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.
In Spring 2004, during her final year at the Guildhall School of Music & Trauma, Michelle Dockery played Isabella in Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, directed by Dame Janet Suzman. [X]
Two years later she would audition for the same part directed by Sir Peter Hall. Although Michelle didn’t get it, she was cast by Hall for Pygmalion in 2007. The rest as they say is history.
Janet Suzman is an old colleague of Peter Hall. In fact he was the best man at her wedding. [X] It’s likely she recommended Michelle to him on the strength of her performance at Guildhall.
