Born in Glasgow, Scotland to Margaret and Edward Butler. Gerard was
raised (along with his older brother and sister) in his mother's
hometown of Paisley, Scotland. He also spent some of his early
youth in Canada. His parents divorced when he was a small child and
he and his siblings were raised primarily by their mother Margaret
who later remarried. He had no contact with his father Edward till
years later when he was sixteen years old, after which time they
became close. His father passed away when Gerard was in his early
twenties . Butler went on to attend Glasgow University where he
studied to be a Lawyer/Solicitor. He was even president of the
schools law society thanks to his outgoing personality and great
social skills. His acting career began when he was approached in a
London coffee shop by Actor Stephen Berkoff, who gave him a stage
role in the play "Coriolanus". He decided to give up law school for
acting. He was later cast as Ewan MacGregor's character Renton in
the stage adaptation of the movie Trainspotting. His debut movie
role was as Billy Connolly's younger brother in the movie _Mrs.
Brown (1997)_ (qv). While filming the movie in Scotland he was
enjoying a picnic with his mother, near the River Tay, when they
heard the shouts of a young boy who had been swimming with a friend
who was in some trouble. Butler jumped in and consequently saved
the young boy from drowning. He received a "Certificate of Bravery"
from the Royal Humane Society. He felt he only did what anyone in
the situation would have. His movie career continued with small
roles in the James Bond Movie _Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)_ (qv) and
Russell Mulchary's _Tale of the Mummy (1998)_ (qv). In 2000 Butler
was cast in his breakthrough roles... the first being Attila the
Hun in the USA movie _"Attila" (2001) (mini)_ (qv). Producers of
the mini series wanted a known actor to play the part but kept
coming back to Gerard Butler's screen tests and decided that he was
their man. He had to lose the thick Scottish accent, but managed
well. Around the time Attila was being filmed casting was in
progress for Wes Craven's new take on the Dracula legacy, also
wanting a known name (so Butler wasn't much of a consideration).
His unending tenacity and drive drove him to hounding the
producers. Eventually he sent them a clip of his part as Attila.
They must have liked it because _Dracula 2000 (2000)_ (qv) was cast
in the form of Gerard Butler. Producers of Attila, thinking that
his big screen role might help with the Attila ratings, managed to
finish up a little early so that he could get to work on Dracula
2000. Attila ended up being the 2nd highest rated mini-series ever.
Butler currently splits his home between London and L.A. and enjoys
visiting his mother in Scotland, with whom he is very close.
