Irvine Welsh on Crime season 2
With the help of Dean Cavanagh, the author has modified his own paper for the screen and is looking forward to working with Dougray Scott once more.
I liked working on the first season ofand Dean Cavanagh and myself are already having a great time developing scripts for the second series. It was fantastic to work with such a talented cast and we hope to push those memorable characters further this time. No longer a Mister Nice Guy from Dean and I. Dougray Scott is pleased to be returning in Scotland filming the crime sequel...
I''m happy that I can continue playing this complex and dynamic character, and to once more get to work with this amazing creative team. Season 2 takes us even deeper into Lennox''s past, and assists him to understand his persona even more. I couldn''t be happier!
