Actress Carey Mulligan, who has starred in films and films like Pride & Prejudice (2005), Bleak House (2005), Northanger Abbey (2007) and The Seagull, recently revealed that she spends months getting ready to roles because she felt the need to justify her casting, as she had never been to theater school.
The actress also said there has been a shift in focus since she started her career. Read all of it below.
“I didn’t go to drama school, I felt a little lucky, so I thought I had to do a lot of homework to be able to be here. The reality of my life now is that I have two kids under the age of five, and I’m lucky if I can learn my lines and introduce myself, ”said Carey Mulligan, in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, a reported contactmusic.com.
“We finally understand that the public wants to see stories about women who are not necessarily always nice. You always cheer them on, you still care about them – it’s brilliantly done in “Fleabag”, and brilliantly done in “I May Destroy You”. Some of the things these two characters do that are totally morally questionable and unpleasant, but you’re 100% behind them, throughout. It’s really fun to see people behaving badly… I certainly didn’t experience this kind of activity in my first decade working, ”said Carey Mulligan.
Carey Mulligan also admitted that she was hesitant when she was first offered the role of Revenge Cassie in the dark comedy thriller “Promising Young Women”. She said, “When the script got to my agent, I just didn’t know what to do with it. I was like, “Why would (director) Emerald (Fennell) ask me to do this?”
That changed when she read the script. “I said, ‘Em, I just have to tell you, I love him so much, please let’s do this.’ And from there it was just super fun, ”she recalls.
