PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Line Of Duty star Martin Compston has urged Scots not to leave the outcome of Thursday's election to chance, calling on them to back Nicola Sturgeon in the ballot. The Greenock-born actor, who stars as Steve Arnott in the hit BBC drama, made the plea in an online rally, which aired shortly before the Line Of Duty finale. At the event Compston was joined by other high-profile SNP supporters, including actors Alan Cumming and Brian Cox, crime writer Val McDermid and Mogwai musician Stuart Braithwaite. With the next Scottish Parliament election taking place in just a few days, the actor told voters: "Scotland's future is in your hands. Don't leave it to chance. "The only way to make sure we re-elect Nicola Sturgeon as First Minister is to make it #BothVotesSNP. "Make sure you and all your pals get out to vote." With the election taking place during the coronavirus pandemic, Compston said: "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.

. To make sure that we come out of this a better place than we went in." Compston, who lives in the US with his American wife, continued: "Everyone is allowed an opinion. Whether that be politicians down south or some lovely incredible entertainers who have moved abroad for whatever reason. "Myself, I've lived across the world. That's the beauty of free speech. Everyone is allowed an opinion. But what matters is votes." SNP MP Mhairi Black, who interviewed the actor for the online event, said that the May 6 election was "the most important in Scotland's history" as she stressed that "every vote will count". Black said: "Only by casting both votes for the SNP can we guarantee Nicola Sturgeon is re-elected as First Minister to keep Scotland safe through Covid, build a strong, fair and green recovery, and put Scotland's future in Scotland's hands. "I want to thank Martin and all of the actors, writers, musicians and cultural figures who have given their support to the SNP at this crucial election. "The last year has changed our world. This year we have the opportunity to build a better and fairer future for Scotland by voting SNP."
