Actress Carey Mulligan feels since she is not into film production, she has to wait for good roles to come her way.
“It’s still hard now, and it’s still a waiting game for me, because I’m not in a producing role. I just act, so I wait for the scripts. I’ve been lucky in the last 10 years that once a year something unmissable comes along,” she said, according to femalefirst.co.uk.
However, she said that there are some good projects being made. “But there’s a feeling that there are more (good roles for women) and there are people being very proactive, like Emerald, like Phoebe Waller-Bridge, like Margot Robbie. Women who are being very deliberate about creating new and exciting things,” she said.
Carey Mulligan has played a lot of ‘mom roles’, and she says she was apprehensive about playing someone without kids in “Promising Young Woman”.
“I’d been exclusively playing mums for a bit. I had a teenage son in Wildlife and then I had children in ‘Mudbound’. And I had been performing this Dennis Kelly monologue (‘Girls and Boys’) in which I had two children,” she told The Guardian newspaper.
She added: “Then, suddenly, I was a bit like: ‘Can you still buy me as pre-kids?’ It wasn’t anything I’d massively articulated, but I was like, ‘OK, I’m gonna be in that zone again.’ There were lots of things about it that I felt like, ‘I have no idea how to do this.’.”
