Quite unintentionally, this site became dedicated to the complex and eccentric Michelle Dockery. My aim is to provide fresh material and perspective for her fans.
In the 'Michelle Dockery Professional Archive' link below you will find the most complete collection of her screen performances on the internet.
Yeah Heather felt it was time for her to stop posting. All good things must end at some point, my blog included.
I really don’t know if Michelle has seen any of our blogs. My tumblr is not that big, so probably not. But thank you very much for the encouragement!
Actors like playing dramatic roles, they don’t go to drama school to learn how to act contented. Laura is extremely lucky in her career, playing an iconic part in a massive international hit and being well paid for it. She has a pretty awesome life.
I also find it hilarious people keep making ugly sister jokes about Edith and Laura kept showing up in amazing outfits and stunning photo shoots. I love seeing her turning it around. The only time I felt bad for her was that horrible Peter Hall outburst at Uncle Vanya.
I’m sure Laura wants things to work out for Edith in the end, but as Saint Augustine said “O God, make me chaste and celibate, but not yet.”
Her trials and tribulations are who Edith is. There are several more seasons to go, and it would be character death for Edith should everything just fall into place for her. DA is a very simple show really. There’s always a chance at happiness so long as you’re alive and trying. I think that’s one of the messages.
Don’t make me blush.
Thanks for the link, I’ll definitely watch it when I have time.
I don’t believe for a moment Edith is a punching bag. She’s the most relatable of the Crawley sisters. There are far more Ediths in the world than Marys and Sybils. Without Edith the aristocracy would seem to be made up exclusively of superwomen, which surely wasn’t the case.
Julian Fellowes created Edith as a high born Bridget Jones. She’s the underdog in high places, and I think she is one of the most memorable characters on the show. People loved The King’s Speech for much the same reason.
Ciroc vodka? You never know, Michelle used to do Kellogg’s Special K ads.
OMG I just realized Ciroc was a sponsor of the June 10th media event. P. Diddy’s involvement with Downton Abbey runs deeper than just his parody.
