No tax incentives for film-makers to shoot in Britain

Hollywood heart-throb
has blasted the lack of tax incentives for
fimmakers to work in the UK.

The Scottish-born actor – whose latest role is Norman Warne, Beatrix Potter’s
publisher and secret love in Miss Potter – made the comment during an interview,
adding that he relished the opportunity of filming in London and the Lake
District, the Daily Express reported.

‘We should be making more and more films over here. But the problem is there
are no tax incentives to work here.

‘It’s crazy. We have such fantastic studios, technicians and some of the best
actors in the world – so it’s just lunacy. They don’t make it attractive for
actors to work here,’ he said.
