She may yet win a fourth a “Downton Abbey” movie is purportedly in the pipeline. "You’re rooting for them but you don’t always approve of their behavior,” Dockery recently told the New York Times of the multifaceted characters she likes to play. “Yet you understand their predicament. It’s about playing a character that is more than just one thing, as we all are. And we’re seeing more and more female roles that are multifaceted, with vulnerability, humor.” Dockery, who appears in TNT’s “Good Behavior,” co-stars in the big screen adaptation of Julian Barnes’s “The Sense of an Ending,” alongside Emily Mortimer, Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, and Harriet Walter, which is playing now in select theaters.
