Kelly Macdonald Speaks on No Country for Old Men

by at . Comments

Kelly Macdonald portrays the wife of Josh Brolin's character in No Country for Old Men.

The actress who has also starred in Finding Neverland and Nanny McPhee recently spoke with IGN about working with The Coen Brothers.

Q: What did you make of it when you saw the film for the first time?
Macdonald: I watched it here in the screening rooms with Javier [Bardem] and Joel and Ethan [Coen] because they had come over to do our ADR session and Javier had flown over from Spain. It's hard to talk afterwards, there's just so much to take in. So basically the screening finished and Javier was first in, so I got to go and have a coffee with my husband and we had time to decompress a little bit.

It took me until about three-quarters of the way through the film to realise there was no soundtrack, no music. Normally if you see a film in its early stages before there's any music, you really miss it.

Q: You aren't perhaps the obvious choice for a Coen Brothers movie set in Texas. How did you get involved?
Macdonald: I was in New York and it was all very last minute for me to go in and see the casting director first of all. They were seeing me more as a courtesy thing, because my American agent was so persistent.
