But Kelly managed to hold onto her career and continued onward towards other roles that will be mentioned in just a bit. Initially she was working as a barmaid in Glasgow when she happened to notice a leaflet that had information about an open casting session for Trainspotting. That was how she managed to audition and then land the part that would begin her trek into films and eventually into the public eye. Her other roles before she really took off as a successful actress came in the movies Two Family House and Finding Neverland, where she played an actress playing the role of Peter Pan.

Fans of the original cult smash Trainspotting have been feverishly awaiting the debut of its sequel, T2 Trainspotting, which hits Australian screens February Here, Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald — who was 19 and working as a waitress in Glasgow when she won the role of Diane in Trainspotting at an open audition — talks about being reunited with the cast and director Danny Boyle 20 years on. A Trainspotting sequel was in the pipeline for a while. How did you find out about it and what was your reaction to being a part of it again? He asked me if he and Danny Boyle could come around and see me in Glasgow for a cuppa. It was all a bit unusual and I made them some undrinkable coffee after losing count of scoops.
And where are you going, Diane? It's where I live. Well, I'll come back with you if you like, but like, I'm not promising anything, you know. Do you find that this approach usually works?
It was a nerve-wracking experience, but one that put MacDonald on a path to becoming a film and TV actress who works easily in both the U. Milne and his son. MacDonald plays Olive, Christopher Robin's real-life nanny, in the tear-jerker of a flick that was directed by Simon Curtis.
