In 2008 Mulligan earned a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play for her work in Chekhov’s The Seagull. A letter to screenwriter Julian Fellowes, who she’d met when he gave a speech at her school, helped land Mulligan her first feature film role in 2005’s Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley.
