After earning cred on the British stage in plays like Pygmalion and Burnt by the Sun, Dockery became a breakout star of the ensemble upstairs-downstairs drama, Downton Abbey, for her portrayal of Lady Mary Crawley. She embodied the snobbish yet endearing persona of an aristocratic daughter who eventually learns that her privileged life must change with the evolving times. By the end of the show's six-season run, Mary had become one of the show’s most likeable characters, having navigated unexpected hardships along the way.
In the years since the beloved series ended, the actress has been shedding the pomp and circumstance and corsets of Mary’s world for that of Good Behavior. The TNT drama, which is in the middle of its second season, has seen Dockery explore a life of addiction, troubled motherhood and cons as Letty Raines. It’s an impressive
New York's Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, which opened for a limited engagement on Saturday, gives fans the opportunity for a fully immersive experience set inside the world of the historical period drama.

In celebration of the exhibition, castmembers Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt, Sophie McShera, Lesley Nicol and Allen Leech; executive producer Gareth Neame; and Kevin MacLellan, NBCUniversal's...
In this exclusive sneak peek from Wednesday’s Liar (Sundance TV, 10/9c), Laura (played by Downton Abbey‘s Joanne Froggatt) finally has Andrew (Forever‘s Ioan Gruffudd) where she wants him: immobilized and unable to protect himself from her wrath. In case you’re behind on the thriller, a brief catch-up: Laura and Andrew went on one date, but when she woke up the next morning,
“I’m finding it a little bit frightening how easy it is for me to understand this mother. I’m not sure
The British miniseries airing on SundanceTV isn’t so much a show about rape, but rather, what happens when someone reports a rape. What unfolds over the six episodes (which will draw to a “satisfying conclusion,” Froggatt tells Et) is scrutiny of Laura’s past as well as the night of the incident, a decision to go public that polarizes friends and family as the show’s anti-heroine becomes more and more unstable.
“I hadn’t seen a TV show tackle the subject
It’s a 180-degree turn from her Downton character, says Dockery, who in fact was offered the part just as Downton was coming to an end in 2015. “But what I love about Letty and Mary is that they’re both complex, deeply flawed women,” she says.
And like Lady Mary, who thawed substantially over six seasons, Letty is evolving. In this new season, having regained custody of her young son, Jacob (played by Nyles Steele), Letty aims to establish at least a semblance of domestic stability with her hired-assassin lover, Javier (Juan Diego Botto).
But shunning crime and settling
Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd) is a widowed doctor; Laura (Joanne Froggatt) is his teenage son’s schoolteacher. They meet for dinner, go back to her place, and things progress from there. But the next morning, Laura believes she’s been raped, and Andrew has no idea what she’s talking about.
It’s a premise theoretically drawn from the modern debate surrounding the question of consent, with the potential to explore whether or not miscommunication in these situations is truly possible. And for at least the first episode, viewers are left with legitimate doubts about… Well, not about who exactly is “right” and who is “wrong.
The six-part revenge drama begins as an unpromising — and, in the era of believing women, unappealing — tale of Rape Rashomon. She (Joanne Froggatt) says she asked him to stop and was pushed onto the bed; he (Ioan Gruffudd) says he never heard her say no and that she didn't budge, let alone run away, when he went into another room to retrieve a...
2017 Fall Preview: Et's Complete Coverage
Even though the period drama ended in 2015, this year can definitely be dubbed “2017: Life After Abbey.” And to think, all we care about is a Downton Abbey movie!

Dockery, aka Lady Mary, was one of the first cast members out of the gates with a decidedly un-Downton-like character, playing con artist and recovering drug addict Letty Raines on TNT’s Good Behavior. “I was very fortunate when it came along,” Dockery told Et. “I wasn’t
