Gerard Butler

His role in 'The Phantom of the Opera' (2004)
This Scottish almost-lawyer traded in his higher education to pursue acting, little did he know that he would fall into some plum roles and into the rumor mill as a candidate for one of the most prominent roles in movie history, James Bond (even though his mother doesn't think anyone can replace another Scot close to her heart, Sean Connery).Leading off with small roles in British TV and stage productions, Gerard found himself playing one of the most feared warriors in history for the USA Network production of Attila and then followed up with donning black to play the seductive, yet dialogue challenged, Count Dracula in Wes Craven's Dracula 2000 (or Dracula 2001 depending on where you live). Follow that with slaying dragons alongside Christian Bale and Matthew McConnaughey in Disney's multi-million dollar Reign of Fire and one would think.....what next? That's easy --- a Granada Television British mini-series The Jury and a trip back to 14th century France in Richard Donner's production of Michael Crichton's Timeline as its hero Andre Marek. Not bad for a lawyer.With his name mentioned in connection with the role of James Bond (although Bond producers deny that they are recruiting for a Pierce Brosnan replacement), more people are hearing this Scots name and making him one2watch4.Source:
I don't know whether it's spiritual development or trying to learn the psychologically with being an actor, but I realise the more I get into it that this was something I was always supposed to do. That allowed me to sit easiser in the life I was living. But that doesn't mean to say you just stroll through it. It takes work and the work is not always about acting. It's sometimes about how you deal with the ups and downs of hope, of expectation.More Gerard Butler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As long as you do the best work that you can and not make it bland... because you're going down a lane that is trying to make everybody happy. You have to take an angle on these things.More Gerard Butler quotes [08/13/2008 12:08:00]
When I'm making a movie, it's making use of my creative juices, and it fills me up with what really is - I think my purpose here is to tell stories.More Gerard Butler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Generally I don't like doing remakes, but I think that's more in the cynical world of Hollywood where normally remakes are purely for commercial reasons.More Gerard Butler quotes [08/13/2008 12:08:00]
I had to prove myself to a lot of different people.More Gerard Butler quotes [08/13/2008 12:08:00]
