Trivia / Hamish Macbeth

  • Playing Against Type: A retroactive example, but since he since rose to prominence as Begby in Trainspotting (which was released not long after the show began) Robert Carlyle tends to be cast either as the Violent Glaswegian or as a rather morally ambiguous or outright villainous type. Which makes a lazy but fundamentally kind-hearted rural small-town Scottish policeman something of a departure.
