Downton Abbey Star Michelle Dockery Engaged to Jasper Waller-Bridge Six Years After her Fiance Died of Cancer

It’s been six years since the death of her fiance. Now Downton Abbey star, Michelle Dockery appears to have healed her broken heart – and revealed her engagement to Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s brother.

The 40-year-old actress, who played Lady Mary Crawley in the ITV drama, and Jasper Waller-Bridge made their happy news public yesterday with an announcement in The Times.

It read: ‘The engagement is announced between Jasper, son of Michael Waller-Bridge of King’s Lynn, Norfolk, and Teresa Waller-Bridge of Battersea, London, and Michelle Dockery, younger daughter of Michael and Lorraine Dockery of Gidea Park, Essex.’

Last night Waller-Bridge’s father told the Daily Mail: ‘We could not be more delighted!

‘We have had a very happy time getting to know Michelle over the last few years and she’s an absolutely delightful person. We couldn’t be happier for them both.

‘Michelle will be a wonderful addition to the family and we are certain that she and Jasper are going to have a very joyful marriage and life together.’
