Bonus Trivia

.

Prior to working in film, Nagy was a playwright and theater director in London.

.

"Between the writing of 'Carol' and now, I lived in the U.K. for a long time. I wrote quite a few screenplays for people whilst also having a career as a playwright, and so that kept me going. What I learned through that is to not take jobs that you’re not good for. People want whoever wrote the last script that they’ve heard of, but that doesn’t mean you should take those jobs. That’s what I learned. I could’ve written the best things I’ve ever written in my life, and yet the contexts were wrong, and I was never going to do what was required." - from www.deadline.com, December 28, 2015
