The actor has long been a supporter of the Yes movement, previously saying the 2014 referendum was a key moment in his life despite his disappointment at the result.

He described it as an “amazing time” and said he seen people he never thought would be interested in politics have their say.

“I’ve supported independence from a very young age,” he previously told the Sunday National.

“On the day of the referendum I was walking down to the polling station in Greenock and I felt like I was walking on air.

“When the vote was coming I almost didn’t want the campaign to end, it was just such an incredible time for Scotland.”

Reacting to Compston's appearance on social media, First Minister Humza Yousaf said: "Great to have @martin_compston join us in Glasgow - the Yes City. 

"Lots of people here from every corner of Scotland for the @believeinscot march and rally. 

"People from all walks of life, marching side by side, for one simple reason - our belief in an independent Scotland."

The National:

In a separate interview with NME, he previously said “the fact is the youth of the country are massively in favour of independence”.

“Politicians from Westminster want you to think ‘oh they’re all a shower of b******s’ and make you feel disenfranchised so you don’t vote but the youth are going to drive this thing.

“I really do think it’s not a case of it, but when.”
