      If you have seen “Trainspotting” then you have been privy to the wonderful acting skills of Robert Carlyle. As Francis Begby, he demonstrated the superb ability to portray a completely sadistic, slightly psychotic Scotsman with a penchant for random violence. This role seems to be easily played by many different actors.

      But in this movie he seems to nail all the emotions exactly.

      I was quite impressed by how easily he was able to slip into an unexpected rage at the drop of a dime.

      I’d never seen any other films with him in it. So at the time that “Trainspotting” was released, I didn’t have anything to compare his acting skills to.

      But then eventually I saw him again “28 Weeks Later,” a horror sequel to ...

      • “28 Days Later. ” In this movie, he portrays a father who is reunited with his children after London has been evacuated due to a rage virus.

        Seeing him in this benign role just confirmed for me that he has the ability to tap into a range of emotions. He not only had to be a doting and loving father and husband, but also a rage-infected maniac.

        I’m sure that jumping between the two can’t be easy. But Carlyle nails the act completely.

        I know of another film he’s in called “Angela’s Ashes. ” I understand that this film is very poignant and moving.

        But I have not brought myself to watch it yet. However, I can tell from trailers that that film does even more to prove his fine acting ability.
