GERARD BUTLER (Andre Marek), born in Glasgow, was a youthful acting enthusiast who was dissuaded from an acting career and channeled for seven years into a career as a lawyer. But after talking his way into a part in "Coriolanus" at London's Mermaid Theatre and winning the lead in "Trainspotting," his career path was set.

Butler's film debut came in "Mrs. Brown," the Academy Award®-nominated story of Queen Victoria and the Scottish Highlander John Brown, with Judi Dench and Billy Connolly. More films and theater followed, including the title role of Attila, the historic warrior in the television miniseries of the same name, directed by Dick Lowry. His big breakthrough came when he portrayed a contemporary Dracula in Wes Craven's "Dracula 2000," with Jonny Lee Miller and Christopher Plummer. His other work includes "Reign of Fire," with Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey, and the British television drama "The Jury," with Derek Jacobi and Antony Sher.

Butler was most recently seen opposite Academy Award®-winner Angelina Jolie in "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life." He also completed shooting the Scottish film "Dear Frankie," with Emily Mortimer. and "The Game of Their Lives," a true story of the American soccer team that strove, against all odds, to win the 1950 World Cup.

Next up for Butler is the title role in the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera," directed by Joel Schumacher.
