London: Actress Carey Mulligan, known for her role in `An Education`, is said to be dating rocker Marcus Mumford - both have been spending time in Marcus`s home here after they met at a gig in Nashville, Tennessee last month.

"Marcus invited Carey to watch him play a secret show in the basement of his friend Mike Harris` home in Nashville. She sat in the front row while he was singing and Marcus looked down at Carey and she blushed," a news daily quoted a source as saying.

"It was clear they had chemistry. Afterwards they went to the City House restaurant and dined with friends but they sat together and acted like a couple," the source added.

Mumford has reportedly invited Mulligan to accompany him when his band tours the US next month.

"Carey`s hoping they can spend more time together when Marcus flies back to America next month for a major tour with his band. He`s hired a vintage train instead of a tour bus and has asked Carey to join him for the trip. It`s early days but they seem to enjoy each other`s company," said an insider.
