Kelly Macdonald: Margaret Thompson, Margaret Schroeder, Mrs. Rohan
Kelly Macdonald - Wikipedia
The rags-to-riches journey of Margaret Thompson formerly Schroeder is one of the more captivating plot lines of Boardwalk Empire. Do you think she got what she deserved or is she being treated unfairly? It was pretty harsh! Is it safe to say that the theme for Margaret this season is independence? She wants to be more proactive, and take charge of things a little bit. You looked rather wistful during that scene, but you mentioned how it was very cold when you shot the first couple of episodes.
Q&A: ‘Boardwalk Empire’s’ Kelly Macdonald on Margaret’s Independent Streak
U ntil recently, Kelly Macdonald was one of that rare breed of famous people who went unnoticed in public. Not any more. You can be in the biggest film of the year and it will still not have the kind of impact a TV series has. Once you're in people's living rooms, that's it. There's no hiding place.
Soft-spoken verging on shy, she wears a plain gray T-shirt and no makeup. Her honeyed hair falling messily around her shoulders, Macdonald looks more like a laid-back grad student than a TV star, incognito, on her day off. Over the past decade and a half, Macdonald has appeared in more than two dozen films and TV shows in the U. Which is how she prefers it.
