ROBERT CAR­LYLE

DECORATOR & WAREHOUSE WORKER

Empire (UK) - - ON.SCREEN -

“I was a painter-decorator. It’s no real fun. Peo­ple’s im­age of that is a per­son hang­ing off a build­ing shout­ing at women in the sum­mer. Imag­ine them in the same build­ing in the win­ter, when the fuckin’ paint­brush is fuckin’ welded to your hand with the cold. That’s the other side to it. That was pretty hor­rific. That was what my fa­ther and my un­cles and my grand­fa­ther did — the Car­lyles are known for that. I also worked in an au­to­mo­tive com­po­nent place, a warehouse filled with car parts. At the be­gin­ning of the day all these guys in suits would come in and hand you a piece of pa­per and you’d walk up and down these aisles try­ing to find these fuckin’ things, and I can’t tell you how fuckin’ cold it was. It was al­ways freez­ing cold. So my shit jobs have re­ally been to do with Robert Car­lyle ver­sus the fuckin’ cold, re­ally. I could bore you with an­other 20 of them.”
