New York: Scottish actor Gerard Butler had a sobering experience filming new action movie `Machine Gun Preacher` in South Africa - two crew members were killed during the shoot.

The `300` star plays a reformed drug dealer who starts an orphanage for war-torn kids in Sudan, and he admits the entire cast put their lives at risk to film on location, reported the New York Post.

"I`m from Glasgow, a tough city. I`ve been in Africa before. Kenya. We filmed in South Africa not the Sudan, which isn`t safe. Two of our people died there while filming. We had carjackings, accidents," said Butler.
