The Downtown Abbey actress was engaged to the financial pr consultant, who sadly passed away in December of last year after a battle with a rare form of cancer.

The 34-year-old has remained notoriously private since his passing however, in a recent interview with The Sunday Telegraph she revealed that her nearest and dearest helped her through the tough time.

She said,“No one I would name because I am very private about my private life. But friends and family see you through the most difficult times.”

She has a new starring role.

Michelle admitted that acting is a form  of ‘release’ for her, so her new starring role in Good Behaviour came at the right time – even though it’s a far cry from her role as Lady Mary in Downtown Abbey.

She said, “It was very fortunate for me that this came along at the right time. It wasn’t a conscious decision to do something so totally different from Lady Mary but I was completely hooked on the script from the first page and I loved the complexity of the character.

We can’t wait to see her star in Good Behaviour!
