NAME: Gerard Butler
AGE: 42 (born 13 November 1969)
ABOUT: Born in Paisley, Scotland, Butler initially was set for a career in the law, but his partying lifestyle saw this come to an abrupt end when he was sacked just a week before he qualified as a solicitor. Moving to London and of course working in the requite pre-actor success jobs of waiter/salesman etc. He caught a break in Steven Berkoff’s play of Coriolanus, which then led to more stage roles, including the leading role in the stage adaption of Trainspotting.
