Now this is a bit of unexpected news that warmed our hearts a bit.
It seems the fantastic Elizabeth McGovern , Cora, Countess of Grantham on our favorite show in the entire world ever, “Downton Abbey,” has a bit of a side career as a singer-songwriter with the band Sadie and the Hotheads, and her “Downton” co-star Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) likes to join her and her bandmates down at the pub to perform some jazz.
(That we would love to join them both at the pub is another story entirely.)
But now comes word that McGovern, who you might also remember from her turns in 80s hits “She’s Having a Baby” and “Once Upon A Time In America,” and Dockery are checking their corsets at the door to hit the studio … TOGETHER! The pair are recording an album!
“It’s going to come out later in the year,” McGovern told the UK Telegraph at a private screening of “My Week With Marilyn.” Dockery added, “It’s been so much fun. Elizabeth is a great songwriter.”
Our head just exploded.
