The star of Trainspotting, Rome and Grey’s Anatomy Kevin McKidd has come over all patriotic in the new Pixar film Brave. He tells Roe McDermott about voice-work, being a parent and honouring his Scottish roots through his music.
It’s hard to overstate just how damn charming Kevin McKidd is. Wandering around a grand Edinburgh manor like a Scottish – and therefore even more swoon-worthy – Jane Austen hero, the star of Trainspotting, Rome and Grey’s Anatomy is unerringly polite and friendly to everyone he meets. And as if the trail of star-struck women (and now sexually confused men) in his wake wasn’t enough to assure you that this actor has got something, let me tell you - the boy can dance. In celebration of the new Disney/Pixar film Brave, the kind folks at Disney threw an amazing shindig up in Scotland, complete with traditional music, traditional food (yes, I tried the haggis), and of course, a traditional Scottish ceili. Until you’ve been flung around a dancefloor by a skilled Kevin McKidd and a not-so-skilled John Lassiter, you haven’t lived, my friend.
