HOLLYWOOD film star Carey Mulligan has revealed that shooting Far From The Madding Crowd has left her exhausted.

The Oscar-nominated Shame actress, 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 star said.

 

TRANSFORMED

Mulligan, who is married to Mumford And Sons' frontman Marcus Mumford, stars in David Nicholls's big-screen version alongside Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, Michael Sheen and Juno Temple.

Filming the blockbuster has seen Sherborne in Dorset transformed into a movie set as it doubles as the fictional town of Casterbridge, with Mulligan seen wearing Victorian costume.

A Victorian market has been created outside the abbey with shops on having their frontages transformed to fit the era Work for the film has included re-dressing shop windows and covering the grass outside the abbey with gravel. In August, hundreds of people auditioned in Bridport for the open casting of the film.
