Michelle Dockery has hilarious reunion with Mrs Patmore at the Emmys


Downton Abbey may have ended but she'll always be Lady Mary to some.

Michelle Dockery got back into character and struck a dignified pose as she was reunited with her former co-star Lesley Nicol, otherwise known as head chef Mrs Patmore.

The two actresses were at the Emmys when they treated fans to a hilarious photo, which will have called to mind past scenes.



"Some things never change – I may have been to the Emmys but I was still downstairs!" wrote Lesley

Lesley was pictured holding up a cup of tea to Michelle and jokingly captioned it: "Some things never change – I may have been to the Emmys but I was still downstairs!"

The actress then shared a photo of their actual reunion, of the pair hugging sweetly. "Well actually it was more like this!! #lovethisgirl," she wrote.

The two ladies looked lovely at the awards ceremony. Michelle stunned in a ruffled, strapless white gown that featured a waterfall skirt and sweeping train. She accessorised with a black mini leather belt.

The 34-year-old was also reunited with her former co-star Joanne Froggatt, who played Anna Bates in Downton.

Over the summer Michelle gave fans a fresh dose of hope when she hinted that viewers may not have seen the last of the period drama. Downton came to an end on Christmas Day last year.

When asked about the possibility of a movie, Michelle 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 thing that I miss the most are my cast members," she added to The Telegraph. "But we are all still very close."

As Downton was drawing to a close last year, Michelle was sadly dealing with the loss of her fiancé John Dineen, who died of cancer at the age of 34.

She had her nearest and dearest to lean on – "Friends and family see you through the most difficult times," she said – but acting, too, also served as a "release".

Michelle is set to star in new drama series Good Behaviour, which will air on TNT later this year.
