So here it is! Version two of Rain Dog: Robert Carlyle and we have worked hard to get this new version up! The last season of Once Upon a Time begins airing tomorrow, March 2nd and we are very excited about what the future holds for Bobby!

We have not just added a new layout but we have updated, added and fixed a lot of new content! We have a full filmography and information on all of Robert’s projects and you can either read about them listed here or through a timeline, sorted by year. Almost all other content has been updated and revamped as well.

We have added loads of new videos and many more are to come, we have added more photos to the gallery and we are working on adding DVD/Bluray sceencaptures from all projects and much more. We also added a “Support Us” page were we list projects we might be missing, magazines we can’t find and such, so please head over there to see if you might have some of the things we are lacking!

I want to say thanks to Kitam for helping me with some of the movie pages, Frederik for always being an inspiration and Kaci for being so incredible helpful and creating so many lovely graphics for the site!

Enjoy all the new content and keep coming back for more Robert! 😀

‘Rain Dog’ back online!

Welcome to Rain Dog!

I’ve decided to get the site back up online after some downtime and I’m working hard on getting the site back up and running with all its old content. So please be patient and look at the site as “work in progress”, as it always will be.

For you who haven’t been to the site before, Rain Dog first saw the light in the summer of 2003 and me and several contributors has been fans of Robert since the 90s and has followed his career since then. This site used to be online at the domains and but is now up on this domain.

The aim is to collect information, photos, videos, news and articles about Robert, in hopes to support his career!

Why a fansite? Well I work as a developer and every site I make is a learning process and this time I wanted to try and work on a project and get an apology to combine my huge interest in the art of movies and to be a bit geeky.

If you want to be a part of this project and help me out, please contact me at admin (at)

For now, enjoy your stay!
