Are you ready to come face to face with Begbie once again? #T2Trainspotting


Much as we're thrilled to be venturing back into the Trainspotting world with this month's T2, there's one character who continues to inspire us with equal amounts nervous laughter and flat-out terror. We are of course talking about Robert Carlyle's peerless nutcase Francis Begbie, one of several familiar faces returning for Danny Boyle's sequel.

Yet as Carlyle explains in this behind the scenes video, the 20 year gap between the first Trainspotting and the new movie has invested Begbie with some unexpected new dimensions. Don't worry though: he still looks as intimidating as ever, as the flashes of behind the scenes footage make clear. 

Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Kelly Macdonald are all back for T2: Trainspotting, opening in Cineworld on 27th January.

Don't forget to book your tickets for Trainspotting, screening in advance of the sequel on 17th January.
