Michelle Dockery: Downton Abbey means everything to me
Michelle Dockery doesn't want 'Downton Abbey' to end because she'll feel incomplete and lost without it
Michelle Dockery doesn't want 'Downton Abbey' to end.
The 31-year-old actress - who plays Lady Mary Crawley in the ITV hit drama series - admits that she will feel lost and incomplete if the award-winning programme ever came to a close because she dedicates so much of her life to it.
Speaking in an interview with Harper's Bazaar magazine, she said: "There's a part of me that doesn't want it to end, because I love it so much... and once it's all over, I'm sure there will be a period when I feel slightly at a loss.
"It's like this love affair that I have with my job."
Lady Mary Crawley has become a big hit with both UK and US viewers, but the brunette beauty insists she hasn't taken fame too seriously, which has allowed her to remain level headed.
She explained: "It's very easy in this business to take things a little too seriously or yourself too seriously, and I grew up learning how to laugh at myself."
The full interview appears in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar, on sale from July 4th. Also available as a digital edition.
