Michelle Dockery spent six years as the epitome of British high society playing Lady Mary Crawley in ‘Downton Abbey’, but the actress has now taken on a different role entirely, as a drug-addicted con-artist in ‘Good Behaviour’. But while she’s relishing in the change of role, Dockery says she may not be completely done with Lady Mary yet.

Speaking about ‘Downton Abbey’ to The Telegraph, Dockery said: “I think there is potential for a film. That is something I would wholeheartedly consider, so we will see. It may not be over yet.” The actress added that it was her fellow cast members she missed the most, but they are all “still very close.”

Last December Dockery suffered the devastating loss of her fiancé John Dineen, who died aged 34 from a rare form of cancer. While she doesn't want to speak at length about the private matter, the actress said that her family and friends had been helping her through the dark time following Dineen’s death.

“No one I would name because I am very private about my private life,” she said. “But friends and family see you through the most difficult times.” Dockery was also grateful for the “release” her role in ‘Good Behaviour’ gave her. In the TNT drama she plays a drug-addicted con-artist, a million miles away from her ‘Downton Abbey’ role.

“It was very fortunate for me that this came along at the right time,” she said. “It wasn’t a conscious decision to do something so totally different from Lady Mary but I was completely hooked on the script from the first page and I loved the complexity of the character."
