After over 50 years as an actor, James Cosmo is one of the most recognisable faces on the big and small screen.
By the time his breakthrough role came along in Braveheart (1995), he’d already starred in nine films and over 70 TV movies and series. Those craggy features and powerful build have meant frequent tough guy roles, whether on horseback or in an urban setting. In his latest film, The Pyramid Texts, he takes on the role of a lifetime, a former boxer delivering a heart rending monologue.
Filmoria’s Freda Cooper talked to him about working with his son on the film, that appearance on Celebrity Big Brother and the role he’s never played – so far!
The Pyramid Texts is released on digital platforms on Friday 28th April. Read our review here.
James Cosmo will also be seen in Whiskey Galore, in cinemas from May 19th, with a 2 week preview in Scotland from May 5th.
