    Michelle Dockery’s fiancé John Dineen dies at 34

    “Downton Abbey” star Michelle Dockery has lost her fiancé to cancer.

    John Dineen died of a rare form of cancer at the age of 34 on Sunday, reports the Daily Mail. Dineen was in hospice care in southern Ireland, adds the site.

    Dockery, 34, broke away from her show’s US tour to be by his side during his final days.

    “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 rep for Dockery told the Daily Mail.

    Dockery, who plays Lady Mary on the hit show, was introduced to Dineen by her co-star Allen Leech in 2013.

    She has always kept many details of her private life away from the spotlight, but in 2014 she told a magazine, “I have a wonderful man in my life from Ireland. We were introduced by Allen Leech. That’s all you need to know.”

    Dockery appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” on Dec. 10 but did not discuss her personal life.

    A funeral for Dineen will be held on Wednesday.

    Reminded me of Meryl Streep and John Cazale. I believe they were engaged or close to it. I wonder if their marriage would have lasted.

    How sad. 34 is far too young.

    Michelle Dockery Says at Late Fiance John Dineen’s Funeral: He Was ‘My King, My Hero’

    Michelle Dockery paid tribute to her late fiancé, John Dineen, on Wednesday, December 16. According to the Irish News, the Downton Abbey actress called Dineen “my hero, my king, my everything” while speaking at his funeral.

    Dockery, who was introduced to Dineen by her costar Allen Leech two years ago, also reportedly sang “The Folks on the Hill” in honor of her late love. The funeral was held at St. James’ Church in Ballinora, County Cork, in Ireland.

    As previously reported, Dineen, who worked in PR, died after battling a rare form of cancer on Sunday, December 13, at the Marymount Hospice in Cork. He was 34.

    "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,” Dockery’s rep told Us in a statement.

    Dockery, who flew from America to Ireland to be by Dineen’s side during his final days, was relatively private about their relationship. "I have a wonderful man in my life from Ireland,” she said last year, keeping mum. “We were introduced by Allen Leech. That's all you need to know.”

    Dineen would have been 35 on December 17.

    For an extra dose of sad, Dockery's 34th birthday was Tuesday, December 15. His funeral was wedged between their two birthdays.
