The true accent of Duty star Martin Compston shone in a moment of football cheer on the set.
The 36-year-old actor took to Twitter to share a funny moment on the set where he disbanded the character of his role as DI Steve Arnott.
Despite playing Steve with a Southern England accent, the actor’s Scottish roots shone emotionally at the moment of football’s success for the Scottish national team as they qualified for Euro 2020.
In the clip, Martin is seen filming in his police car and is then heard asking for time for “two seconds”.
There is then a long pause as Martin is seen listening to the game before he drifts into a screaming cheer and dances enthusiastically, shouting, “Come! “
The actor shouted: “Come on, Scotland!” “
Along with the video, Martin tweeted: “With the app2app2appolates spoiler I can reveal what happens when you’re in the middle of a bent brass but @ScotlandNT Are on penalties for ending 20 years of grief. ”
He then jokingly guessed, “Steve to the Scots at zero seconds.” [man dancing emoji, Scottish flag emoji] #yessirwecanboogie «.
