Butler was born in Glasgow, the son of Margaret and Edward Butler. His great-grandparents were from Ireland. Butler was raised in a strict Catholic household in a working-class family. For the first two years of his life, he lived in Montreal. When his parents divorced, his mother took him and his siblings back to Scotland, to her hometown of Paisley. He had no further contact with his father until he was sixteen years old.
Phantom of the Opera film 2004, director joel Schumacher.
In this movie Butler played the role of the Phantom, in my opinion this is the best Phantom ever.
