THE actress at the heart of a Highgate journalist's memoirs triumphed at the Bafta awards last night.
Carey Mulligan scooped the best actress accolade at the prestigious awards ceremony held in London.
The 24-year-old has won great acclaim for her role as Jenny in An Education, an adaptation of Lynn Barber's coming of age recollections.
Speaking to the Ham&High last week, Ms Barber praised Ms Mulligan's acting skills and told how much she enjoyed the film, which was adapted by author Nick Hornby.
An Education tells the story of a young Ms Barber and her love for a much older man.
The film failed to win the best film award, which was given to war drama Hurt Locker.
