British actress Carey Mulligan apparently loves being a New Yorker. From her meticulous preparation for Broadway’s Skylight to learning to ride for the sweepingly romantic Far from the Madding Crowd, Carey Mulligan gave the fashion magazine a great short interview.
Mulligan earned an Oscar-nominated for 2009’s An Education, and she co-starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby.” Her notable Broadway debut was back in a 2008 production of Chekhov’s “The Seagull.” Mulligan is married to musician Marcus Mumford, frontman of Mumford & Sons.
Moving to New York City might seem scary to some people, but for Mulligan, in town for her Broadway role in Skylight, it’s as easy as grabbing an Uber. Learn her secrets to New York, from SoulCycle to the best local spots, in this original short directed by Cass Bird.

Mulligan can also be found in the film “Suffragette.” It’s Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) movie based on an Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, The Hour) script retelling the story of the campaign to secure women the right to vote in the early years of the 20th century, and it boasts Carey Mulligan, who plays the film’s central character Maud. She is joined by Meryl Streep—cast as Emmeline Pankhurst—as well as Helena Bonham Carter, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Dugg and Brendan Gleeson.
