Cumberbatch helps bring £15m to Glasgow
This in fact represents a small drop from 2016, but the £15m figure nonetheless shows a sustained interest in Glasgow.
“The Glasgow Film Office has been a real trailblazer in terms of attracting all types of productions to Glasgow and Scotland, and we can all look forward to the city featuring on our screens in the coming years,” said councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council and city convener for inclusive economic growth.
In 2017, the Scottish city also hosted scenes for Netflix’s historical feature Outlaw King, starring US actor Chris Pine in the story of 14th century Scots monarch Robert the Bruce, as well as the BBC’s hospital drama Trust Me, among others.
