"I know we will be really close for the rest of our lives. Michelle and I drink in the same pubs. We like to go out dancing, too. It would make people laugh to see us because we don't care what we look like, but at the same time we think we look amazingly cool, which I'm sure is not true." Laura Carmichael is close friends with her Downton Abbey co-star and onscreen sister Michelle Dockery.
