THR: Who influenced you when you were growing up?
Carey Mulligan: When I decided to do “Wall Street 2″ — because I knew that that would be the biggest thing I’d done and my face would be seen by more people than it had ever been seen by before — my mum said, “You can try it and if you hate it you can just come back and be a theater actress in London.” And I was like, that sounds (great) — it’s difficult to have a consistent theater career in London. That would be brilliant. That’s not a compromise or a Plan B.

THR: Did your parents want you to act?
Mulligan: No. We don’t have anyone in our world that’s an actor. I was very angry at them for being so against it but we just had no example of anyone in our life that — my parents ran hotels, my brother was very academic and went to Oxford. I think they just thought that I had to get some sort of a degree to have something to fall back on.

THR: Did you?
Mulligan: I got my A-levels. I was supposed to get an A and two Bs to study drama at Royal Holloway, and I got three Bs so I started working in a pub. I was a barmaid. I had just turned 18 and I looked about 12.
