After two and half years together, Michelle Dockery, who is best known for her role as Lady Mary in Downton Abbey, lost her fiancé, John Dineen, to cancer.

Having been introduced by a mutual friend in May 2013, the couple began dating before becoming engaged on Valentine's Day 2015.

And while the public and press speculated about the upcoming wedding, only a select few knew that John had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer to which he eventually succumbed last December at just 34 years of age.

Refusing to discuss her fiance's death in any great detail, Michelle does, however, pay tribute to the individuals who helped her navigate the months which followed his passing.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Michelle credited loved ones for their support, saying: "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."

Giving an insight into her latest role – a petty thief in US drama Good Behavior – Michelle admits that the opening came at the perfect time as it gave her something to focus on after John's death.

"It was very fortunate for me that this came along at the right time," she explained while admitting that she considers acting 'a release'.

On the day of his funeral, Michelle described John as "my friend, my hero, my king, my everything" before singing The Folks on the Hill – John's favourite song.

Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery been left reeling after a devastating loss this week.

Her fiancé, Cork man John Dineen, is understood to have died in the county's Marymount Hospice on Sunday December 13 following an illness.

His funeral will take place in Cork tomorrow.

Michelle and John began dating in September 2013 after being introduced by their mutual friend, Michelle's Downton co-star Allen Leech.

The pair reportedly got engaged earlier this year, with Michelle's colleagues saying the actress had been excited to show off her ring during filming of the drama's final series.

Both Michelle and John were reluctant to comment on their relationship in the press, though the English star did open up somewhat about her romance last year.

"I have a wonderful man in my life from Ireland. We were introduced by Allen Leech. That’s all you need to know," she said in September 2014.

John is a native of Waterfall, Co. Cork and studied at UCC before completing a Masters in UCD in 2005. 

Our thoughts are with Michelle and the Dineen family at this time.
