‘Downton Abbey’ Star Michelle Dockery’s Fiance John Dineen Dead at 34

34-year-old public relations director John Dineen passed away on Sunday (Dec. 13) after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer — his actress fiance Michelle Dockery was by his side.

The Downton Abbey star cut her promotional tour for the show’s final season short to be with Dineen in Cork, Ireland.

The couple began dating in late 2013. Dineen was diagnosed earlier this year.

“The family is very grateful for the support and kindness they have received but would kindly request that they are left to grieve in private,” a representative issued on behalf of the actress and Dineen’s family.

Our thoughts are with them during this difficult time.
