Mulligan Keen To Play Juliet On Broadway

AN EDUCATION star CAREY MULLIGAN is desperate to tackle WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE's most beloved heroine on Broadway before she's too old to play her.
The actress, 25, hopes to hit the stage as Juliet in a new production of Romeo & Juliet next year (11).
She tells WENN, "I've been talking to someone about Romeo & Juliet and I'd never sort of gone after it and tried to make that happen. I've never done Shakespeare, so that really scares me. But it's exciting.
"I won't be able to play Juliet in a couple of years and if I'm ever gonna do it I should do it now."
And Mulligan insists she'll always return to the stage in between movies - because theatre's in her blood.
She adds, "I love doing film but I do think I'm more comfortable on stage because the film was never the dream."
