British actor Robert Carlyle has admitted he is "wary" about making the 'Trainspotting' sequel
Robert Carlyle is "wary" of the 'Trainspotting' sequel.
The 54-year-old actor - who starred alongside Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller in the 1996 original - has signed on to appear in the sequel, but admits to feeling anxious about the prospect.
He shared: "It's nerve-wracking to a certain extent, because I'm obviously aware of just how much people loved the original film.
"People still quote lines to me on a f**king daily basis. I get it everywhere; I can't f**king escape it! But I'm grateful for it too - [my character] Begbie has been f**king terrific for me and my career.
"So therefore - and I think probably if you asked the rest of the boys, they'd feel the same - I'm slightly wary about it all."
Despite this, Robert claimed the script for the Danny Boyle-directed movie is one of the best he's ever read.
He told NME magazine: "We've already had a read-through of the script, we did that in the springtime. You're going to think, 'Of course he's going to say this,' but honestly, it's one of the best scripts I've f**king read. I mean, ever."
