I just want to say, to everyone freaking out that Michelle knows about tumblr: she knew about this blog before this article. I have no idea how long she’s known, but as I’ve mentioned before, I brought it up to her at the Downton Screening and she told me she’s seen it. So who knows what the cast have and have not seen, but it’s nothing new, so stay calm guys! Because the cats been out of the bag for a while. lol!
this isn't a question. But it is a quote from the LA Times. 'And along with the obligatory Facebook page and Downton groupies are fan-generated blogs like F--k Yeah Michelle Dockery, which proclaims itself “a celebration of all things Michelle.”' OMIGOSH. Congrats. This gives me hope that my blog can someday be mentioned in the newspaper. HAHAHHA. NOT LIKELY. But I'm so happy for you. *flailing fangirl moment*
Thank you so much! I know! It’s crazy!
And you know what? I never thought in a million years that this blog would get a mention like that! So you never know! =)
“She’s really a very down-to-earth girl,” he says. “Not the person you’re going to see falling out of a nightclub steaming drunk. Yes, there are now people out there who spot someone from Downton Abbey and say it’s worth stopping and taking their picture, but Michelle herself is still very much feet on the ground.”—Dan on Michelle (x)
Do you have any plans to work in the States, at some point?
Yes, I’d love too. I really would love too. I love America and I hope that the success of Downton Abbey may open some doors for us. I’m actually not available at the moment because I’m doing a part in a Joe Wright film. He’s doing an adaptation of Anna Karenina, which is another period piece. I have some lovely scenes to do with Keira Knightley.
Have you seen the Julie Christie version?
No, I haven’t. I should watch it. It’s a really interesting project, so I’m looking forward to working on that.
Can you do an American accent?
I can, sure.
Did you have a back-up plan, in case acting didn’t work out?
Music. I think I would’ve gone into singing. I would’ve been a music professional, but nothing academic.
I am having quite an emotional moment right now. FYMD has been mentioned in LA Times! I never thought when I started this blog that something like this would happen. But this, along with Michelle actually knowing about the blog, is way more than I ever expected. I am so happy about this, words cannot express.
oh christ did you know that THIS blog was mentioned in an article about Michelle? *fangirl-screaming* sorry, thought I'd let you know in case you didn't. *pats you on back* you are officially famous as the first tumblr Michelle blog. congrats. :D
WHAT????? OH MY GOD! I did not know this!! Thank you for telling me!
And just another reminder, if you have a Downton blog that you would like me to add to my links page, please message me and let me know. As I’ve said, it can be a blog about Downton Abbey, any character, actor, couple, etc. It’s just something I like to do to keep all the awesome Downton blogs accessible to everyone.
