Carey Mulligan and Ellen Page were originally considered for the role of Jenny Lind, but director Michael Gracey, instead, wanted Rebecca Ferguson for the role.
Around 2/3rds of the movie in we see Barnam leaving with Lind to start her US tour. The film shows a horse drawn carriage waiting outside the door, with Lind already seated inside, it collects Barnam, and then leaves down a gravel drive from the house leaving tracks as it goes down the drive. However there is only one set of tracks that is being created as the carriage leaves, there should have been at least one more set as the carriage came to the house to collect Barnam, as well as other marks from use, such as foot/horse prints.
