Mel Gibson - Braveheart Stars Reunite To Mark 20th Anniversary

The stars of Mel Gibson's historical epic Braveheart reunited in Edinburgh, Scotland on Tuesday (24Jun14) to mark 20 years since filming began on the movie.

Actors Brian Cox, David O'Hara, Angus MACfadyen and Peter Mullan reunited on the tartan red carpet to mark the 20th anniversary of filming and to commemorate 700 years since the Battle of Bannockburn, which is portrayed in the final scenes of the Oscar-winning movie.

The actors took part in a question-and-answer session after a special screening of the film, and Gibson, who was unable to attend the event in person, sent in a pre-recorded video message to mark the moment.

In the clip, the film's lead actor and director, said, "It is hard to believe that 20 years ago this month our production got underway in Scotland. And what a production it was. I was fortunate to be able to bring together so many talented people for this project. Together we went into battle with a goal of telling a good story while being cinematically compelling. This evening's event honouring Braveheart two decades later acknowledges that we accomplished what we set out to do... it is very gratifying indeed."

The 1995 film won five Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director for Gibson.
