Carey Mulligan was born on May 28, 1985, in London, England. While in school, Mulligan performed in a number of theatrical productions, including the musical Sweet Charity.
Mulligan met screenwriter Julian Fellowes when he spoke at her school. He eventually put her in touch with a casting agent. That agent helped her land a role in 2005’s Pride & Prejudice. That same year, Mulligan had a featured role in the British miniseries Bleak House. More television projects soon followed, including 2006’s The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard and 2007’s Northanger Abbey. She played a prostitute in the 2009 gangster film Public Enemies. After An Education, Mulligan’s career enjoyed a substantial boost. She went on to appear as Michael Douglas’s daughter in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps (2010). The following year, Mulligan starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in the film adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby. In 2015, Mulligan returned to Broadway in the play Skylight. Around this time, Mulligan also starred in the film adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Maddening Crowd.
