Carey Mulligan on The Dig: ‘Platonic leads are very rare on screen… This is different’

Entertainment
When I suggest to the director of The Dig that a film about archaeology isn't usual blockbuster fare, he quite rightly reminds me that "Lara Croft and Indiana Jones were pretty big box office hits".Simon Stone has a point - and while digging a hole and poking about in the mud may not seem action-packed - the lure of buried treasure and hidden mysteries from the past does have a unique attraction. And for those who don't know their Sutton Hoo history, the real-life discovery of an Anglo-Saxon ghost ship filled with riches, weaponry and armour in Suffolk back in 1939 was a fairly big deal.

In 2020 alone he starred alongside Harrison Ford in the adventure film The Call Of The Wild and showcased his version of blue steel as Alexander Lemtov in the comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga.
