London: Actress Carey Mulligan has revealed that she very keen to play Juliet in William Shakespeare`s play "Romeo and Juliet" on Broadway.

The 25-year-old actress said she hopes to hit the stage as Juliet in a new production next year.

"I`ve been talking to someone about `Romeo & Juliet` and I`d never sort of gone after it and tried to make that happen. I`ve never done Shakespeare, so that really scares me. But it`s exciting," quoted her as saying.

"I won`t be able to play Juliet in a couple of years and if I`m ever gonna do it I should do it now," she added.

The "Education" star insists she`ll always return to the stage in between movies because she`s more comfortable on stage.

She said: "I love doing film, but I do think I`m more comfortable on stage because the film was never the dream."
