On November 02, Carey Mulligan attended the opening of the 2014 Into Film Festival, which is the world’s biggest youth festival. She was joined by 750 young fans, with many of them dressed as their favourite film characters. The screening was one of 2,700 events taking place across Britain, which aims to explore film and its educational potential for young people.
“Film is an amazing learning tool – it enables people to understand more about history, society and much more. When I was growing up I didn’t have the opportunity to engage with film in this way. I think it’s an incredible chance for young people to discover films that they may not have considered watching before, talk about it with their classmates, and possibly be inspired to follow a career in the film industry.”
Up to 300,000 people aged 5-19 are expected to take part in the festival, which runs until November 21.

The big-screen star dazzled on stage this summer in Skylight. Before the play transfers to Broadway, she talks to Abi Morgan, the award-winning screenwriter who created a role especially for her in the forthcoming Suffragette.
Meeting Carey Mulligan for the first time at the British Independent Film Awards in 2010, the writer Abi Morgan (who penned The Hour and The Iron Lady) recalls a girl who was ‘giddy, very smiley, lovely and sweet’. Mulligan had just agreed to appear in Shame, which Morgan co-wrote. Mulligan’s role in 2009’s An Education had already made her a star, but it was Shame, directed by Steve McQueen, that marked out her trajectory as probably the most fearless actress of her generation. ‘Raw’ is the word Morgan uses to describe her performance.
This year, West End audiences got to see that rawness in the flesh, when Mulligan took to the stage opposite Bill Nighy in a revival of David Hare’s Skylight. Reviews were justly glowing. Mulligan was a revelation. (The production transfers to Broadway next March.) Over the past year, the 29-year-old actress, who lives between London and a farm in Devon with her musician husband Marcus Mumford (of Mumford & Sons), has also finished shooting Far from the Madding Crowd, directed by Thomas Vinterberg, in which she lays Thomas Hardy’s wilful heroine Bathsheba Everdene, and Suffragette, also written by Morgan and directed by Sarah Gavron, about the early years of the British suffrage movement. Audiences will have to wait until mid-2015 to see those performances.
In September, a week after the London run of Skylight ended, Morgan and Mulligan sat down for breakfast at Electric House in west London to discuss Suffragette, their peripatetic childhoods (Mulligan is the daughter of a hotelier; Morgan of a touring actress), the strains of public life and Mulligan’s incredible career, past and to come.
Things have been pretty quiet around here whilst Carey has been busy appearing in Skylight for the past few months, but hopefully once the show finishes its run (next Saturday), we will have some new projects to look forward to, including Far from the Madding Crowd and Suffragette. In the meantime, here’s a lovely HQ shot of Carey with her Skylight cast that appeared in Vogue to promote the show.

Sorry these are so late, I’ve had them sat on my computer for weeks and only just realised that I’d not uploaded them to the gallery. I’ve just added 13 lovely HQ images of Carey from the press night for Skylight, which took place on June 18. Enjoy!
I’ve just updated the gallery with some stills and posters from Carey’s current theatre production Skylight – who has tickets for this? I’m off next weekend, I can’t wait to see it!
