaison with Peggy. Jarvis believes in order above all things: Dinner at 7, “Jack Benny” on the radio at 8, to bed with his wife at 9 -- SFGate, David Wiegand
Jarvis is married, which seems likely to preclude the possibility of romance between him and Carter despite an obvious chemistry. While they’re both Brits, she’s the adventurer and he’s the buttoned-down butler who’d rather be in bed by 9 p.m. and make a soufflé for his wife than engage in Carter’s derring-do. Jarvis brings to mind Giles from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” albeit more fuddy-duddy -- www.communityvoices.com, Rob Owen
