Carey Mulligan 'exhausted' after filming in Dorset
Hollywood film star Carey Mulligan has revealed that shooting Far From The Madding Crowd in Dorset has left her exhausted.
The Oscar-nominated Shame star, who portrays Bathsheba Everdene in a new adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel, admitted the early starts and the outdoor scenes are taking it out of her.
"I am enjoying it so much, it's brilliant. It's outside a lot. Seventy per cent of the film is fields, exteriors and outdoorsy things, which is really great but it's cold and really tiring," the 28-year-old said.
Mulligan, who is married to Mumford And Sons' frontman Marcus Mumford, stars in David Nicholls's big-screen version alongside Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, and Michael Sheen.

Filming the blockbuster has seen Sherborne transformed into a movie set as it doubles as the fictional town of Casterbridge, with Mulligan seen wearing Victorian costume.
Filming has already taken place in Mapperton in the county, with a cinema release planned for spring 2014. Hardy was born in Dorset and lived most of his life in the county, writing novels and poems.
