Craig Fairbrass

We here at HeyUGuys always love a good chat with Craig Fairbrass, this time to promote the latest film from the popular Rise of the Footsoldier movie series. The latest, entitled “Vengeance”, sees the actor reprise the fan-favourite role of Pat Tate.

We discussed the popularity of the character, and what audiences can expect from this latest entry. He also talks about the talented ensemble, while looking back to Cliffhanger, a film that means a lot to the actor, and recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. He also looks ahead, to the exciting new crime series Boat Story.

Watch the full interview with Craig Fairbrass here:

Correction: Craig accidentally referred to Boat Story co-star Joanna Scanlan as “Patricia”, and has since reached out to correct the mistake.


Pat Tate (Craig Fairbrass, Cliffhanger) embarks on a rampage to avenge his loyal and trusted footsoldier’s violent death, venturing beyond his comfort zone of Essex into the dark side of 90s Soho to track down the villain responsible. Set to execute his revenge, Tate will stop at nothing even as the world around him starts to explode.
