Early life and education

Carey Mulligan was born in London on May 28, 1985, to Nano (née Booth) and Stephen Mulligan. Her father, a hotel manager, is of Irish descent and hails from Liverpool. Her mother, a university lecturer, hails from Llandeilo, Wales. When they were both working in a hotel in their twenties, her parents met. Denzil Booth, the grandmother of her maternal grandfather, was on HMS Indefatigable during the Battle of Okinawa and then sailing into Tokyo Bay at the end of World War II.

Mulligan's mother's hotelier job brought the family to Germany when she was three years old. She and her brother attended the International School of Düsseldorf while living there. When she was eight years old, she and her family returned to the United Kingdom. She attended Woldingham School, Surrey's independent school, as an adolescent.

When she was six years old, her sister was a student in a school production of The King and I. She begged for participation in the role during rehearsals and begged for his teachers to let her participate. They welcomed her to the chorus. She was heavily involved in theatre as an adolescent at Woldingham School. She was the student head of the drama department, appeared in plays and musicals, led workshops with younger students, and assisted with the productions.

She appeared in Henry V, which starred Kenneth Branagh, when she was 16 years old. His appearance emboldened her and reinsed her that she wanted to pursue a career in acting. She wrote a letter to Branagh requesting his assistance. "I explained that my parents didn't want me to act, but that I felt it was my calling in life." "Kenneth says that if you feel such a strong desire to be an actress, you must be an actor," Branagh's sister said.

Mulligan's parents disapproved of her acting ambitions and wished for her to attend a university like her brother. She applied to three London drama schools rather than the universities she had intended to attend at, but she was not allowed to attend them at age 17. Actor/screenwriter Julian Fellowes gave a lecture at the school about the film Gosford Park during her final year at Woldingham College. Mulligan briefly spoke with him after the lecture and asked for guidance on an acting career. Fellowes attempted to dissuade her from the work, but instead, she suggested she "marry a lawyer." Undeterred, she sent Fellowes a letter in which she said she was serious about acting and that it was their calling in life.

Emma Mulligan, a fellow's wife, welcomed Mulligan to a dinner she and her husband were hosting for young aspiring actors a few weeks later. It enabled Mulligan's introduction and a casting assistant that culminated in an audition for a part of Pride and Prejudice. She appeared three times and was eventually given the role of Kitty Bennet. She served as a pub barmaid and an errand-runner for Ealing Studios in between acting roles in her late teens and early twenties.

Personal life

Mulligan is married to Marcus Mumford, the lead singer of Mumford & Sons. They were pen pals growing up and reconnected as adults. They married on April 21, 2012, just a few weeks after finishing film Inside Llewyn Davis, which was in which they were both involved. They have two children.
