Michelle Dockery: There’s ‘Potential’ for a ‘Downton Abbey’ Movie
According to the actress, who played Lady Mary Crawley on the historical drama, she would definitely consider reprising her role again should they decide to bring the period piece to the silver screen.
“Downton Abbey was an incredible journey for six years and we were very sad to say goodbye, but it was the right time and it was very exciting actually leaving and going on to something like this and a whole new path in my career,” she told the Telegraph during an interview about her new show, Good Behavior.
“The thing that I miss the most are my cast members,” she continued. “But we are all still very close. I think there is potential for a film. That is something I would wholeheartedly consider, so we will see. It may not be over yet.”
Dockery, 34, also briefly spoke about dealing with the death of her fiancé, John Dineen, around the time Downton Abbey’s finale aired. Undoubtedly a difficult time to go through, the Golden Globe nominee said acting served as a “release” as she surrounded herself with loved ones.
“No one I would name because I am very private about my private life,” she shared when asked there was anyone specifically who had helped her at the time. “But friends and family see you through the most difficult times.”
