Known for his often intense performances in the dramas My Name is Joe and Tyranosaur, actor Peter Mullan has also appeared in movies such as Trainspotting and the final parts of the Harry Potter series and TV series like Top of the Lake. Mullan is in addition an accomplished director, with his 2002 film The Magdalene Sisters taking the top prize at Venice and helping win belated recognition for the “fallen” women whose terrible story it recounts. The charismatic, working class Glaswegian, who studied economic history alongside acting at university, is a Socialist and supporter of Scottish independence. Peter Mullan has just been in Prague as a special guest of Febiofest. When we sat down at the film festival, I began by asking him which actors had really grabbed him when he was young. “Spencer Tracy, Bogart and Edward G. Robinson. And Cagney. Nobody dies like Jimmy Cagney. “For me the greatest death scenes there’s ever been is Cagney on those church steps in The Roaring Twenties and the amazing one in Angels with Dirty Faces. “Bogart just because he was Bogart – he was cool as all-get-out. Spencer Tracy – I remember even as a kid thinking he was the greatest actor in the world. “But also like anybody I loved Ronald Coleman, I loved Clark Gable. Of the men, that is. ”. When you started acting what were you finding in acting that you weren’t getting elsewhere. “The right to act with impunity. You can smash a car and they shout cut and you’ll have policemen giving you the thumbs up. “You can strangle someone you’ve just been having lunch with. You can strangle them and people say cut and you can go straight back to the chat you were having when you were having lunch. No other job on earth offers you that. “It’s without doubt – and I really do mean this – the greatest job on earth. When you started university – you had had a few years on the streets running with a gang, you had a tough home life – you must have really stood out from your peers, who I guess were probably mainly middle class. I remember not long after I graduated I started teaching at the university and I said to one of the lecturers – it was at the college club, where all the academics went. “I said, Listen, looking back – and I’m saying this when I’m 23, talking about when I was 17 – why was it in tutorials no-one ever disagreed with me, including you. “Without hesitation she said, Oh, I was terrified of you [laughs].
