Carey Mulligan's On-set Tears

Carey Mulligan found it hard not to burst into tears on the set of 'Never Let Me Go'.

The Oscar-nominated actress - who stars alongside Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield in the Mark Romanek-directed thriller about a group of friends growing up together - found herself full of emotion when working on the project because of the sensitive nature of the script.

She said: "It's always harder to maintain raw enthusiasm or joy than to go into a really dark place. I think for us with this it was trying not to cry, I cry all the time, it's my modus operandi.

"We all wanted to mark each other and say don't drop a tear, we were all watching each other. With our characters we didn't want to portray tragedy, we just wanted to live in the circumstances we were in and the circumstances we had."

The 25-year-old beauty read the Kazuo Ishiguro-penned novel prior to working on the film, and loved the "simple" nature of the story.

She told Flicks and Bits: "I read the book when it came out and loved it, I always loved it first and foremost because it's a love story and it's about, um, you can want very simple things from life but not get them."
