Early Life

Carey Mulligan was born in London in 1985 but spent his early childhood in Germany. From this period dates her first emotions as an actress: at six, she climbed on stage for the first time on the occasion of a musical comedy proposed by her school. Returning to the English capital at 8, it was at the Woldingham School that she learned the art of the stage and reinforced her passion.

Carey Mulligan Career Startup

Thanks to her pellet she writes directly to the casting director without any real reference – the girl takes down her first stripes as the actress with a small role in Pride and Prejudice (2005) by Joe Wright, only 18 years old. She was more noticed three years later thanks to the adaptation of The Seagull by Chekhov, in which she shared the stage alongside Kristin Scott Thomas and Peter Sarsgaard. The following three years offered the actress the opportunity to improve her skills during various television appearances, notably through the series The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard and Doctor Who.

Best Movies

But Carey Mulligan’s career took off in 2009 when she successively replied to Johnny Depp in the thriller of the master Michael Mann, “Public Enemies 2009”, and then to Natalie Portman in the family drama film “Brothers 2009”, directed by Jim Sheridan. The following year, she made herself known to the general public with the title role of “An Education 2009”, where her moving interpretation was crowned with the award for best actress at the BAFTA and an Oscar nomination. She finds Peter Sarsgaard for the occasion.

The actress then continues her career in a big production, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps by Oliver Stone, where she rubs shoulders with Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf. Six years after Pride and Prejudice, she finds Keira Knightley in “Never Let Me Go 2010” where she plays a young girl in love confronted with a terrible reality. In love, she is also highly praised in the movie “Drive 2011” with Ryan Gosling who turns her head.

Her career now seems well and truly launched since we find her in the casting of “Shame 2011” directed by Steve McQueen (II), evoking the theme of sexual addiction through the character portrayed by Michael Fassbender, and “The Great Gatsby 2013”, in which she takes top billing alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as “Inside Llewyn Davis 2013” of Ethan and Joel Coen with Oscar Isaac, and Justin Timberlake.

After two years away from the cinema, Carey Mulligan returned to the big screen in 2015 with the film “Suffragette 2015” directed by Sarah Gavron. In the feature film tracing the true story of British activists claiming the right to vote in a conservative England, the actress plays alongside Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham Carter.

Personal Life

On the private side, the actress meets Shia LaBeouf on the set of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Their romance lasts a year. But Carey Mulligan was quickly comforted by this love disappointment in the arms of Marcus Mumford, the leader of the Mumford & Sons group. The couple married on April 23, 2012.
