Strange how she doesn’t mention her being named as Official Blog Girlfriend of this humble blog. But she appreciates it anyway and I’m glad.
So Michelle, when are we going on our first date? I know a great little shooting range where I can teach you how to shoot a pistol. And if our first date goes well we can have ourselves a wonderful little weekend getaway.
Recoil therapy is a great stress relief for us acting types. Plus it’s good training for future roles which require firearms handling skills.
So official NC GunBlog Girlfriend, screen siren Michelle Dockery, is now 31 years old. That’s old, but only by idiotic Hollywood standards. I turn 43 here in a few days so by my standards she’s just now growing up.
Your publicist is still failing in his or her duties. I’m not getting regular updates about you, and I’m especially not getting any photos of you. Your publicist could be assured of getting a once a week mention of you in a major (well, kinda minor actually) and well-respected (I hope) English language sports related (shooting is a sport!) blog. This is crossover appeal territory. Getting your photo in fashion and “socialite” magazines is easy work. Getting your photo and info about your life in front of the men who might otherwise avoid your film and TV work is a coup of the first order. My email is on the page ”Blog Policies including Reciprocal Links and email address.” Please have the publicist email the photos with me along with a photo release. I won’t violate other people’s copyright.
Stop by here before Christmas. We can celebrate our birthdays together. If you’ll pardon my saying, you look like you could use a few slices of cake.
I haven’t pried to deeply into Michelle Dockery’s personal life. The only time I heard anything about her love life she was living with an architect in London and she kept him out of the public eye. Sounded cool to me.
Well I apparently missed the memo about that relationship being over. She started dating someone else and now that’s over too.
PS. Michelle, your publicist sucks. I’m still not receiving any promotional photos of you. I’m not going to steal copyrighted photos from other websites and post them. That’s just a douche move. If your publicist is willing to make sure that your failed relationship ends up in the major tabloids, at least get me some photos to post.
There are two things about you that are your big draw. One, obviously, is that you are very attractive. Second, your voice. Neither one works well in print so have your publicist send some photos. Better yet, come visit. We can make a video of me teaching you how to shoot. Proper firearms training would be very valuable in your future movie career.
I’m torn about this one. You see, I hate the British class system.
”Dockers” sounds very much like the sort of stupid upper class twit name you see when rich Brits get together in movies about the early 1900′s. I really hope that she isn’t as air headed as this interview makes her out to be.
Listen to the interview and if you’re sharp, you’ll hear that her accent changes. You see, the ”Received Pronunciation” (RP) accent that we associate with the upper class Brits isn’t Michelle’s actual accent. She’s from Essex. She said in an interview that being from Essex is roughly the equivalent of being from New Jersey.
In the interview Michelle talks about a parody of Downton done by a couple of girls and a doll house. Here is the first half of the first episode.
I love how they describe the characters, especially “strikingly beautiful, if bitchy and selfish eldest daughter” and ”irrelevant second daughter of the title character.”
but to he honest, it doesn’t seem all that unpredictable. Of course there will be problems with Matthew and Mary. The whole show is built around three things.
The cast-iron decency of Count Grantham
The crazy antics of the Dowager Countess
Problems between Mary and Matthew.
Here’s my problem. My biggest problem is that Michelle Dockery’s publicist sucks. I don’t like to violate people’s photo copyright. I’m only using this photo because it was “released by PBS” presumably for publicity purposes, and is therefore fair game.
Michelle, if you ever Google yourself and find yourself here, smack your publicist about the head and shoulders. Then explain to him or her that they need to be sending me photos of you that I can publish without violating anyone’s copyright. It’s “Michelle Dockery Monday” and I would appreciate if I could get enough photos to post this feature EVERY Monday, not just once in a blue moon.
