How did the actor Tommy Flanagan get his scars?


According to actor Tommy Flanagan, he got the scar across his face as the result of a mugging while he was working as a DJ in Scotland in his twenties, prior to starting his acting career. The scar itself is commonly referred to as a "Glasgow Smile" in that it is the result of a cut from one ear to the other across the face.

Thankfully for those who enjoy his work, Tommy Flanagan has time and again taken on roles where his unique appearance is more of a benefit than a liability. In the acting industry, it is often a selling point for a professional to have a memorable face, and he definitely does have that. Unfortunately, this can often lead to being typecast in roles, but every now and then, Flanagan steps forward with a character who is both gritty and endearing, such as his current role on FX's "Sons of Anarchy." Though he has played many unsavory characters in his career, Flanagan's first real break was in 1995 when Mel Gibson spotted him during a stage performance and cast him in the movie "Braveheart." Ever since, Flanagan has been a strong character actor and a valuable part of every movie for which he has been cast.
