Later this year, the BBC are showing their own television film version of Henry IV.
Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley) joins the cast as Lady Percy in Part 1. Sound familiar? Despite taking the name of Claire Foy’s Upstairs Downstairs character, half-Irish Michelle has starred in this play before; as the Carrier in both parts 1 and 2 back at the start of her career in 2005.
The third series of Downton is currently being filmed and will air later this year.
