Maureen Beattie

IT takes a moment to recognise Maureen Beattie without the dress. So striking was the image of her striding about the stage in a blood-red velvet gown in the acclaimed 2000 Edinburgh fringe production of Medea, that it’s hard to think of her without it. But today, as she embarks on a career as a director, she’s wearing inconspicuous rehearsal-room black.She’s easy to spot though. Nobody with such mesmerising icy blue eyes could go unrecognised for long. It’s the first thing anyone ever says about her: those pale hypnotic sapphires.

Billy Boyd

IMAGINE the scene. It's one night in Glasgow just after the first Lord of the Rings movie has come out. A gang of young lads leave the cinema and get on the bus home. That's when they see him. "Are you Pippin?" asks one incredulously. "Yes," says Billy Boyd, for it is he. "What're you doing on a bus?"

Billy Boyd interview

Interview with the Lord of the Rings actor about Sunshine on Leith. A Dundee Rep preview

IT WOULD be less of a problem if Billy Boyd wasn't such a big fan of the Proclaimers. The Lord Of The Rings star has landed a lead role in a revival of Dundee Rep's Sunshine On Leith, the superb musical based on the songs of Craig and Charlie Reid. It's a dream job - one that's lured him back to the theatre for the first time in six years - but getting his mind around arrangements that are not quite the same as the records he has loved for so long is proving tough work.

Agnieszka Bresler

WHEN Agnieszka Bresler followed her sister to Coatbridge she couldn’t have expected a better welcome. In the summer of 2005, they revelled in being the only Polish girls in town. Taxi drivers would know them just by reputation and they were made to feel at home wherever they went.

Tam Dean Burn

THE meeting was almost inevitable. On the one hand you have Harry Horse, the lead singer and banjo player in cult Edinburgh favourites Swamptrash. This is the man who would become a provocative Scotland on Sunday cartoonist as well as a lauded author of children's books. On the other hand you have Tam Dean Burn, the Edinburgh-born actor, musician and political activist . . .
