Gary’s on the run

Castlemilk ac­tor do­ing his bit for char­ity

for Pud­sey.

“Ev­ery penny they raise sup­ports great work in Scot­land and no mat­ter who crosses the fin­ish line first, they are al­ready fundrais­ing he­roes.”

BBC Chil­dren in Need is the Bank of Scot­land’s Char­ity of the Year for 2015 and 2016 and the Great Scot­tish Run is a high­light of the fundrais­ing year.

Start­ing in Ge­orge Square, the course fea­tures fa­mous venues from last year’s Com­mon­wealth Games as well as tak­ing run­ners across the River Clyde, through Pol­lok Park and Bel­la­hous­ton Park be­fore head­ing back for the grand­stand fin­ish on Glas­gow Green.

Gary grew up in Castlemilk and at­tended Castlemilk High be­fore per­su­ing his dream of be­com­ing an ac­tor.

He got his big break when he landed the role of Rob­bie Fraser in the BBC soap River City back in 2009.

As hair­dresser Rob­bie he’s been in­volved in some of the soap’s most ex­plo­sive plots, from suf­fer­ing do­mes­tic abuse at the hands of his part­ner to at­tempt­ing to adopt a child.

Gary’s also ap­peared in var­i­ous other pro­duc­tions, in­clud­ing a panto stint at the Pav­il­ion Theatre in Glas­gow.
