Profile Bio Text
Robert Carlyle, OBE (born 14 April 1961) is a Scottish film and television actor. He is most known for his work in Trainspotting, The World is Not Enough, and The Full Monty. He is currently starring as Doctor Nicholas Rush in Stargate Universe. Carlyle was born in Maryhill, Glasgow, the son of Elizabeth, a bus company employee, and Joseph Carlyle, a painter and decorator. He was brought up by his father after his mother left when Carlyle was four years old. He left school at 16 without qualifications and went to work for his father as a painter and decorator, however he continued his education by attending night classes at Cardonald College in Glasgow.
Carlyle became involved in drama at the Glasgow Arts Centre at the age of 21 (having been inspired by reading Arthur Miller`s The Crucible), and subsequently graduated from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. In 1991, he and four friends founded an acting company and guest starred in The Bill. He first came to the attention of the public as murderer Albie Kinsella in an episode of Cracker opposite Robbie Coltrane (in which he killed the character DCI David Bilborough, played by Christopher Eccleston). He soon landed the role of Highland policeman Hamish Macbeth in the eponymous BBC comedy-drama. In 1994, he played the gay lover of Father Greg in the film Priest.
In 1996 and 1997, he appeared in the two most high-profile roles of his career to date: that of the sociopathic Francis Begbie in Trainspotting and Gaz, the leader of a group of amateur male strippers, in The Full Monty, the latter earning Carlyle a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. He also starred with Ray Winstone in the 1997 film Face. Carlyle played the senior Malachy McCourt (father of author Frank McCourt) in the 1999 film adaptation of McCourt`s first memoir, Angela’s Ashes, the villainous Renard in the 1999 James Bond film The World Is Not Enough, a cannibalistic soldier in the 1999 Ravenous, and Adolf Hitler in the 2003 miniseries Hitler: The Rise of Evil. Carlyle appeared in the 2002 Oasis promotional music video to "Little By Little". In 2008 he also narrated a BBC audiobook version of The Cutting Room.
He is married to the makeup artist Anastasia Shirley with whom he has three children. The family lives in Scotland. Carlyle is a supporter of Partick Thistle Football Club.
