Carey Mulligan: It Gives Everyone The Freedom To Have Fun

Posted: Updated:

The last we saw Carey Mulligan was in "The Great Gatsby," which hit theaters 6 months ago.  But for Carey, there was no break between films.

"It was crazy because I wrapped filming ‘The Great Gatsby', got on a plane, and started shooting in New York two days later on a Coen Brothers film.  It was a totally different world and a completely different character. ‘Inside Llewyn Davis' all happened really quickly.

"I got the script and they asked me to do an audition," Carey told the Flicks and Bits website.  "I spoke to them on the phone, and freaked out that I was on the phone to the Coen Bros. Then I taped this audition and sent it over to them and they offered me the job the next day. They're probably my favorite filmmakers, and I can't believe that I get to be one of their characters. It's ridiculous and so exciting."

Very exciting, and given that it was the Coen Brothers, she placed herself completely in their hands.

"I never wanted to see the monitor, I wanted to be surprised and give the Coens what they wanted. It's probably the coolest job I've ever had. The Coen Brothers are so cool, unbelievably cool. It was a completely different set. They sort of tend to stand behind the monitor and you occasionally hear them chuckle, and you think, "I've done something right!" (Laughs) And then they'll come out and chat to you and they're wonderful."
