EMERALD FENNELL AND CAREY MULLIGAN IN CONVERSATION

It could only be her. Carey is… just famously good and she chooses so carefully and she’s really always kept to her own journey in terms of what she picks. She’s very private, which makes quite an enigmatic actress. I really wanted somebody who wasn’t going to come and make her a kick-ass superhero comic book character. I wanted her to be the stillness at the center of it all. She was my dream person. — Emerald Fennell
