Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery Recording Album!
Downton Abbey's divas are ready to sing!
Actresses Elizabeth McGovern and Michelle Dockery play aristocratic mum and daughter Lady Grantham and Lady Mary on the hit British series currently airing to boffo ratings on PBS.
And now, McGovern and Dockery are ready to collaborate on a wholly different project: an album of music!
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.
"It's going to come out later in the year," added McGovern, who plays the Countess of Grantham on the buzzed-about period drama.
