Scottish actor Martin Compston is to star in Amazon Prime’s new big budget supernatural thriller The Rig.

Martin will play a communications officer trapped on an oil rig in the North Sea as a mysterious fog surrounds them.

The new part comes as he resumes his role of hero cop DS Steve Arnott in BBC’s Line Of Duty before starring opposite Suranne Jones in upcoming BBC thriller series Vigil.

The Rig is the first Amazon Original series made exclusively in Scotland and is directed by John Strickland, who also directed Bodyguard and Line of Duty.
