4y ago


[BlackTreeTV Europe - Edinburgh Scotland] Tara Hitchcock gets BRAVE as she learns how to shoot an arrow like BRAVE character Marida does in this Disney Pixar Animation. KELLY MACDONALD (Merida) portrays Margaret Schroeder on "Boardwalk Empire." She's also known for pivotal roles in work by some of the most influential filmmakers of our time: "No Country for Old Men" by the Coen brothers; "Gosford Park," directed by Robert Altman; and "Trainspotting" by Danny Boyle. For each of the past two seasons of "Boardwalk Empire," Macdonald garnered an Emmy® nomination, plus two consecutive Golden Globe® Award nominations and successive Screen Actors Guild Awards® with the ensemble cast of the hit HBO series from creator Terence Winter and executive producer Martin Scorsese. Macdonald stars as an Irish widow and mother who captures the attention of Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City during Prohibition. "Boardwalk Empire" returns to HBO for a third season in September. The native of Glasgow, Scotland, made her acting debut as Diane, Renton's (Ewan McGregor) one-night stand in "Trainspotting" (1996). In 2001, she played Mary, the visiting servant who works for Maggie Smith's countess in "Gosford Park" (SAG, Critics' Choice Awards for the ensemble). Macdonald garnered the London Critics' Circle Award for British Supporting Actress, a BAFTA nomination and a SAG Award (ensemble) for her performance as the wife of Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) in "No Country for Old Men." Macdonald is next seen opposite Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson in Joe Wright's adaptation of Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," which opens September 7 in the U.K. and November 9 in U.S. theaters. Macdonald's screen credits include "The Decoy Bride" opposite David Tennant, "Choke" with Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston (Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize for the ensemble), "Nanny McPhee" with Emma Thompson, "Lassie" with Peter O'Toole, "All the Invisible Children" for Mehdi Charef and Emir Kusturica, John Crowley's "Intermission," "Cousin Bette" with Jessica Lange, "Elizabeth" with Cate Blanchett, "Strictly Sinatra," Gregg Araki's "Splendor," Phil Joanou's "Entropy," Mike Figgis' "The Loss of Sexual Innocence," Hugh Hudson's "My Life So Far," "Stella Does Tricks" and "Some Voices" opposite Daniel Craig. For "Two Family House," Macdonald received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead. She made cameo appearances as The Grey Lady in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," as Peter Pan in Marc Forster's "Finding Neverland," in Michael Winterbottom's "Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story," and in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." For television, Macdonald garnered an Emmy® Award for her performance as the title character opposite Bill Nighy in the HBO original film "The Girl in the Café," directed by David Yates from a screenplay by Richard Curtis.
