After an unconventional start into acting (he was fired as a lawyer in Edinburgh due to his partying antics and moved to London), Gerard Butler
has appeared in rom-coms, animations and even musicals, but the Scottish actor has emerged as an unashamed Hollywood bad-ass in some of the most iconic action films of recent times.
From an early role starring alongside James Bond in Tomorrow Never Dies
(1997) to returning as one-man-army Mike Banning in London Has Fallen
(in cinemas March 3), there is no end to the tough-guy roles that Butler can impress in.
The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen
sees Butler in his latest action-packed role, as the relentless bodyguard to the Us president, Mike Banning. Upon the discovery of a plot to assassinate the world leaders attending the Prime Minister’s funeral, he makes it his mission to stand firm against the relentless violence that awaits him.
