IT was a dram good show from Scots actor Robert Carlyle yesterday.
He became the toast of the silver screen for the second time in four
years as he was voted best actor at the Bowmore Scottish Screen Awards.
He was presented with a case of 21-year-old malt whisky at a swish
ceremony at One Devonshire Gardens in Glasgow.
But the actor joked: “This is fantastic, but do you think I could get a
key to open the first one – I’ve lost it.”
Carlyle was voted tops by the cinema-going public for his roles in
Angela’s Ashes, The World is Not Enough and The Beach.
Other Scots honoured were Valerie Edmonds, voted best actress for
Saving Grace, for which Craig Ferguson won best film maker.
A Bowmore spokesman said: “It goes to show our great Scottish talent.”
