      Ever since her debut as one of the stars in Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting" (1996), actress Kelly MacDonald enjoyed a vibrant and award-worthy career. Though not necessarily a household name, Macdonald nonetheless delivered some finely-tuned performances in many noted films without any formal training - highly unusual from an actress from across the pond. After "Trainspotting," she settled into a series of supporting roles in films like "Elizabeth" (1998) and "Gosford Park" (2001); the latter of which earned her considerable acclaim and recognition for being part of an excellent ensemble cast. But it was her small screen performance in "The Girl in the Café" (HBO, 2005) that propelled her career, thanks in large part to winning an Emmy Award for supporting actress. MacDonald parlayed this success into a breakout feature performance in "No Country for Old Men" (2007), which in turn led to her acclaimed role on the hit cable series, "Boardwalk Empire" (HBO, 2010-14). Regardless of time, place or accent, Macdonald demonstrated a wide-ranging talent that consistently pushed her to new heights.
