As a relative newcomer, British actress Carey Mulligan took Hollywood by storm as the sublimely exuberant Jenny in the feature film, "An Education" (2009). The incandescent actress gave a seemingly effortless portrayal of a young girl who falls for a charming, more experienced man in the film that made her a bona fide movie star and, according to critics, a strong contender for an Oscar nomination. The fresh-faced ingénue was suddenly flooded with plum movie roles that billed her opposite established actors like Michael Douglas in "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps" (2010) and Keira Knightley in "Never Let Me Go" (2010). Mulligan was also romantically linked to A-list actor, Shia LaBeouf, so with that came the inevitable tabloid interest in her as well. While it was a coming-of-age film that kicked Mulligan's career into high gear, it was the actress' penetrating performances both on the big screen and on Broadway that cemented her place as a serious actress worthy of being called "the next Audrey Hepburn."
