Los Angeles, Jan 8 IANS | 11 months ago

British actress Carey Mulligan says her "heart stopped" when she first heard from filmmaker duo Coen Brothers to feature in their movie "Inside Llewyn Davis".


According to femalefirst.co.uk, the 28-year-old said in a TV interview: "I was filming 'The Great Gatsby' in Sydney and I got an email and the subject line was 'The new Coen Brothers movie', and that's the moment my heart stopped really, because you never even think you can get a chance to even audition for a Cohen Brothers film."

"Then I came to Los Angeles and I was doing press and they asked me to audition, so I did in my hotel room, of this very angry young woman," she added.

Mulligan appears as fictional folk-singer Jean Berkey in comedy drama "Inside Llewyn Davis" helmed by Coen Brothers - Joel and Ethan.
