Throwing herself into work has been a good distraction for Michelle Dockery following the tragic death of her fiance.

The former Downton Abbey star looked in good spirits as she filmed scenes for new TV series Good Behavior in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Dressed in a leather biker jacket and jeans, the 34-year-old smiled at her co-stars and crewmembers as they took a break between scenes.

Keeping busy: Throwing herself into work has clearly been a good distraction for Michelle following the tragic death of her fiance

She was left heartbroken in December 2015 when her fiancé John Dineen died following a battle with a rare form of cancer.

 

After taking time off to mourn, Michelle resumed her acting work on her new TV show in late March. 

 

Just over a week ago, Michelle was pictured for the first time since her partner's death on location for the movie wearing a red wig.

Set to grip viewers, Good Behavior follows Letty's journey as she embarks on a mission to derail a hitman from his job after she's just been released from prison.

Meanwhile, back in December Michelle paid an emotional tribute to her fiancé and sang his favourite song at his funeral a day before what would have been his 35th birthday. 

During the funeral, Dockery told the congregation: 'Whether in his work or his personal life John was extremely loyal. It was clear that when John was in your corner he was there.

'I was honoured to know John. To love him and be loved by him. He was my friend, my King, my hero, my everything. We celebrate him, we honour him and we will miss him.'
