'Downton' Actress Notes a UK George Trend

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Michelle Dockery warns against jumping to conclusions about how her character's baby on "Downton Abbey" and the British royal infant ended up with the same name.

George proved the name of choice for the fictional boy born to Lady Mary on "Downton" and the real one in line to be the king of England.

Dockery called it an "amazing" coincidence, but said the drama's baby was named before Prince William and his wife, Kate, picked George for their son.

And while Dockery has heard that William and Kate are fans of "Downton Abbey," she doesn't suspect that it inspired their choice.

"Downtown Abbey" returns for season four in Britain in September, followed by its airing on PBS next January. Dockery was promoting the show Tuesday while visiting Beverly Hills, Calif.
