Welcome to Carey Mulligan Online, your fansite resource since 2009 dedicated to the beautiful Oscar-nominated actress Carey Mulligan, whom you may recognise from her many critically-acclaimed roles including Jenny in An Education, Sissy in Shame, Irene in Drive or Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann's retelling of The Great Gatsby. We aim to bring you all of the latest news and images relating to Carey's career, adding to our extensive career pages and a gallery housing over 23,000 untagged images. Thanks for visiting, and we hope you enjoy your stay!
In the action drama Drive, actress Carey Mulligan plays Irene, the mother of a young son whose father (Oscar Isaacs) is in prison. One day, Driver (Ryan Gosling) meets Irene in an elevator ride at his apartment and he becomes transfixed. When trouble starts, Driver finds himself embroiled even further in Irene’s life.
Following the FilmDistrict Studio panel in Hall H at Comic-Con, Carey Mulligan sat down for a roundtable and talked about how Nicolas Refn was on her fantasy wish list of directors that she wanted to work with, the challenge of making a film where the dialogue has been stripped away, how she wishes she had more stunt work to do, and that she would love to play a butt-kicking heroine in an action movie, but preferably without a spandex costume.

Question: It seems like you’ve been working a lot lately.
CAREY MULLIGAN: Does it? That’s awful.
Is it true that you hadn’t worked in awhile before you made Drive?
MULLIGAN: I didn’t work for a year after Wall Street. I finished that in November, and then it was the following October that I did Drive, so I took a year off. I didn’t do anything at all, really. I just hung around.
I’ve added lots of pretty new photos to the gallery of Carey at Comic-Con! I absolutely love her new pixie crop cut, glad she decided to go back to it again! EDIT: I’ve added a portrait photo of Carey for EW to the gallery as well! Thanks to my good friend Annika for the heads up!
Carey is currently at Comic-Con, where she is going to be at the FilmDistrict Studio Panel, which is showing exclusive footage of Drive along with co-stars Ryan Gosling, Ron Perlman and Christina Hendricks! It also looks like she’s gone back to her adorable short blonde pixie crop – double yay! As soon as anything pops up online we’ll be sure to bring you all the goods, so stay tuned!
2:00-3:00 FilmDistrict Studio Panel
FilmDistrict, the new studio that brought you Insidious, celebrates two upcoming features: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, a Guillermo Del Toro production starring Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce, and Drive, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Ron Perlman, and Christina Hendricks. Exclusive footage will be presented and a Q&A will be held for both films. Hall H
Update: I have added additional pictures of Carey at the Drive panel (thanks to Luciana for those), and have started gathering videos – check them all out beneath the cut!
Hopefully by now Nicholas Winding Refn’s Drive is on your radar. If it’s not, it damn well should be. Refn’s minimalist, 70′s inspired thriller has picked up some considerable momentum since winning the best director award at Cannes.
“Filmed in and around Los Angeles, the crime drama stars Academy Award® Nominees Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine, The Notebook) and Carey Mulligan (An Education, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps) alongside Golden Globe® Winner Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy), Emmy® Nominee Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Oscar Isaac (Body of Lies, Robin Hood) and Academy Award® Nominee Albert Brooks (Taxi Driver, Broadcast News).
DRIVE is the story of a Hollywood stunt driver by day (Ryan Gosling), a loner by nature, who moonlights as a top-notch getaway driver-for-hire in the criminal underworld. He finds himself a target for some of LA’s most dangerous men after agreeing to aid the husband of his beautiful neighbor, Irene (Carey Mulligan). When the job goes dangerously awry, the only way he can keep Irene and her son alive is to do what he does best – Drive! ”
Soon UK folks will be able to see what all the fuss is about, as Icon Film Distibution have picked up Drive for a UK theatrical release on 23rd September 2011.
What is it with Australia today? First comes word of Sydney, I Love You, and now Carey Mulligan looks to be heading to the Australian Outback in search of a little sci-fi action. She’s attached to star in a new film called, shockingly, Outback.
We may have to wait a little while for the film to get moving, though – as it’s based on an original idea from director Gary Ross and writer Nissar Modi, and hasn’t actually been written yet. Add to that the small fact that Ross is a little busy at the moment, working on The Hunger Games.
Variety couldn’t dig up what the film will actually be about other than it’s science fiction with an action focus. Graham King’s GK Films is behind the new movie, which hopefully means it has a solid idea behind it.
And the delay will actually help Mulligan, as she’s been in demand recently – she’s in Drive with Ryan Gosling and stars opposite Michael Fassbender in Steve McQueen’s Shame. Oh, and there’s the small matter of the sizeable role she’s getting set for in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby this summer. Since that film’s been planned for an Australian shoot, maybe she’ll just hang around afterwards…
Through A Glass Darkly has finally opened on Broadway! Last night was the opening, and the reviews for Carey’s performance are already glowing. I’ve added pictures from the curtain call and after-party, with hopefully more on the way. Enjoy!
Even in this age of celebrity sex tapes and nude snapshots on Twitter, watching Carey Mulligan in “Through a Glass Darkly” feels like a major invasion of privacy. Portraying a young woman sliding into insanity in Jenny Worton’s stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1961 film, which opened on Monday night at the New York Theater Workshop, Ms. Mulligan creates the illusion of someone who has no idea that she’s being observed.
There are moments when this extraordinary actress behaves with an ugliness and ungainliness that people reserve for those moments when they’re sure they’re alone. On other occasions she is lovely and ingratiating company, at least on the surface. Karin, Ms. Mulligan’s character, is on vacation with the members of her family, and she wants more than anything for all of them to get along.
But as hard as she tries, Karin can’t stop feeling the pull of the shadow world inside her, a world that starts to seem more real than any external existence. Ms. Mulligan makes sure that we, too, feel that gravitational force, and it is not an easy sensation. But if you want to experience the shock of illumination that acting, at its best, can achieve — and only occasionally does — you need to see Ms. Mulligan’s performance.
