Interview With Kelly Macdonald About Brave

Brave's Kelly Macdonald on Being Pixar's First Heroine

This Friday when Brave hits theaters, audiences will meet Merida, Disney Pixar's first heroine. The storied studio has never had a girl star in its 12 animated films, but that will change with Merida, a headstrong princess of the ancient Scottish kingdom of DunBroch, determined to change her destiny. Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald, who has starred in Boardwalk Empire and No Country For Old Men, is the voice of Merida, who comes to life on screen with wild red hair and enviable archery skills. Unlike Disney princesses of the past, Merida is strictly opposed to landing a prince charming, which causes her to clash with her elegant and duty-minded mother, Queen Elinor. I traveled to Scotland to interview the stars and makers of Brave, and sat down with Kelly Macdonald, a mother herself, to talk about what it was like to play Pixar's first leading lady, how she relates to the characters as a daughter and a mother, and what it means to be brave. Watch now, and enjoy Kelly's beautiful Scottish accent!
