Carey Mulligan Would've Been 'Devastated' If Someone Else Snagged Her 'Promising Young Woman' Role

In the new comedic thriller "Promising Young Woman," Carey Mulligan portrays med school dropout-turned-vigilante Cassandra – a role she was dying to play. "I mean, there are some scripts that you read and you think, if anybody else gets this, I would be devastated, if anyone else gets this part – and that's how I felt about Cassie from the beginning," Carey told Access Hollywood's Zuri Hall. Director Emerald Fennell and co-star Laverne Cox also shared details about the highly anticipated film. "Promising Young Woman" will be released on Dec. 25.
