Last night, Carey attended the after party for Happythankyoumoreplease in support of her best friend, Zoe Kazan. Pictures have been added to the gallery!
Thanks to my wonderful friend Mariana, I’ve been able to add scans from Guardian Weekend, Radio Times and Sunday Times Style to the gallery! Please do not repost these on other sites as they were scanned specifically for Carey Mulligan Online. Thanks.
It’s the day of the premiere and confusion reigns inside the London hotel. TV cables are snaking down the corridors, photographers stand in huddles and the doors keep opening and shutting like a Feydeau farce. The press minders, meantime, have turned harried and irritable. “What time are we leaving, Jane?” barks one to the other. “It’s Kate,” Kate snaps back.
In all the hubbub it takes me a moment to register Carey Mulligan, hiding out on a window-seat with her back to the light. Her blond bob is scrunched, her make-up applied. At first glance, she might be a 14-year-old trying to pass for 18 at the local nightclub. Then she gets to her feet and is instantly transformed, looming 5ft 10in in her tottering heels. Her voice is in her boots; rich and deep, at least three octaves lower than it ought to be. Everything about her is quietly confounding.
In the course of a hectic six-year career, Mulligan has conspired to look both young and old, plain and beautiful. She was flyweight and mousy as Kitty Bennet in Pride & Prejudice, grave and soulful as Ada Clare in the BBC production of Bleak House; impishly vulnerable in her Oscar-nominated breakthrough in An Education, a broken bird when she played The Seagull on Broadway. I can’t tell whether she’s a wizened, watchful Miss Marple in the guise of a limpid ingénue, or the other way around. “I have a very forgettable face,” she explains ruefully. “I don’t look specific.”
Carey Mulligan is returning to the New York stage this spring — and she’ll be losing her mind.
The elfin star of An Education is set to star in an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1961 film, Through a Glass Darkly. The adaptation is set to premiere off-Broadway starting May 13.
The 25-year-old actress will play an intense young woman harrowed by psychiatric illness who spirals out of control while on holiday with her husband, father and brother.
Jokes the Oscar-nominated star: “Everyone wants to play someone with a problem.”
The play will be at the Atlantic Theater Company. The rest of the cast will be announced later.
Pictures of Carey from day two at the Dubai International Film Festival have surfaced, including a pretty new portrait session! Carey presented Colin Firth with his Variety “International Star of the Year” award.
