KELLY MACDONALD's career took off after her role as Ewan McGregor's one-night stand in
1996's TRAINSPOTTING. She followed with starring roles in numerous feature films, most
poignantly as the teenage prostitute in STELLA DOES TRICKS; as the feisty girl who charms a
schizophrenic Daniel Craig in SOME VOICES; and more than held her own in the all-star cast of
Robert Altman's British country-house thriller, GOSFORD PARK, for which she received an Empire
Award nomination for Best Actress and shared the Screen Actors Guild AwardÂ® for Outstanding
Performance by the Cast of a Theatrical Motion Picture.
Kelly was most recently seen in the Coen Brothers' film NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN,
winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture of the Year. The film, which made over 50 top ten
critic's lists, also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin and Woody Harrelson. She
will re-team with Tommy Lee Jones in the forthcoming IN THE ELECTRIC MIST.
For her role in Richard Curtis's THE GIRL IN THE CAFE, Macdonald was honored with an
Emmy, as well as a Golden Globe nomination. Macdonald has also starred in INTERMISSION, Marc
Forster's highly acclaimed FINDING NEVERLAND (as Peter Pan), TRISTRAM SHANDY: A
COCK AND BULL STORY for Michael Winterbottom, ALL THE INVISIBLE CHILDREN for
