  • ✪ Gary Lewis read’s Conscientious Objector Robert Climie’s letter to his daughter Cathie


22nd November 1917 Cruachan, Taynuilt, Argyll My Darling Baby Girl, Your Daddy sends you his most fond love and wishes you very much happiness on the occasion of you having reached the first anniversary of your birthday. The first year of your life has been a year, which will in later years be known as one of the worst years in the history of the world. Nearly all the nations of the world are at enmity and the most fearful war is raging. Men have failed to realise that they are all children of one Fatherland and they are at present killing and maiming each other. The world is just now divided into nations and the people of each nation presently at war believe themselves to be fighting on behalf of their own particular country, Germany against France and so on. In each of these countries, however, there are men and women who have saw a clearer vision and who believe that all men and women are brothers and sisters. These people are known as Pacifists. They believe that all wars are wrong and that it is wrong for men to slay each other. Believing so, they cannot take part in this present fearful war. The people of this country and other countries who have the 'Reins of Government' in their power at this present time have endeavoured to force every man to take part in the war; but the pacifists refused to be compelled to do so. The authorities placed these men in prison. Your Daddy is one of those men who believed that war and bloodshed was wrong and that there should be Universal Peace and Love throughout all the world. A few days after you were born he was forced away from his loved ones at home, and as he would not be a soldier he was sent to prison for four months and when that time had passed he was kept at a place a hundred miles from home and his baby girl. Your mother and I both believe that it is wrong for men and women to fight. We realise that it is only when men and women refuse to bear arms and settle the disputes by reasoning quietly with each other that there is hope of the peoples of the world living happily and peacefully with each another. Daddy knows his dear love child won't understand this letter now. But when she grows up she may then be able to understand why her Daddy was not at home during the early days of her life although he did so much wanted to be. Twenty one months ago when Daddy and Mammie felt they would like to have a baby of their own, they little realised the fullness of joy that would be theirs. During the months prior to your birth when you were in your mother's body close to her heart, she and I felt so happy. We looked forward most eagerly to the time when you would make our lives so full of joy and be the blessing which you have been. The 'Coming Home of a Baby' - a first baby, especially, is an event most sacred and for that the preparations are made many months in advance. The days when your pretty 'First Clothes' were being made were very happy and when you did come home our cup of happiness was overflowing. A baby's birth causes mother to be ill and to suffer; but the joy and the love for the baby makes her forget all her pain. My precious baby I know will be a treasure to her mother and a comforter during the absence of her Daddy. Very soon, he hopes to be back beside his wee girl and her dear mother again. He is glad to know his wee Cathy is growing so big and strong. Sweetest love and kisses, Your very fond Daddy The enclosures are Daddy's birthday gifts.


Early life

Gary Lewis was born Gary Stevenson on 30 November 1957 in Easterhouse, Glasgow. The middle of three children, his father was a coppersmith whilst his mother worked in a local biscuit factory.[1] After leaving school, he worked a series of jobs including as a street sweeper and in a library.[2] He completed a social science degree at Glasgow College of Technology (now Glasgow Caledonian University), graduating with honours in 1983.[3] Encouraged by his high school English teacher, Lewis read voraciously and eventually decided to pursue a career as an actor.[1][2]



In 1979, Lewis starred in writer Freddy Anderson's Fringe First Award-winning play Krassivy, which was based upon the life of Socialist school teacher John Maclean.[1] Although he had pursued amateur theatrics, Lewis was 32 when he committed to acting, joining Robert Carlyle's newly formed Raindog Theatre.[3] During his time with Raindog, he performed in plays such as One Flew Over the Cockoo's Nest, Ecstacy, and Wasted.[1][2] He also worked with the 7:84 Theatre Company on The Grapes of Wrath,The Arches Theatre Company's production of Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party, and starred in One Two Hey by Glaswegian author James Kelman.[2]


In 1993, with the support of his friend actor-director Peter Mullan, Lewis was cast in the short film Close.[2] After working together on the short, both actors appeared in Danny Boyle's 1994 thriller Shallow Grave, alongside Ewan McGregor and Christopher Eccleston.[4] Lewis went on to feature in Mullan's subsequent shorts Good Day for the Bad Guys (1995) and the award-winning Fridge (1996).[2][5][6]

Lewis joined director Kenneth Loach's unofficial stock company lending support to his two mentors in separate films: with Robert Carlyle, he co-starred in Carla's Song (1996), while he played a recovering alcoholic alongside Mullan in My Name Is Joe (1998).[7][8][9] Between the two films, Lewis was featured in Sigma Films' short California Sunshine (1997) before again working with Mullan, who cast Lewis as over-righteous elder sibling Thomas in Orphans (1998), an examination of a dysfunctional family.[10][11][12] That same year he was featured in director Albert Pyun's independent film Postmortem, director Sean McGuire's short film The Good Son, director Kenny Glenaan's short The Whirlpool, short film The Lucky Suit opposite Robert Carlyle, and screenwriter Barry Gornell's short film Sonny's Pride.[13][14][15][16][17]

1999 saw Lewis feature in Ayub Kham Din's dramatic comedy East is East, and Bill Forsyth's comedy Gregory's Two Girls.[18][19] He went on to star with Max Beesley in The Match (1999; released on video in the US in 2001) before landing his international breakthrough part as the father of a young boy who wants to become a ballet dancer in Billy Elliot (2000).[20] Lewis delivered a multi-layered turn as a man coping with grief over the death of his wife, a violent strike that threatens his livelihood, and the struggles of raising two sons.[21] In 2000, Lewis starred in May Miles Thomas' drama One Life Stand, which premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival, and featured opposite Michael Caine as a boxing coach who was possibly involved in a murder in Shiner, which screened at the San Sebastian Film Festival.[22][23] The actor rounded out the year with several short films including What Where, a 12-minute short with Sean McGinley based upon Samuel Beckett's play of the same name, director David Mackenzie's Marcie's Dowry,The Elevator alongside Ashley Walters, Long Haul alongside Simone Lahbib, Clean with actor Stephen McCole, and director David McKay's Caesar.[24][25][26][27][28] He went on to an additional short film in 2001, Rob of the Rovers, which followed a day in the life of gym teacher Rob Meadows.[29]

Lewis worked with director Giles MacKinnon twice in 2002. Revenge thriller The Escapist, which featured Lewis in the role of Ron, was followed by a turn as Detective Inspector French in the crime drama Pure.[30][31] He went to Rome's Cinecittà Studios to join the ensemble cast of Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York, an epic tale of gang warfare among the lower classes in 1860's New York City. Lewis portrayed the character of McGloin, and Irish-American meant to embody the shift in mid-nineteenth century attitudes towards other immigrants.[32][33]

Another solid year in film, 2003 brought three stylistically different roles for Lewis. The first was Posh Pictures' The Fall of Shug McCracken, which tackled the subject of employee theft and labor Unions.[25] Next was Danish director Soren Kragh-Jacobsen's film Skagerrak, a romantic drama set in Scotland, which saw Lewis in a supporting role as a local Glaswegian.[34] The last, a film noir drama from writer/director May Miles Thomas titled Solid Air, centered on the relationship between a sickly father (Maurice Roeves) and his compulsive gambler son (Brian McCardie).[35]

Once again teaming up with director Kenneth Loach, Lewis featured in the 2004 love story Ae Fond Kiss..., which takes its name from a Robert Burns poem.[36] That same year, he had a turn in director Friðrik Þór Friðriksson's drama Niceland (Population 1.000.002) alongside Peter Capaldi and Kerry Fox.[37] His next project was director Stephen Whittaker's Rocket Post. Filmed on the island of Taransay, Scotland, the film explores a German scientist's idea to deliver mail via rockets in the late 1930s.[38][39] Director Peter Timm's film My Brother Is a Dog, features Lewis as the Antiquitätenhändler in a sweet film about a young girl wishing for a dog.[40] Lewis ended the year with two films centering on the post 9/11 rift between the Western and Arab worlds. First was a supporting role in writer Simon Beaufoy's Yasmin, set in Northern England before and after the 9/11 attacks.[41] Second was Sally Potter's fourth feature film Yes, which views the post traumatic rift through the lens of two lovers caught in the divide.[42]

In 2005, Lewis starred in Christian Carion's international production of the film Joyeux Noël. Set in WWI, the film explores the "Christmas Truce" of 1914 between the armies of three countries.[43] In a departure from previous films, Lewis was next featured in director Danny Cannon's football film Goal! The Dream Begins, which focuses on a Mexican football player trying out for the Newcastle United Football Club.[44] Clive Gordon's 2006 film Cargo, a psychological thriller, featured Lewis opposite Daniel Bruhl and Peter Mullan.[45] As the skipper of a bankrupt Scottish fishing trawler in True North, Lewis and actor Martin Compston tackle the subject of migrant smuggling and the effects it has on those making the journey.[46] Rounding out the year, Lewis was featured as Hrothgar in 20th Century Fox's live action adaptation of author Christopher Paolini's hit fantasy trilogy Eragon.[47]

The 2008 British black comedy Three and Out (released as A Deal Is A Deal in Australia), from director Johnathan Gershfield, saw Lewis in the supporting role of Callaghan. The film focuses on a train conductor who tries to use a little known three strikes rule of the London train service to force an early retirement and payout for himself.[48] Screened at the Edinburgh Film Festival, Lewis' next film was director Robert Rae's debut film Trouble Sleeping, which tells the story of a Palestinian refugee's struggles in the UK.[49][50] Psychological thriller Dorothy Mills, helmed by Agnes Merlet, featured Lewis as the brainwashing pastor of a small community on a bleak Irish island.[51] His last film of 2008 was director Mark Aldridge's feel-good drama Blessed, alongside James Nesbitt and Lil Woods.[52]

Reprising the role of Mal Braithwaite, Lewis began 2009 with the third installment of Andrew Morahan's football series entitled Goal! III: Taking On the World.[53] Wasted, his next film from filmmakers Caroline Paterson and Stuart Davids, tackled the subject of homelessness in Glasgow, Scotland.[54] From there he went on to feature in the Danish film Valhalla Rising, alongside Mads Mikkelson, and director Christian Carion's Cold War thriller Farewell (L'Affaire Farewell).[55][56] Lewis returned to short films in 2010 with director Tom Shrapnel's Eat Me, Tribeca Film Festival Judge's Award nominee The Terms, Robert James Armstrong's Little Green Bag, and Vocation opposite James Chalmers.[57] He was also featured in Peter Mullan's gang drama Neds.[58]

2011 showcased Lewis in two additional short films. The first, from writer/director Raisah Ahmed and titled Last Order, featured Lewis alongside Leann O'Kasi and David Elliot.[59] The second was writer/director Gregor Johnstone's comedy Rule of Thumb, which saw Lewis as the school janitor during a disastrous standoff.[60] In 2012, Lewis starred in two feature films. The Strange Case of Wilhelm Reich, which explored psychiatrist Wilhem Reich's career and subsequent investigation by the FDA and other Government agencies, saw Lewis in the role of Dr. Donald Cameron, who was President of the American, Canadian and World Psychiatric Associations.[61][62] When the Lights Went Out starred Lewis as Father Clifford, a local priest who performs an exorcism on a house plagued by a poltergeist. The film is based on the real-life experiences of director Pat Holden's mother and aunt in 1970's West Yorkshire.[63] Lewis then went on to star in Andrew Griffin's short film The Gift (2012), which was screened at the New York International Independent Film Festival in 2013.[64]

Thirteen years after first working with May Thomas Miles in One Life Stand, Lewis reunited with the writer/director in 2013 for the film version of her BAFTA winning interactive website The Devil's Plantation.[65][66] Both the website and film are based on archaeologist Harry Bell's belief that Glasgow, Scotland was laid out based upon a secret, hidden design he called the Secret Geometry. Lewis starred as Bell, opposite Kate Dickie’s psychiatric patient Mary Ross, as their lives intertwine.[67] He then appeared in Scottish romantic comedy Not Another Happy Ending as Benny Lockhart opposite Karen Gillan and fellow Outlander alumni Stanley Weber.[68] Director Alberto Arvelo's The Liberator, the story of Venezuelan freedom fighter Simón Bolívar, featured Lewis as Colonel Rooke of the Irish Brigade while director John S. Baird's psychological police drama Filth saw Lewis guest star as Gus.[69][70] Later that year, Lewis featured in Luca Barbareschi's The Mercury Factor, which takes on the worldwide issue of adulterated food.[71] Returning to independent films at the conclusion of 2013, Lewis next starred with Teresina Moscatiello in the German production Waiting and in writer Marcus McPeake's short film For Gracie.[72][73]

First-time British director Daniel Wolfe's thriller Catch Me Daddy (2014), which screened at the Director's Fortnight strand and focused on a teenager and her boyfriend who flee from her overbearing father, portrays Lewis as hired thug Tony, who is sent to retrieve the runaways.[74] 2015 saw Lewis once again return to short films, working twice with director Gordon Napier. The first was the short drama La Chasse, in which Lewis portrayed the protagonist's deceased father through a voice over.[75] Second was the 25-minute short Tide, which saw Lewis star as lobster fisherman Alasdaire as he watches the life he knew erode into more modern practices.[75][76] Lewis rounded out the year by featuring in director Joshua J. Krull's German language short film The Heavy Load.[77]

Lewis' first professional role, in 1993, was in BBC's anthology series Screen One, in a feature-length episode entitled Down Among the Big Boys.
