Which ‘T2 Trainspotting’ character are you?

Choose... wisely.

Next week (January 27) the long-awaited and much-talked about Trainspotting sequel, T2 Trainspotting will hit cinemas. It’s been 21 years since the lads graced our screen and so much has changed.

‘Choose life’ is out of the timeless monologue, and ‘Choose Twitter’ is in. The hedonistic days of ‘Cool Britannia’ are all but a distant memory, and instead it’s Brexit Britain that’ll provide the context for the new film. The soundtrack has been updated too, but the characters will certainly remain – Renton, Sick Boy, Begbie and Spud.

They’re what made original so iconic, and the sequel so enjoyable (we liked it a lot). As heroin ravaged their friendship group, a group of unforgettable, relatable and sometimes psychotic personalities emerged in Trainspotting. But which one best reflects you as a person? Is it the good-natured but ultimately flawed Renton? Or maybe you’re a bit cunning and Sick Boy suits you down to the ground. Take the quiz below to find out.


Just don’t come raging to us when you get Begbie – that’s your problem, pal…
