Downton Abbey star in talks with Potato Peel film-makers

DOWNTON Abbey star Michelle Dockery could be taking the lead role in the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Hollywood film adaptation.
Her publicist yesterday confirmed that the actress was in talks with the film-makers, but no deal has yet been signed.
Earlier this year, producer Paula Mazur confirmed they were talking to various actresses for the lead character of Juliet Ashton and she hoped that filming would take place this summer.
However, it was expected that just one week of the two-month shoot would take place in the island, as filming would take place during the summer season.
If Michelle Dockery is cast, Guernsey’s filming will have to work around her Downton Abbey schedule.
