He takes on the starring role as Scottish outlaw-turned-king Robert The Bruce in Netflixs newest bloody historical drama.

James Mottram, reviewing the film for the Herald as it found its way to Scotland, said it “could have changed the outcome of the independence referendum” had it been released in 2014.

And Chris Pine was every inch the leading man when he rubbed shoulders with his co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson at the Outlaw King premiere, in London on Wednesday.

The Netflix production stars Pine as Robert the Bruce, who seeks to reclaim the Scottish throne in the early 14th century as its people suffer at the hands of Edward I .

The actor, 38, looked impossibly handsome in his grey suit and tails, worn with a check shirt and tie, when he graced the BFI London Film Festival with his presence. 

The movie tells the untold, true story of Robert the Bruce who transforms from defeated nobleman to outlaw hero during the oppressive occupation of medieval Scotland by Edward I of England. Despite grave consequences, Robert seizes the Scottish crown and rallies an impassioned group of men to fight back against the mighty army of the tyrannical King and his volatile son, the Prince of Wales.

Chris and Aaron were overjoyed to be reunited with each other on the red carpet and the pair shared a friendly embrace. 

For Josie, a member of the citys Strange Town youth theatre, landing the role was dream come true, although in some ways, she has older sister Flora to thank in part for her big break – it was after Flora joined the local drama club Josie decided she too wanted to have a go.

Charming Chris also stopped to snap a series of selfies with his adoring fans, who braved the chilly conditions to get a glimpse of the stars walking the red carpet.
