Where are the players in the game still and what has happened since the end of the show?
More play was a staple of Scottish TV for many years as we watched our favorite retirees take trips to the pub and talk about Craiglang.
Or if you want to see the familiar faces in different settings, here’s what the actors have been up to since bidding farewell to the hit series in 2019.
Ford played Jack Jarvis, one of the main characters in the series. Even before the show, he had his fair share of big screen roles as he played Black Joke Chief in the 2002 Martin Scorsese Gangs of New York film, as well as roles in The Debt Collector and California Sunshine. Ford’s last role was playing Gavin in the romantic comedy “Then Came You” in 2020 as he co-starred with Elizabeth Hurley.
Hemphill played Victor, the joint leader alongside Ford. Since the show ended, Greg has written and directed his own comedy show for BBC Scotland last year. The show, Long Night at Blackstone, was about ghost hunters and starred Deacon Blue singer Lorraine McIntosh as Faye Bowers alongside Hemphill’s wife Julie Wilson Nimmo (Scot Squad).
Mitchell is known to have played Boaby the Bartender on the show, typically pulling pints for retirees in Craiglang. Since the show ended, he was honored, Mitchell won the ‘Best Actor’ award at the They Scottish Comedy Awards in June 2019 and, in July 2019, received an honorary doctorate in letters from the Caledonian University of Glasgow. He can currently be seen playing Grand Duke Sergei in Netflix’s “The Last Czars”.
Sanjeev played the fan favorite character and store owner Navid throughout the series. Since the show ended, Sanjeev has played AJ Jandhu on the BBC Scotland soap opera River town (2015-present). Since 2019, Kohli hosts his own talk show The great speech of Sanjeev Kohli , on the BBC in Scotland.

He also received high praise for his performance as Michael Farmer in the fourth series of the BBC’s hit drama Line of Duty.
Mark played Tam in Still Game which will always be remembered as clenched fists with his money, the Glasgow Box bar even giving a cocktail its name – the Tam is a glass of water that costs nothing. Since the end of the series, he has worked alongside Jane McCarry on Pipe Up. He also starred in “Keeping Mum” in 2018 and “The Magical Beacon Stone” in 2020.
Jane played nosy neighbor Isa in Still Game. Since the show ended, Jane has worked alongside former co-star Mark Cox on Pipe Up and has taken a totally different path than her other co-stars. Jane landed a teaching position at Craigmarloch School in 2020.
