Former Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery opened up in a new interview that she considers herself a widow after the frightful death of her fiancé John Dineen.
Michelle said in a new interview with The Guardian;
I refer to myself as a widow, yes. We were engaged, and married at heart, and so I do consider myself a widow.
The 35-year-old British actress further added, saying it helped her connect with her Good Behavior's character Alice.
That’s the first time I’ve said that, and it’s a bit of a relief to say so.

Michelle laid low in the months following John’s death but returned to work on Good Behavior, her first Television project following Downton, three months later.
Michelle also addressed the ongoing sexual misconduct scandal in Hollywood, which was surfaced after dozens of women came forward to put allegations against super-producer Harvey Weinstein.
Everyone’s talking about it. And I have huge admiration for those women who have come forward.
Michelle admitted that she had “heard rumors” about Harvey and had a brief meeting with him several years ago and had left “feeling uncomfortable” but that “nothing much happened.”
She also said that she thinks the ongoing movement has opened the “floodgates” and that things are changing in Hollywood.
I think that the casting-couch system — well, the couch should be burned. I just think something has to change. And this is the start of it.
