Boardwalk Empire fans will recall that Margaret Schroeder Thompson was pregnant in Season 3. She had an affair with her husband’s right-hand man, Owen Sleater, and was planning to leave her husband and run away to St. Louis. But Owen was killed in the line of duty, so to speak. She left her husband anyway and went to see a doctor about rectifying her problem. Margaret already has two children, Emily and Teddy.
Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald, who plays Margaret, was actually pregnant in real life. She is married to Travis guitarist Dougie Payne. Kelly had her second child in her native Glasgow on December 8th and she named her second son Theodore.
We think it’s just a big coincidence that her new baby boy got the same name as her Boardwalk Empire son. Margaret and her husband Dougie already have a son called Freddie, so it seems a lot more like that they were looking at rhyming nicknames there. A big congrats to the whole family.
Fikkle Fame freely admits that we rarely have anything nice to say about Kelly’s character Margaret (for lack of understanding what her beef with Nucky is), but that doesn’t mean we don’t think that Kelly does a fine job of portraying Margaret.
