On 1st December 2009, Gerard Butler was officially launched as the Ambassador for Glasgow Film Office (GFO).
The Hollywood A-lister, best known for his portrayal of King Leonidas in the film 300 spoke about his passion for Glasgow when he was home for the UK premiere of his film The Law Abiding Citizen. “I’m very honoured to be asked to be Glasgow Film Office’s ambassador, anything I can do to support the local film and television industry is worthwhile.”
Having grown up in and around Glasgow and having worked on local film Dear Frankie, Gerard Butler was the perfect choice to help promote the work of Glasgow Film Office. He shares with GFO a strong passion for raising the profile of Glasgow and demonstrating its capability as a production base, citing his own experiences of filming here as evidence.
