Martin Compston has shown that he is not someone to be messed with in real life, as well as on screen in Line Of Duty.
The 36-year-old actor, whose birthday is at the weekend, had an epic clap back to a troll who questioned his Scottish citizenship.
Martin, who is best know for playing Anti-Corruption Unit Detective Inspector Steve Arnott in the acclaimed BBC police drama, had been encouraging Scottish voters to go to the polls, adding that the future of Scotland is in their hands.
The actor had a number of responses to his appeal on Twitter , including one which wanted to know how he could be claiming to be living in the country.
A troll responded with: “Hi mate, what part of Scotland do you stay now? @martin_compston.”
The tweet seemed to be a dig about Martin’s home address after he spent lockdown with his wife in Las Vegas, where they have a home.
Martin had an epic response to put the troll in their place, writing: “Currently staying in Edinburgh where I'm working for next 4 months but I'll get back to my place in Greenock on my days off Dan.
He added: “Anything else I can help you with?
“My movements over the next week? My plans for the weekend?”
Martin then revealed: ” It's my birthday so I'll be out if you need a heads up.”
This comes after Martin took to Twitter on Monday to thank fans for tuning in to Line Of Duty and even addressed the backlash from viewers regarding the ending of the latest series.
He began: “Hey folks now the madness is slightly dying down just want to thank everybody who reached out about last night and the series as a whole, we've truly been blown away by the reaction and love for the show we're proud of it.
“Fully understand it wasn't the 'urgent exit' type ending some anticipated but we appreciate you sticking with us.”
