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

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

The film premiered at the International Indian Film Academy 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 plane in this movie -- and they are all stars," Blair said.
