LONDON, Jan 9: Actor Robert Carlyle cried when he read the script for “T2 Trainspotting” and said it was the first time his work had made him cry.
The 55-year-old actor will reprise his role as the psychopathic Francis Begbie in the highly-anticipated follow-up to the 1996 movie and was surprised by how emotional he and his co-stars felt when they were given the screenplay, reported Contactmusic.
“I was crying. I thought, ‘Why am I crying at this? Danny (Boyle, director) felt it, Ewan McGregor and Ewen Bremner felt it, Jonny Lee Miller; we all felt this real emotional connection to these characters and to this world.
“But that first read – I was speaking to Ewan saying, ‘I cannot believe I’m feeling like this. ”I’ve never cried when I’ve read a screenplay before. Ever.” (PTI)
