Michelle Dockery Hints at Possibility of a Downton Abbey Movie
If you ask Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey has plenty of life left in it still. In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the actress who played Lady Mary in the long-running British television series alluded to the possibility that she may one day reunite with her former cast members for a Downton Abbey film.
"The thing that I miss the most are my cast members," she says of the show that ended its television run in December. "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."
In the meantime, Dockery, 34, has extended her career to American television, playing a con artist with an alcohol problem in the upcoming TNT series, Good Behavior.
She went on to say: "It was very fortunate for me that this came along at the right time. It wasn't a conscious decision to do something so totally different from Lady Mary but I was completely hooked on the script from the first page and I loved the complexity of the character."
"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," Dockery added.
Good Behavior is set to premiere on TNT later this year on Nov. 15.
