Michelle Dockery on the cover of Manhattan magazine’s March 2014 issue

On deciding to become an actress: 

“By 16 I knew I had more passion for acting. I never wanted to leave the drama department. I was always working on scenes or thinking up stuff to perform with friends, and I’m afraid some of my other subjects might have slightly suffered.”

On her first big budget Hollywood movie Non-Stop: 

“It was an entirely new experience—the film, living in New York and working in a studio where they pretty much built a plane.”

On her Downton Abbey character: 

“I love that she’s so complex. She’s very modern in that sense because she’s more than a strong woman: She’s witty, vicious even. She doesn’t suffer fools, yet she’s sensitive. She’s a mixed bag, and I enjoy playing those sides of her. I also love [that] she doesn’t apologize for who she is or what she’s done. She might confess a doubt to Anna [her trusted lady’s maid] in private, but in public? Never.”
