Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery seems to be having a good year. After being nominated for an Emmy, the 30-year-old British actress is in the running to star in some major Hollywood productions.
Video emerged of Dockery auditioning for parts in Moneyball director Bennett Miller’s new film Foxcatcher and Rob Marshall’s new adaptation of Into The Woods.
Unfortunately, the videos have now become password secured on Vimeo, but we do know that Dockey auditioned for the part of Cinderella in her audition for Into The Woods.
No word yet on which role she auditioned for in Foxcatcher but with Channing Tatum currently training for his part, we can probably expect more casting announcements for that film soon.
One audition tape we do have however is Dockery’s audition tape for Marshall’s other developing film, The Thin Man which is set to star Johnny Depp. Dockery auditioned for the part of Nora alongside some big names including Emily Blunt, Carey Mulligan and Ruth Wilson.
The project was shelved a few months back, so it is unclear if Dockery did in fact get the part of Nora, but considering that she auditioned for Marshall’s Into The Woods says that the director saw something he liked in her.
After some great work on Downton Abbey, it’s little surprise that the talented Brit is making her way into Hollywood. Hopefully these will be the first of many great roles that come Dockery’s way.
As always, we’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
