      Success came late for actor Steve Evets. He was already in his late 40s when he starred as a wheelchair-bound alcoholic opposite Robert Carlyle in the tender 2008 drama "Summer." It was a breakout role and a long time coming for a guy who had only decided to take acting seriously after being brutally stabbed numerous times in a pub brawl in 1987. After coming off life support and recuperating, Evets dove into acting seriously and performed in theater for many years and formed his own drama company. When he wasn't on stage, however, he worked manual labor, performed poetry, and even performed bass duties with post-punk band The Fall. He started landing sporadic acting work on television in the late 1990s, appearing in bit parts on shows like "Emmerdale," "City Central," and "Nice Guy Eddie." Work in television movies also came his way, most notably a part in "See No Evil: The Moors Murders," about the notorious killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. A year after his role in "Summer," Evets starred with ex-Manchester United player and French national soccer legend Eric Cantona in the Ken Loach film "Looking for Eric." Evets plays a middle-aged mailman living in Manchester whose family life falls apart and he starts receiving advice from Cantona, whom he imagines alongside him. Evets' role was widely praised, along with the film. He also co-stars in "Robin Hood," "Brighton Rock," and "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."
