‘Some years ago, when she was fighting anxiety over a play that she was doing in London, Mulligan received advice from a friend. “She said, ‘Trust your casting,’ ” Mulligan recalls. “And I think that works both ways. If you’ve got the job, you’re there for a reason. And if you haven’t got the job, it’s for a reason. They’re protecting you from something you’re not meant to do, that you’re not right for and that someone else can do better.
“And I have no doubt that people can do things better. But you just sort of ache for a part.”‘
