The Glasgow actor, writer and comedian joins Line of Duty star Martin, Outlaw King’s Tony Curran, Ashley Jensen, Tracy Ifeachor, Shauna Macdonald and Colin McCredie in the line-up.
Based on Andrew O’Hagan’s acclaimed novel, Mayflies tells the story of friends Tully and Jimmy (Curran and Compston) who bond over music, films and the rebel spirit. Thirty years later, Tully receives news which will test their loyalties to the limit and change their lives forever.
Produced by BAFTA award-winning Synchronicity Films, the drama is set and filmed in Scotland. Recently, Glasgow Times photographer Gordon Terris captured the cast on location in Bellahouston Park.
Extras actor Jensen was spotted filming with Martin in a pub in Govan last week.
Mayflies will air later this year on BBC One, BBC Scotland and BBC iPlayer.
