Line Of Duty's Martin Compston hits back at a troll questioning his Scottish citizenship

Martin Compston has hilariously hit back at a troll who questioned his Scottish roots and citizenship.

The Line Of Duty star, 36, was responding to a troll questioning him for urging Scots to vote for the SNP and back Nicola Sturgeon in the election on Thursday.

Martin, who stars as Steve Arnott in the hit BBC drama, had made the plea on Sunday in an online rally, which aired shortly before last night's Line Of Duty finale.

A troll then responded: 'Hi mate just saw your video for the SNP , quick question, what part of Scotland do you stay now?'

To which Martin hit back: '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. 

'Anything else I can help you with? My movements over the next week? My plans for the weekend? It’s my birthday so I’ll be out if you need a heads up.'

The actor relocated Stateside in 2019 with his American wife, actress Tianna Flynn, their baby boy, and their dog King, where they snapped up a sprawling four-bed home in Nevada - which boasts a spa, and a solar-heated swimming pool. 

Martin, who also owns a home in Greenock, previously hit back at trolls by sharing an image of the flyer showing his name and part of his Scots address.

The flyer was signed by Scottish Conservative Party leaders Ruth Davidson and Douglas Ross, urging Compston to vote for them. 

He also clapped back by adding: 'I see Scottish tory twitter and their bots enraged an actor would express an opinion'

He bought a flat in Greenock earlier this year so he could be closer to his parents, but he spends much of his time in America. 

Regarding the election, Martin told an online rally on Monday: 'I think even people who don't like Nicola Sturgeon, for whatever reason, have had to admit that she has been by far the most competent leader on these islands dealing with this crisis.

'And she's the one I think is best placed to take us forward getting out of it. 

So, I do really think that we are in a situation now where we need the best people, the most competent people, in charge of Scotland. To make sure that we come out of this a better place than we went in.'
