So I’m just to find a husband and get out of the way?
“As regards “Downton Abbey,” I immediately knew that there was more to the young, icy Lady Mary Crawley than her haughtiness. When a friend of mine ventured in a phone conversation that Mary was “so wooden,” I snapped her head off. That’s because I saw Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary, four years ago in London as Eliza Doolittle, in Shaw’s “Pygmalion” at the Old Vic. Ms. Dockery was the best Eliza I had ever seen on stage, investing that Cockney flower girl with a strength of will that made her eventual triumph over ‘enry ‘iggins inevitable. She was a natural aristocrat, waiting to blossom. That invincibility is also evident in her proud Mary, but there is also self-doubt and uncertainty that glimmer suddenly and unexpectedly. Ms. Dockery has adroitly flipped the emotional equation of her Eliza.” — Ben Brantley, NY Times Chief Theatre Critic (✿◠‿◠)
@themarycrawleyshow asked for Mary Crawley + Sass
❝Michelle and I are great friends and we just love working together. It’s almost easier because there’s no half apology afterwards. I can call her a slut and mean it, sort of thing, as I did in the first series. We really laughed that day because there isn’t any part of me holding back. We respect each other as actors and we really give over to that, and then fall about laughing.
Michelle Dockery is worried about… Jaime Lannister’s hand
I 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.
