Chris Pine is not only bringing his acting talents across the pond, but it turns out his upcoming Netflix show Outlaw King also helped to bring in serious cash for the city of Glasgow.
According to figures released this week by the Glasgow Film Office, the filming and production of his show, along with the show Patrick Melrose starring Benedict Cumberbatch, helped to bring in £15 million, or a bit over $20 million, to the community in 2017 alone.
“This success brought yet more stardust to the city, with famous faces such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pine, Julie Walters and Karen Gillan filming here last year,” Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council said in a statement.
Though Pine doesn’t have social media (probably because he lives in the ‘90s and uses a flip phone) we’re sure he’s heard the news and is proud of his accomplishments. At least we are, and so are his fans.
RT if you judged Chris Pine too early and then ignored his progress until recently and realized what a treasure he is and feel bad
