Fiancé of Downton Abbey Star Dies

John Dineen, an Irish public relations professional and the fiance of Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery, has died, the Daily Mail reported.

Dineen died of a rare form of cancer, and Dockery had rushed back from the U.S. to be at his side.

The tragedy echoes of a plotline from the early seasons of Downton Abbey, when the husband of Dockery's character, Lady Mary, also passed away at a young age.
