Meiling: “Congratulations on the film. You are a really good actress. So first of all, how do you want people to accept your flawed character on the screen?”
Carey, “Yeah, that is sort of what drew me to the part is just a realistic portray of a woman, I think we are all flawed, and making mistakes, we all have those moments of life that we don’t behave perfectly, and we used to see women behave very well on the screen. If a mother is on screen she is usually a saint or the worst person that ever lived. There’s no sort of middle ground. So, I like the idea of seeing a woman that’s having a really bad week.”
Meiling: “You have played so many different characters. What are other types of character, dream characters, you have not played, but you want to portray on the screen?”
Carey, “I don’t know if that’s a dream character. I’d like to do something that’s contemporary because I have done quite a lot of period films. I don’t know if there’s a dream role as much as directors that I want to work with. And I would like to do something that I haven’t done before.”
