Peter was born the seventh out of eight children into the working class family of lab technician Charles and nurse Patricia Mullan. Peter had a difficult childhood growing up in Glasgow, often oppressed by his alcoholic father. During his teenage years, he was a member of a local gang, sometimes living homeless, and working as a bouncer in pubs and clubs. However, he managed to overcome all these issues, and enrolled at Glasgow University, from which he obtained his BA degree, majoring in drama and economic history. During his studies, Peter discovered his passion for acting, and in 1988 debuted in “The Steamie” TV movie; this performance provided the real basis for Peter Mullan’s net worth.

After appearing in several movies as a supporting actor, in 1991 Mullan was cast in Ken Loach’s critically acclaimed comical drama film “Riff-Raff”. In 1994 he was cast for Danny Boyle’s thriller “Shallow Grave”, while in 1995 he opposed Mel Gibson in the historical drama about one of the Scotland’s greatest heroes, William Wallace – “Braveheart”. After appearing in another Danny Boyle motion picture, the 1996 cult movie “Trainspotting”, in 1998 Peter was cast for the leading role of Joe Kavanagh in the romantic drama “My Name Is Joe”, for which he was nominated for a British Independent Film Award, and honored with the Cannes Film Festival’s Best Actor Award. All these ventures helped Peter Mullan to add a notable sum to his wealth.

In 2004 Mullan was cast for the recurring role of Michael Scot in the “Shoebox Zoo” TV series, while in 2005 he portrayed the main character in “On a Clear Day” movie. In 2006 he opposed Clive Owen in the triple Oscar-nominated movie “Children of Men”, which was followed by the leading role in the drama movie “True North” later that year. Between 2008 and 2009, Peter was engaged on “The Fixer” TV series, and in 2010 he had a supporting role in the seventh movie of the Harry Potter franchise “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”. In 2011, Peter starred in the leading role of BAFTA-winning drama “Tyrannosaur” and also appeared in Steven Spielberg’s war drama film “War Horse”. It is certain that all these accomplishments made a positive impact on Peter Mullan’s net worth.

In the last couple of years, Mullan has added several memorable performances to his professional portfolio, including leading roles in movies such as “The Man Inside” (2012), “Sunset Song” and “Hector” both in 2015, as well as “Tommy’s Honour” (2016). He has also appeared in recurring roles in TV series such as “The Fear”, “Mum” and “Quarry”, as well as most recently in Netflix’s crime drama series “Ozark”.

In addition to those already mentioned, Peter Mullan has written and directed several award-winning movies, including the 1998 comical drama “Orphans”, which won several awards at the Venice Film Festival, the 2002 controversial drama “The Magdalene Sisters”, and 2010 drama movie “Neds”. Doubtlessly, all these involvements and achievements have helped Peter to dramatically increase the total size of his wealth.

When it comes to his personal life, Mullan was married from 1989 to a colleague, actress and a scriptwriter Ann Swan with whom he welcomed four children before they divorced in 2006. Since 2007 he has been married to Robina Qureshi.

Apart from acting, Mullan has also been actively involved in politics as an avid left-wing supporter, self-described as a Marxist, and gained huge media attention in 2014 for supporting the Scottish independence campaign.

1Braveheart (1995) was a real big deal. In our lifetime we had never seen the Scots as the heroes. They were always the funny guy or the drunk or whatever.
2I worked with murderers for a long time after I left university - one thing you realise about the gangs and the criminals is that it's acting by another means. If you go into a bank or a shop and you want them to believe that you're going to shoot them, that's an acting exercise. If you want to turn to someone else who's as tooled up as you are and persuade them to put their knife down because you'll use your knife, that's an acting exercise. Nine out of 10 delinquents are frustrated actors.
3But once you're in the movie business, that's where you meet the real criminals. You meet the guys who no law will ever prosecute - these are the studio bosses, the guys who swan around town with £80m yachts.
4Most actors I know come from a screwed up background, so it makes sense that if you can walk on to a space and recreate your reality, then that's the place that will become very dear. And what I love about actors and the bohemian scene, for all that a lot of us are wankers, there's a genuine classlessness and there's no discrimination on the basis of sexuality, colour, religion. We're by no means the perfect species but on the whole we're a pretty nice bunch of people to be around...
5In the acting game, you spend a long time fighting against what the director perceives you to be. And half the time the directors don't know.
1Attended the premiere of the independent film In Search of La Che (2011) by accident.
2Was a leading figure in the left-wing theatre movement.
