Michelle Dockery stars in "Downton Abbey" on PBS as Lady Mary Crawley, the Hamlet-like heroine, whose indecision and disastrous misjudgments form the central dilemma of the first season.

Trained at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Michelle Dockery began her career at the National Theatre in "His Dark Materials." In 2006, she was nominated for the Ian Charleson Award for her performance in "Pillars of the Community," also at the National. That same year she made her television debut in Terry Pratchett's fantasy comedy "Hogfather."

In 2007, she won second prize at the Ian Charleson Awards for her performance as Eliza Doolittle in Sir Peter Hall's production of "Pygmalion" at the Theatre Royal, Bath, which toured the UK and transferred to the Old Vic in London, and for the same production was nominated Best Newcomer at the Evening Standard Awards 2008. Also in 2008, she played Kathryn in Channel 4's "The Red Riding Trilogy" and played the guest lead of tormented rape victim Gemma Morrison in the BBC's "Waking the Dead." In 2009, she appeared in "Burnt by the Sun" at the National Theatre for which she received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Also in 2009, she starred as the lead character in a modernized BBC adaptation of "The Turn of the Screw" and was seen in PBS's "Return to Cranford." More recently, she played Ophelia opposite John Simm's Melancholy Dane in "Hamlet" at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
