This week we’re going from Scotland to Texas to Atlantic City as we take on the career of Kelly Macdonald. Starting off as the underage seductress Diane in Trainspotting, Macdonald channeled this success into securing strong roles in Robert Altman’s Gosford Park and the 2003 Irish thriller Intermission. The mid-2000s saw her support in childrens’ films like Nanny McPhee and Lassie and in more adult fare like the Coen Brothers mega-successful neo-Western No Country for Old Men. TV has been the best place to catch Macdonald’s work in the last decade which saw her star in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, the BBC series Giri/Haji and the latest season of Line of Duty. Not only is she a face you know, she’s one you never forget.
