Personal Quotes (2)

[on her role in Call the Midwife (2012)] I feel, possibly delusionally, that I could deliver a baby in real life. Although, of course, I would have no idea what I was doing and I would be a danger to society.
[on Promising Young Woman (2020)] How dedicated and brilliant every single person was who came on board, and they all did it because they believed in it. It was a low-budget, 23-day shoot with a first-time director. Their hard work has been rewarded. I'm especially so proud of Carey Carey Mulligan, who is truly the best person in the world. She is the film.
