One of about 200 extras on a film shot in Dublin cerca 2000 which I have never ever seen called “The Escapist” starring Johnny Lee Miller and Andy Serkis.
I also was an extra and was as dirty as this poor sod who was from Scotland as far as I remember. He might have been called Ian? I’ll post to the Scots are Coming guys and see if anybody recognises him.

Taken with an Olympus Miu which has been my favourite ever camera.

I got the film via Amazon at last. Well. Hmm. By high standards; an awful film. By TV standards an entertaining if unbelievable (plot holes, suspension of disbelief, no sense) hour and a whatever with an angry Johhny Lee. Best bit was an almost murder in the prison showers.
