Early life

Born in Easterhouse, Glasgow,[1][2] Flanagan is the third of five children. His distinctive facial scars, known as a "Glasgow smile", are the result of a knife attack outside a nightclub where he had been working as a DJ.[3]

He was previously married to actress/casting director/assistant director Rachel Schadt from 1998-2001; Schadt had co-starred with Flanagan in the David Fincher film The Game (1997), in which she played a hotel maid.
