Michelle Dockery: I’m working on my bucket list

Michelle Dockery has already achieved two of her career ambitions; to work alongside Liam Neeson and Julian Moore.

The British beauty has wowed TV audiences for the past four years as Lady Mary Crawley in smash hit period drama Downton Abbey.

Her work on the double Golden Globe-winning series has led to more opportunities in film, and while shooting recent action thriller Non-Stop Michelle got the chance to achieve some career ambitions when she starred alongside two Hollywood heavyweights.

"Sky-diving. And I’d love to go to India or go on safari," she revealed to ASOS magazine when they asked what's on her bucket list. "It used to be to work with Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore! TICK!"

The fashion magazine posed a series of quick fire questions to the star, with Michelle revealing facts such as it's her best friend Simone who makes her laugh hardest and her scent of choice is Jo Malone Red Roses.

Non-Stop tells the story of an air marshal wrongly accused of high jacking a plane. Michelle plays air stewardess Nancy, with Lupita Nyong'o portraying her fellow plane worker Gwen.

"I finished series three of Downton and within a month I moved to New York and was playing Nancy. She’s a nice girl, so it was a change for me after Mary," Michelle laughed.

"[My best flying experience was when] we were delayed on the runway going to New York, and the flight crew were Downton fans so they asked us if we wanted to go into the cockpit. So many buttons! I was like, 'What happens if I press that?'"
