Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery joins new Netflix original mini-series
Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery will play a lead role in Netflix’s upcoming original mini-series Godless.
Godless is the story of dangerous outlaw Frank Griffin, played by Jeff Daniels, a man who terrorises the Wild West in search of his mortal enemy Roy Goode, played by Jack O’Connell. Dockery will portray Alice Fletcher, the owner of a ranch in which Goode hides from Griffin.
Erin Brockovich and Ocean’s Trilogy director Steven Soderbergh will be executive producer for the series, with The Wolverine writer Scott Frank writing, directing and producing the mini-series along with Casey Silver.
Dockery is currently filming The Sense of an Ending, an upcoming British feature film based upon the novel of the same name by Julian Barnes. She will star alongside Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter and Emily Mortimer.
She will also appear in the upcoming American drama Good Behavior when it premieres on TNT later this year, playing con artist Letty Dobesh.
