Robert Carlyle


First seen & adored (by me) in The Full Monty where he played the sweet & loveable Gaz. But he also plays a great bad guy, which seems difficult for a lot of actors to do without going overboard.


More recently, I recognized him immediately in Eragon and when I excitedly told my friend "That's Robert Carlyle!", she looked at me blanky and said "Who?". I guess he's not very well known to some but he's definitely one to watch.
Plus, he's Scottish. Nummers.

I KNOW A LOT PEOPLE ARE PROBABLY NOT WATCHING OlD POSTS BUT NONETHELESS,
I HAVE to put MY VOTE IN FOR R.C.!

HE HAS A SEXINESS THAT IS NOT 'IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE' WHICH TO ME MAKES HIM ALL THE MORE SEXY.

A LOT OF YOU MAY NOT HAVE CAUGHT HIM (AS A REAL LOSER BAD GUY ROLE(IN AN EARLY SHANE MEADOWS FILM, Once+Upon+a+Time+in+the+Midlands&id=ee3f7bbc-7a01-4d35-98ba-

WHO IS IN MY HUMBLE EXPAT OPINION, THE MOST OVERLOOKED BRIT FILM MAKER OUT THERE; HE IS OF COURSE WHAT IS KNOWN AS AN 'ACQUIRED TASTE' BUTT HIS FILMS ARE TOTALLY MY TASTE.

MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE IS TWENTYFOUR SEVEN; IF YOU SEE NOTHING ELSE OF HIS, DON'T MISS THIS ONE!
