Grab the smelling salts! The Dowager Countess is going to faint when she sees her eldest granddaughter strutting around in a short skirt!
Michelle Dockery, who plays eldest Crawley daughter Mary on Downton Abbey, recently flaunted her super long legs at a press event, showing the world what she’s been hiding under Downton’s traditional long skirts.
Wearing a navy blue number with shiny embellishment that we’d love to have in our own closets, Michelle chatted up Extra at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Now we know Grandmama Violet would pass out; not only is Michelle showing skin, she’s in America to boot!
The 32-year-old actress is currently on a press tour for her new film Non-Stop. Co-starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore, the thriller features Michelle as a flight attendant, a far cry from her prim and proper place in 1923 England. See her pass out peanuts, open soda cans, and square off with Liam in a preview of the new film.
Although Downton’s fourth season just wrapped, look to see more of Michelle on American televisions in the days to come. Tonight (February 25), she’ll be stopping by Conan O’Brien’s late-night show on her non-stop press junket. Let’s hope for the Dowager’s sake she has a slightly lower hemline.
