Dockery has been active in the entertainment industry since 2000.

To begin with, Michelle is the daughter of Michael Francis Dockery and Lorraine Witton. Dockery attended Chadwell Heath Foundation School, now Chadwell Heath Academy. The young woman was also a member of the National Youth Theatre, and trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama which she graduated from in 2004, before making her professional debut at the Royal National Theatre. In 2006, she received the Ian Charleson Award for her performance in “Pillars of the Community” at the National Theatre. Meantime she made her television debut as Susan Sto Helit in the television series “Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather” (2005). Her net worth was rising slowly.

The actress then appeared in “Burnt by the Sun” at the National Theatre for which she was rewarded as the Best Actress at the Olivier Award ceremony. In 2008, she played Kathryn in “The Red Riding Trilogy” and appeared in “Waking the Dead”. The following year Michelle was cast in the lead role of Anne in the television film “The Turn of the Screw”, but became famous playing Lady Mary Crawley in “Downton Abbey” (2010 – 2015), starring with Maggie Smith. This role brought her several nominations, including the Golden Globe, Emmy, Screen Actors Guild and Critics Choice Television Awards. In 2013, the entire cast of the series won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Cast in a Drama Series, leaving popular series as “Breaking Bad”, “Homeland”, “Mad Men” and “Boardwalk Empire” behind, potentially boosting Michelle’s net worth.

In 2014, she starred alongside Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore in the thriller “Non Stop” directed by Jaume Collet Serra, both praised by critics as well as becoming a box office hit. In 2015, she was in the main cast of the science fiction thriller “Self/less” by Tarsem Singh. Since 2016, she is in the main cast of the television series “Good Behaviour”, and in 2017 the actress starred in the drama film “The Sense of an Ending” by Ritesh Batra. Currently, she is working on the set of the drama series’ “Godless” and “Angie Tribeca”.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, through the actor Allen Leech she met John Dineen, who worked in public relations. They became engaged but John died at the end of 2015 of a rare form of cancer, which was diagnosed at the beginning of the year. Currently, the actress is single.

1Alabaster complexion
1I think the success of 'Downton' is partly because there are effectively 18 leading characters, all given equal importance, so it's enormously involving on many levels. But also, it's a new story. It's not like Dickens or Austen, where everyone knows the denouement.
2'Othello' was my first Shakespearean discovery. I was obsessed with drama at school, and I studied the play for my English GCSE. Desdemona is the part that everyone wants, but Iago's wife Emilia is the one I've always been drawn to.
3I'm not accident prone, really, but I was cutting something and sort of lost control, and it went through my big toe. There was a lot of blood and I nearly fainted, but its totally fine now.
4At the age of eight, I auditioned for 'The Sound of Music' and made it through to the third round, where we all stood in a row like the Von Trapp family and had to sing.
5The whole acting game can sometimes be a bit false, and you meet a lot of people in it for the fame - so there's nothing I love more than going back to Essex.
6My family keeps me sane. I try to talk to my mum every other day. After I get off the phone, I have a renewed sense of clarity, so I guess a problem shared is a problem lost. It's important to me to keep them close.
7I love singing live, actually. And I'm dying to sing in a role, whether it's in a musical or a biographical film about a singer. It's always been one of my aspirations.
8It's a bit of a history lesson, being an actor. I was in 'Burnt By The Sun' at the National, which was set in Stalinist Russia, so I discovered all about that. You learn so much as you go along.
9Downton Abbey (2010) has become this huge thing, and I really enjoy the success of it, but I sometimes find myself on the outside looking in, which is sort of a healthy way to look at it so you don't get too caught up in it.
10There's no particular role that comes to mind that I'd like to take on, but for me, it's about playing interesting characters and not just two-dimensional ones.
11Until I was 27, I'd maybe been to America once and, like, Ibiza when I was 18. That was it.
12Shakespeare's work is like a good song: you never really forget the main lines.
13People will consider me a part of their lives for however long Downton Abbey (2010) lasts. It's a lovely thing to feel as an actor.
14You can find a connection with any Shakespeare role you play.
15The way I see it, the third series of Downton Abbey (2010) is all about change and how each character adapts to those changes.
16My mum taught me always to see the funny side of things.
17It's great to have a home and everything else that comes with it.
18It's always fun to play dress up.
19It's old news, me and my accent, but it always seems to make headlines.
20In my twenties, I was a bit of a worrier; it bothered me what people thought of me, what job I was doing.
21I'm quite surprised at how out of control I can be on stage because, actually, I find I like to be in control in life. It's quite freeing, really.
22I'm not from aristocracy, or anything like that.
23I've had moments of thinking maybe I should go on Twitter. It's something that I've been shy about, and I've thought that maybe I should do it.
24I'm the youngest of three sisters, and my parents have always encouraged all of us to do whatever made us happy.
25You learn an incredible amount doing theatre, not just about to behave.
26I'd like to do something that involves music.
27I worked out; I moved 16 times from the age of 19, just hopping about from different flats, because I couldn't always afford to stay.
28I'm taller than most actresses, so most corsets tend to be too short in the body.
29When I was a child, I went to stage school three times a week in the evenings - singing, ballet, tap, modern and acting, and I loved it.
30I can be so blown away by story lines.
31A good friend of mine works at Oxfam and has been closely involved in the charity's aid efforts in Syria.
32I think my parents knew before I did that I was going to be an actress, because I was doing impressions of Margaret Thatcher at the age of four.
33I loved the 'Die Hard' films growing up and the 'Taken' movies. They're so entertaining, and I enjoy being on the edge of my seat.
34Being in the same scenes as Maggie Smith and Shirley MacLaine is something I will never forget.
35I wasn't an academic. I hated maths and science at school. I couldn't concentrate.
36I don't have to walk around in hats or find remote places to go for lunch! I don't get recognized that often.
37I don't get recognized all the time, but it tends to happen more in America, and people are so lovely when they do.
38Cooking can cure almost anything.
39I love discovering tiny streets.
40I just want a really varied career, and just to keep going, really.
41I think the first time I realized Downton Abbey (2010) was a hit was when I was sitting in a tea shop in New York and the couple next to me were talking about Downton Abbey (2010) and then they recognized me.
42For years, I was often afraid to speak up when I didn't fully understand a script. I'd tie myself in knots.
43The kitchen is the most important place in any house. Visit your family, and that's where you'll end up. Go to a party, that's where everyone congregates.
44I think some period drama can be quite alienating, but 'Downton' isn't. This is going to sound quite, um, pretentious, but someone said that it's like a soap written by a poet.
45I get so excited about reading a new script.
46If Shakespeare was around today I would ask him out to dinner. The only thing I don't like about him is the way he did his hair.
47I had dance training from a very young age, 3 or 4... It taught me how to present myself, about preparation and working in an ensemble, and it's something that carries with me to this day.
48I come from a very working-class background, so my family would have been downstairs in the past, as opposed to upstairs. People are often quite surprised to hear that, that I'm not actually posh.
49It is impossible to watch a Friends (1994) episode too many times. Phoebe is my favorite character. I used to play her songs on the guitar when I was a teenager. 'Smelly Cat' is very easy. It's only about three chords.
50Laugh at yourself - a lot. My mum taught me not to take myself too seriously.
51We take so many of our freedoms for granted nowadays - I can travel where I like, I can do any job I want - but I think chivalry has been lost a little bit.
52I think so often you can come out of drama school and get thrown in the deep end.
53I'm not on Twitter, but I am on Instagram and follow Lena Dunham and Usher Raymond.
54Silk scarves are my thing. I tie them to my handbag or thread them through belt loops or wear them in my hair. Never round my neck, though.
55I regret not learning to drive when I was younger.
56I just enjoy acting, whatever area - theatre, film, television.
57In the early '20s, with the war over, there was a period of celebration, and you can see it in the fashion.
58'Expect nothing and hope for the best' is my mantra. A drama teacher called Joseph Blatchley told me that, and it's the best advice I've had. If you keep an open mind and don't expect too much, then you won't be disappointed.
59Playing Isabella in 'Measure for Measure' pushed me to my limits. Janet Suzman was directing, and she was very hard on me. I went through phases of not liking her at the time, but I loved her for it in the end.
60I love cycling, but if I could find a way of building something above the streets for cyclists, that would be amazing. We need even more space.
61I do believe in one true love.
62The journey matters as much as the destination. By engaging in the moment on set, I've stopped rushing and now find pleasure in the collaborative process - the characters, the costumes - rather than worrying about the finished product.
63Shakespeare and his work will always be relevant. He wrote those pieces hundreds of years ago and we haven't really changed as humans, have we? We have to deal with love, honor and adultery now - people were the same then, too - that's what's so wonderful and powerful.
64My godchildren went to see Taylor Swift in concert and got to meet her. They literally ran toward her and hugged her, and it was amazing. I got big bonus points for it. I'll remind them when they're teenagers.
65I'm quite into the French way - simple elegance with just a suggestion of sexiness, nothing vulgar.
66I really enjoy singing, it's entirely different to acting because I'm just being myself.
67My dad worked all sorts of jobs when I was growing up and finally ended up as a surveyor; my mum delivers meals to old folk around where we live. We didn't have much money when I was growing up, but I had a very happy childhood.
68I want a house with a garden, but slap bang in the center of London. Next door to a sushi bar.
69I don't mind wearing a corset, it informs your posture, changes the way you move, you can't slouch.
70Shakespeare is renewed each time you see it or read it. I've seen 'Midsummer Night's Dream' so many times, and each time it's a little different, or a different line leaps out at me. It's like re-reading a good book over and over, always noticing something you hadn't seen the time before - and that's rare.
71In the first season of Downton Abbey (2010) we see the three sisters, and pretty much all they do is change clothes three times a day.
72Downton Abbey (2010) has become this huge thing, and I really enjoy the success of it, but I sometimes find myself on the outside looking in.
1Close friend of Downton Abbey (2010) co-star Laura Carmichael.
2Was engaged to Irish PR director John Dineen on Valentine's Day in February 2015, but he died from cancer 13 December 2015 just two days before Michelle's 34th birthday. The couple had been introduced by Irish actor Allen Leech. In the TV series episode Good Behavior: Beautiful Things Deserve Beautiful Things (2016) featuring Dockery, Dineen is accorded an "In Loving Memory" dedication in the closing credits. At the funeral in County, Cork, Ireland (16 Dec. 2015), Michelle performed her late fiancé's favorite song "The Folks Who Live On the Hill".
