British Prime Minister Tony Blair has made his movie debut in a short film about climate change awareness, which is directed by filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.

The 54-year-old outgoing premier plays a "carbon crusader" in the film, titled Global Cool, that also stars blond beauty Sienna Miller.

The film was premiered at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards ceremony at Yorkshire.

Blair said he has been preparing for the role for more than a decade and he felt great to be a part of the film. "I've been preparing for this role for the last ten years. So it was great to be part of Global Cool. But remember, I was only one of a billion people saving the planet in this movie - and they are all stars," Blair said.
