Carey Mulligan loves working in London.

The 28-year-old star - who is married to musician Marcus Mumford - has returned to her hometown to film her new movie 'Suffragette' with Meryl Streep, and to star alongside Bill Nighy in 'Skylight' and she's confessed it's refreshing to see her family after a long day on set.

She said: ''I'm really happy to do something in London. And to go home to my house every night, and see my friends and family, and have people who never usually get to see me on stage see it. There's something about doing it in a hometown that feels a bit special.''

The 'Inside Llewyn Davies' actress - who has starred alongside heartthrobs Ryan Gosling in 'Drive' and Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Great Gatsby' - is excited to make her return to the stage after seven years in such a beautiful theatre.

Quizzed on what she thinks of the theatre where 'Skylight' will open next month, she told Britain's Vogue magazine: ''It's one of those places that's so magical. The Wyndham is the kind of theatre that just speaks to the seven-year-old girl in me. I imagine there'll be light bulbs around the mirrors in our dressing room.''
