British actress Dockery, 30, told The Telegraph on Monday that she and 50-year-old McGovern (who became a Stateside star in the 1980s in films like She's Having a Baby and Once Upon a Time in America) are having "so much fun" recording together.

"Elizabeth is a great songwriter," said Dockery, who has performed with McGovern's band Sadie and the Hotheads.
