Kelly Macdonald (born 23 February 1976) is a Scottish actress, known for playing in the independent film Trainspotting and mainstream releases such as Gosford Park, Nanny McPhee, Intermission, No Country for Old Men and the up-coming The Decoy Bride.
After the success of previous films, such as Trainspotting and Gosford Park, Macdonald landed supporting roles in the films, Intermission (2003), as Deirdre, Nanny McPhee (2005), as the scullery maid Evangeline, A Cock and Bull Story (2006), where she plays the girlfriend of actor Steve Coogan`s onscreen alter ego, Coen Brothers` Academy Award-winning No Country for Old Men, (2007), as Carla Jean Moss, the wife of the film`s protagonist, where her agent originally wasn`t sure she was right for the part, and Macdonald is reported as having to "fight for the role". Her persistence paid off, however, as she was nominated for a BAFTA for best supporting actress. Other films where she had supporting roles include, Choke (2008), as Dr. Paige Marshall, the film which was adapted by Clark Gregg from the 2001 Chuck Palahniuk novel, In the Electric Mist (2009), as Kelly Drummond, alongside Tommy Lee Jones and John Goodman and Skellig (2009), as Louise. She also played the lead in The Merry Gentleman (2008), as Kate Frazier. Her next project is the romantic comedy Decoy Bride opposite David Tennant.
