We knew Carson and Lady Mary had a close relationship, but not that close.

Michelle Dockery, who plays Mary on Downton Abbey, just had a cute Q&A with Life & Style

When they asked for her celeb crush, she answered, "Jim Carter, who plays Mr. Carson on Downton Abbey.” 

Aww! 

In terms of Downton stars, we'd probably go with Rob James-Collier (Thomas) or maybe Matt Milne (Alfred). But it sounds like Michelle also has a celeb girl crush. Asked to name someone with whom she’d like to work, Michelle answered, “Kristen Wiig. I watched her on Saturday Night Live before Bridesmaids, and she's one of the most talented actresses.” Keep it in mind, Hollywood! And on a somewhat related note, shouldn’t a Downton cast member be hosting SNL soon?
