Quite unintentionally, this site became dedicated to the talented and surprising 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.

I am based in California.

 

The BBC radio program “Amazonia” takes place when WWI is winding down and the the Russian Civil War was just beginning. Rory Kinnear plays the real life English children’s author turned journalist Arthur Ransome who wants to save Trotsky’s secretary (played by Michelle Dockery) from the revolution. 
Listen for Michelle Dockery’s sweet Russian accent in this radio broadcast. Between this, “Uncle Vanya”, and “Burnt by the Sun”, she would have a well polished accent for “Anna Karenina”.
90 minutes total run time

BBC R3 - Garry Lyons’ ‘Amazonia, A Portrait of Arthur Ransome’
Directed by Melanie Harris
Broacast February 7, 2010


Arthur Ransome is best known now for translations of
Russian folk tales, and the Swallows and Amazons novels.

But once he was far better known for a scandalous libel
suit with Lord Alfred Douglas (Oscar Wilde’s ‘Bosie’),
and then for being overseas correspondent in Russia for
The Daily News, and then for The Manchester Guardian.

He was in Russia during the 1917 revolutions, and the
post WWI western interventions in Russia. His political
stance made him unpopular with the UK’s intelligence
services, who seem to have blackmailed him into doing
some work for them. At the same time he was posting
articles sympathetic to the Bolshevik’s.

This is some of the story.
