Life Story of Robert Carlyle

Robert Carlyle was born in Maryhill, Glasgow, Scotland, to Elizabeth, a bus company employee, and Joseph Carlyle, a painter and decorator. He was raised by his father after his mother left him when he was four. At the age of 21, after reading Arthur Miller's "The Crucible," he enrolled in acting classes at the Glasgow Arts Centre. In 1991, together with four other actors, he founded the Raindog theatre company (named after Tom Waits' album "Rain Dog," one of Carlyle's favorites), a company dedicated to innovative work.

He missed out on Christopher Eccleston's roles in Shallow Grave (1994) and 28 Days Later... (2002), both of which were directed by Danny Boyle. They did appear together in the Cracker (1993) storyline "To Be A Somebody".
