This lass has starred in some really brilliant stuff! Apart from 'Trainspotting', she played a major part in 'Boardwalk Empire', with Steve Buscemi. I couldn't believe it, and she was really excellent as well!

What a supercool actress! 😁👌

I'm loving Kelly's sweet Irish Catholic girl in 'Boardwalk Empire'!

So must Steve Buscemi - and bless the day they decided to make her his lover! His 5ft8.25 looks almost Kingly next to Kelly's 5ft2.5! 👑😆

His less savoury lover is VERY tall! 😬

When she says "sometimes I use the half inch" does that mean she usually says 5'2 or does she round herself up to 5'3?

Now I can understand why Kelly played a schoolgirl in 'Trainspotting'! She wouldn't have been so believable at 5ft9 or 10, would she?
Now, years later, she's even been to Hollywood, and acted in top TV series 'Boardwalk Empire' as well as many movies.
I go along with 5ft2.5 for Kelly.

Might as well add Gosford Park and No Country For Old Men, no?
Editor Rob: yeah, she was missing a photo too!

Damn I'm impressed I thought she was like five foot at the most lol, so tiny in no country for old men, very beautiful still

I think she spells it "Macdonald", Rob. She does look tiny, despite her beauty.

As suspected, wasn't quite 5ft 3: "Because I'm an actress I must be tall. That's the thing I get comments on. I'm five-foot two and a half. Sometimes I use the half- inch"
