Posted September 9, 2018 Celebrates 15 Years!

This summer, Rain Dog: Robert Carlyle celebrated 15 years online! The site was originally started as a smaller fanlisting back in 2001/2002 but became a full and comprehensive site on June 20, 2003.

After some downtime back and forth the site is here to stay and it’s a bit crazy to think that I started the site back as a teenager 🙂 The site has also been on different domains, including, and now as you know, it’s on

I hope you enjoy the site and that you will keep coming back for for the latest news on Robert Carlyle’s career and also the latest photos and videos!

For Robert’s birthday

I’m posting about this a bit late but I have been busy with working on the gallery so I wasn’t keeping myself as updated as I should be 🙂

On Roberts birthday a lot of kind and sweet fans compiled a birthday wishes video for Robert and he saw/listened to it. It was a lot of fans sending him voice messages wishing him a happy birthday. Very fun idea and I’m sure he was really happy to receive it!

This is what he commented:

Wow.. this is amazing! sorry i missed it! and thank you so much!

A cause that Robert has supported as well is Seamab who helps less fortunate and vulnerable children in Scotland and together several fans helped to raise £264 and the organisation got 27 new donors! The numbers has probably raised since and it’s fantastic!
