Downton Abbey Star Michelle Dockery’s Fiance Dies Aged 34

Downton Abbey Star Michelle Dockery’s Fiance Dies Aged 34.

Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery has been left heartbroken after the death of her fiance John Dineen who passed away on Sunday evening at  Cork’s Marymount Hospice on Sunday morning and had been ill for awhile.

Michelle who played Lady Mary Crawley on the hit show has been notoriously private about her relationship.  The couple are thought to have started dating in 2013 after being introduced by Michelle’s Downton Co-star Allen Leech who played Tom.


Michelle has only spoken once publicly about the relationship in an interview in September 2014. She said:

 “I have a wonderful man in my life from Ireland. We were introduced by Allen Leech. That’s all you need to know.”


John worked as as a Senior Director in FTI Consulting in London, is reported to have popped the question in February of this year.

A private funeral is to be held tomorrow in Cork.

Here at CelebMix our thoughts are with both Michelle and John’s family.
