Meet Lady Mary Crawley, family photographer.

It's almost time for Michelle Dockery and the rest of the Downton Abbey cast to say goodbye after six seasons. But first, the actress, 33, who plays Lady Mary in the beloved British period drama, will get as many pictures as she can for posterity.

The Golden Globe and three-time Emmy nominee is documenting the final days of production in a series of photos that she is tagging #LastDaysOfDownton.

So far, she has been focusing mostly on the off-screen talent, including producers and crew who've worked behind the scenes to make the program, which premiered in 2010, such a success.

Hugh Bonneville Grateful and 'Amazed' That Downton Abbey Lasted Longer Than One Season

Originally posted 03/27/2015 11:00AM

Though the show's massive international success could hardly have been anticipated, Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville is somehow "amazed" that the award-winning show went beyond its first season – as was everybody else involved.

"Those who follow the show might remember at the end of [season] 1, there was a slightly odd feeling because some of it was wrapped up in case the show never returned and some of it was led to pen in case it did – so, there was no guarantee the show was going to continue," Bonneville, 51, told ITV's Good Morning Britain.

Romance, Scandal and that Secret Baby: What to Look for in Downton Abbey's New Season

No meth labs. No superheroes. No steamy sex scenes. So what exactly is it that's got me – an avowed avoider of most things period, British and cozy – hooked on Downton Abbey?

As Season 5 kicks off (on PBS at 9 p.m. Sunday), I think it's the show's sense of human decency – amid rapidly changing times and trying circumstances – showcasing the Granthams' (and most of their circle's) ability to maintain stiff upper lips along with soft hearts.

Season 5 is a quiet but pleasurable one – nothing truly major happens, and that's just fine. After the devastation of World War I and, closer to home, the sudden death of Lady Mary's husband Matthew Crawley back in Season 3, there's enough tragedy still reverberating. As the characters all consider the next steps in their lives, here are some highlights of the new season (mild spoiler warning):

Why Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery Should Win an Emmy

Originally posted 08/22/2014 04:05PM

She began the fourth season of Downton Abbey in deep mourning over the sudden loss of her husband. But the spark deep within the heart of Michelle Dockery's character, Lady Mary Crawley, couldn't remain buried for long.

As the episodes went on, she found her way out of the darkness, and as series creator Julian Fellows says, she began "entertaining the notion that she could fall in love again."

Watching Dockery, 32, who's nominated for the third straight year for outstanding lead actress in a drama series at the Emmys, move from crushing sadness to believing in the possibility of a happy ending (all without losing her caustic wit) was more than a little inspiring.
