A new, full-length trailer for Carey’s upcoming film “Suffragette” has just been released online today. Watch it in full below:
As it is the lovely Carey Mulligan’s 30th birthday today, I felt that I should update the site with some nice additional high-quality stills and on set images from her latest film “Far From the Madding Crowd”. There are also a lot of replacement images for the original smaller images. Enjoy!
Their faces grace the covers of national magazines, and heads turn when they walk down the street.
But this season, they threw themselves into revivals of two highly regarded plays, he as the physically afflicted title character in “The Elephant Man,” by Bernard Pomerance, and she as a schoolteacher in “Skylight,” by David Hare.
Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan, both Oscar-nominated film stars, are now both Tony Award nominees and are embracing the stage, even as they continue to manage Hollywood careers. “The Elephant Man,” which closed on Broadway in February at the end of a limited run, is transferring to London this summer; “Skylight,” which ran in London last year, is scheduled to play until June 21 in New York.
The two have never worked together, although they have had a number of cinematic near-misses: He auditioned, unsuccessfully, to portray her husband in “The Great Gatsby,” while she sought, also unsuccessfully, a role in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Ultimately, as show business would have it, they met through a shared publicist and have since become friends.
The 2015 Tony Awards have just been revealed, and Carey Mulligan has been nominated for Best Leading Actress in a Play for her role in “Skylight”, whilst her co-star Bill Nighy has been nominated for Best Lead Actor. The play itself has also been nominated for Best Revival, Best Featured Actor (Matthew Beard), Best Director (Stephen Daldry), Best Scenic Design and Best Lighting. Congratulations to the cast and crew!

I have just uploaded 191 additional high-quality images of Carey Mulligan from the world premiere of “Far From the Madding Crowd” which took place in London yesterday – didn’t Carey look lovely in her sparkly Dior Haute Couture dress? Big thanks to our lovely friend Lindsey for her donation of images – make sure to visit her site Matthias Schoenaerts Network to find out more about Carey’s latest costar.
You may also have noticed that we have a lovely new theme up here at the main site! The header was made by the talented NowhereLand9 Design and the theme base was from Sin21 Designs. I am slowly editing and revamping all of the pages, and aim to make this your only resource for Carey Mulligan online! Is there anything in particular you would like to see? Let me know either in the comments or over on Twitter!
The world premiere for Carey Mulligan’s new film “Far From the Madding Crowd” is currently taking place in London, and the first images from the event are now up in the gallery. More on the way!
The first teaser trailer for Carey Mulligan’s upcoming drama “Suffragette” has just been released online, and you can watch it below. Carey Mulligan plays Maud and Meryl Streep stars as noted British political activist Emmeline Pankhurst. “Suffragette” has a U.K. release date of October 30, with no date set for the US as of yet.
“Suffragette” is an intense drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement as they fought for the right to vote, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. The character of Maud, played by Carey Mulligan, is one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is both heart-breaking and inspirational.
