The British actress caused a stir as she left the venue to a crowd of waiting fans all clamoring for an autograph.
Carey looked effortlessly chic in a simple black coat by Burberry, wrapping up warm with a statement scarf by the British luxury brand.
The beaming beauty was only too happy to stop for pictures as she headed off into the night.
Set over the course of four days, the four-part drama explores the spiraling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man.
Written by pre-eminent playwright David Hare, Colleteral also stars Billie Piper and John Simm.
Carey spoke out about her experience with sexism in the film industry in the January edition of Vogue Australia.
‘I have felt belittled and… kind of lesser-than. I’ve definitely experienced sexism in terms of how I’ve been treated,’ the 32-year-old revealed.
‘When I’ve tried to assert my opinion on scripts, for example, I feel I’ve had to fight a bit harder to get my voice heard,’ she said.
Carey is set to grace the cover of the January issue of Australian edition of the style bible.
She also spoke about her latest role in Collateral as Detective Inspector Kip Glaspie, which she undertook while pregnant.
The BAFTA Award-winning actress told the magazine she told series writer Dave Hare that she was expecting her second child.
She then asked if she could still play the part while pregnant to which he said yes.
‘I loved that he didn’t rewrite my character, that he just didn’t make a fuss about it. It felt more real to life, because when you’re pregnant you do just go about your life,’ she said.
