Glee creator Ryan Murphy refused to let British actress Carey Mulligan appear in a cameo on the show – because she “wasn’t famous enough”.

The Oscar nominee is such a big fan of the hit U.S. program she approached the makers and asked if she could appear in an episode.

But the An Education actress was told she wasn’t well-known enough to land a special part.

She says, “I really wanted to be in Glee. I did ask about it, but I was told I wasn’t famous enough to have a cameo.”
