Sally Sparrow Sings!
If you canâ€™t, go and crack open the Series 3 box set of Doctor Who and watch episode ten right now. Go on. For those of you who do (and obviously canâ€™t help anything but) remember plucky Sally and her battle of against the Weeping Angels, youâ€™ll surely remember the actress who played her so brilliantly, Carey Mulligan.
In the last few years, Mulligan has gone from strength to strength as an actress and is one of the up and coming talents in the UK. But now sheâ€™s extended her talent to singing after she lent her musical talents to Belle and Sebastian for their newest single â€œWrite about Loveâ€.
Cinematical.com reported that:
BBC America spotted the song, a ’60s-ish pop tune… It’s spunky and pretty darned addictive.
Though it details a girl stuck in a crappy day job who escapes to the roof, looks over the city, and wants to write about love and “see the dream through the windows and the trees of your living room,” let’s hope Mulligan sticks with her big-screen work … at least until she headlines as a pop princess on the big screen.
The article goes on to suggest that Carey would be great for a role in My Fair Lady if it ever gets a modern remake.
Mulligan allegedly tried to get a guest part in Glee but wasnâ€™t deemed â€œfamous enoughâ€.
