Did You Know?


Paul Brannigan very nearly didn't appear in the film as he failed to turn up to the first casting session. Brannigan was going through a lot of personal issues at the time and eventually came on board after writer Paul Laverty tracked him down.


When Harry is discussing Robbie's life of crime with him, he says that Robbie wouldn't want to miss his son growing up. This is discussed before the child is born. Later, when Luke (Robbie's son) is born, it is clear that no one knew that he would be a boy before the event.
