Michelle Dockery

Actress

Self-professed cockney girl Michelle Dockery grew up a world away from the lavish lifestyle experienced by her Downton Abbey character, Lady Mary Crawley. Born and raised in Essex, Dockery attended the local state school three times a week that was held in a nearby church hall. Had Dockery actually lived in the Downton era, she admits that her family would certainly have been below stairs rather than enjoying the luxuries above. Making her television debut in 2005, Dockery has starred in the likes of Cranford, Waking the Dead and Hogfather but gained national fame in 2010 when she stepped onto the Downton set.
