Carey Mulligan

November 24, 2008

Rarely does an actor find work through an aggressive letter-writing campaign. But that’s pretty much how it happened for 23-year-old British newcomer Carey Mulligan. “I had no idea how to become an actor,” Mulligan confesses. “So when I was 16, I’d write letters to people like Kenneth Branagh and ask for advice.”

A former child model-he posed professionally from ages 12 to 15 (“when I stopped looking like a girl”)-Pattinson has been dubbed “the next Jude Law” in the British press. “I don’t really see the similarity,” he says. One opportunity to break out comes via next year’s Little Ashes, a Spanish drama in which Pattinson stars as the young Salvador Dalí.
