Robert Carlyle in "Flood" (Spoilers for film)

So I've decided to spam you guys with more pics of my favorite actor, Robert Carlyle.  A few months back, I uploaded some screencaps of Robert crying in the movie "Flood" (2007) to my photobucket account, and I thought I should share.  The film itself was just was a bit lengthy, and not amazingly well written IMO, but it's kind of a fun disaster movie, and Robert's crying scene at the end is superb.

Interestingly enough, I found more details about this particular scene in a (written) interview done with Robert done back in 2007.  Apparently, Robert's father (whom he was extremely close to) died, very suddenly, six weeks before he began filming this movie.  In this scene, Robert's character has just lost his own father.  According to Robert, when he had to cry for this scene, he was no longer just playing a character - he was having a genuine emotional release of his own feelings surrounding his father's death.  Supposedly many members of the cast and crew found it very difficult to watch Robert play this scene.  Personally, I would have loved to have been around to give him a hug.

Edited to add - last time I checked, this movie was available on youtube as well.  HOWEVER, the version that has been uploaded to youtube has been cut for TV - the original movie is around three or so hours long, the TV version about half that length.  So the crying scene (as well as many other scenes) has been drastically shortened.

Wow, that's a pretty intense situation.  I can see why the cast and crew found it so hard to watch.  But a great use of the emotion, from a professional standpoint (the closer to real, the more real it is!)  And sounds like it was a release for him.  Still, it couldn't have been easy for him, only 6 weeks after the fact.
