Godless centres around Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels), a notorious criminal that terrorises towns across the Wild West.
Griffin is hunting down his former partner turned enemy Roy Goode (Jack O'Connell), who is hiding out on Alice Fletcher's (Dockery) ranch and in the quiet town of La Belle, N.M. which is mysteriously made up entirely of women.
'The first thing we all did when we arrived was to go on cowboy camp,' Michelle recalls of her time on set.
'I remember when I shot a gun – the adrenaline was crazy. On Downton Abbey we had the shooting parties, but the women just stood back and wore a nice outfit and assisted the men.'
'People are calling it a feminist western. It was a joy to work with so many women.'

Freida Pinto also stars in the Vogue shoot, with her shot featuring a retro '70s vibe in keeping with her new drama Guerrilla.
The Slumdog Millionaire talent has been shooting the Sky miniseries alongside Idris Elba, with the six-part series centering on a couple, Jas and Marcus, whose 'relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London.'
'I have to admit, I think the Brits had it right way before the Americans when it came to TV. I grew up in India watching British television and it was always intelligent and always entertaining… It felt like coming home,' Freida tells Vogue of working again in British TV.
