Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Few film actors have built an entire career off a single performance. Yet Ewen Bremner, who is best known for his lively portrayal of a strung out junkie named "Spud" in Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting" (1996), is one such performer. "Trainspotting" received unanimous praise when it released in the winter of 1996, with Bremner receiving some of the best reviews of his career. The film, which was largely shot in Scotland and initially released in Britain, also opened numerous opportunities for the young actor in Hollywood. In the years that followed, he appeared in military blockbusters like "Black Hawk Down" (2001) and "Pearl Harbor" (2001), while maintaining his indie roots with acclaimed performances in "Snatch" (2000) and "Match Point" (2005), the latter of which was directed by Woody Allen.
