Is life imitating art for Michelle Dockery? It appears so, as the Downton Abbey star, who plays Lady Mary on the show, has been seen with a new mystery man in Venice last week. I guess since Lady Mary is being wooed in Season Four by eligible bachelors it only seem right that Michelle gets the same treatment in real life.
Apprently, Allen Leech, who plays Lady Mary’s brother-in-law on Downton Abbey, introduced John Dineen to Michelle Dockery. It seems the pair hit it off since she was photographed in Venice with the 31-year-old financial PR director.
Very little is known about the new mystery man in Michelle’s life.
An associate of Mr Dineen, who works at FTI Consulting, told the Daily Mail:
“John is also from Ireland and went to University in both Cork and Dublin before
coming to London.
“He is very private and softly spoken but he has really been taken by Michelle.
Allen is an old friend and appears to have played Cupid.”
This blogger did a quick google search and found John Dineen’s LinkedIn profile. It didn’t provide much new information (unless I upgraded my account) but it did have his “unsunglassed” picture for your viewing pleasure.
They do seem to make quite the cute couple and have that “new relationship” glow. (I’m jealous!!!)
Hopefully, Mr. Dineen won’t end up with the same fate as Lady Mary’s Mr. Pamuk or Matthew Crawley though.
Good luck, Michele and John!!! Downtonians everywhere are pulling for your relationship.
They already broke up. He was supposedly rather clingy and somewhat controlling.
