Margot Robbie And Kelly Macdonald Bring “Heart And Soul” To ‘Goodbye Chrisopher Robin’

goodbyechristopher6

Goodbye Christopher Robin centers on the relationship between author A.A.Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (Will Tiltson). Margot Robbie co-stars as Milne’s wife, who is tired of the country life and years for her previous life in London, while Kelly Macdonald is Olivia, a nanny who in Macdonald’s words, serves as the “heart and soul” of Christopher’s life.

With Daphne and Olivia playing the female figures in Christopher’s youth, they inevitably butt heads. Off screen,  however, the relationship between Robbie and Macdonald was just fine. “It was so good but I have to be horrible to her the whole time, which is kind of funny,” said Robbie. “Unfortunately our characters aren’t friends but off screen we had a great time together as did everyone. It was a really nice cast. It was a really nice crew and where we shot was so beautiful. It was quite perfect”

Goodbye Christopher Robin is now playing in select theaters.
