I was totally captivated by Gerard Butler as Attila the Hun in the USA Network miniseries Attila. Please give me some more information about this man.

Gerard Butler, 31, was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Veteran British actor Steven Berkoff offered the former lawyer his first acting role (in a stage production of Coriolanus) when he spotted Butler in a London coffee shop. Butler made his feature debut in the Oscar-nominated Mrs. Brown. He went on to co-star in several British films. Other releases include Tomorrow Never Dies and Dracula 2000. Butler is currently at work with Matthew McConnaughey and Christian Bale on the science-fiction thriller Reign of Fire. The single actor divides his time between London and Los Angeles.
