Good for you, Carey! This is def a step up from your role in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
Carey Mulligan made her Broadway debut in 2008's The Seagull with Peter Sarsgaard, and on May 13, she'll be returning to the stage in an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's 1961 film Through a Glass Darkly.
Here's what Carey had to say about her new role:
"It's an incredible descent into insanity. It's horribly scary and I have no idea what I'm going to do. Everyone wants to play someone with a problem."
"I'm more consumed by theater than I am by film. I never set out really to be a film actress. I love it and I'm incredibly lucky, but I find it easier to throw myself into a play than film. I'm always much more self-aware and self-conscious when I'm doing film because cameras really freak me out."
We're happy for U, Miss Mulligan, and we're thinking this play could def be a success. Ingmar Bergman has quite the following.
We guarantee you'll have literally EVERY NYU film student in attendance for those first few performances.
Are U excited to see Carey Mulligan do her theatre thing on Broadway?
