Martin Compston Makes A Promise To Fans About New Show The Rig

WARNING: Contains spoilers for the first episode of Vigil

Martin Compston has promised fans that he will get a bit more air-time on his new show The Rig after being killed off from Vigil within the first 10 minutes.

Amazon Prime Video will be streaming the new series, set in Compston's native Scotland.

The Line of Duty star plays an oil rig worker named Fulmer Hamilton and is joined by Game of Thrones star Iain Glen and Schitt's Creek actor Emily Hampshire.

The actor took to Twitter and reassured fans that he would last a bit longer in this new series, yet failed to confirm just how long that may be.

He wrote: "Can confirm I don't die in first ten minutes, after that it's every boiler suit for themselves."

Fans of the actor were quick to reply.

One user wrote: "I was waiting for him to come back to life. It was very odd."

While a second user added: "My mum's convinced he's still alive... like Dallas, it's all been a dream."

Even the Amazon Prime Video admin weighed in and wrote: "Now this is the news the fans want."

A final user concluded: "Haha I was gutted after you pegged it but at least we get to see you in flashbacks! Please don't become Scotland's Sean Bean."

The Rig is directed by Thomas Vincent, known for his work on BBC's Bodyguard.

The official synopsis reads: "When the crew are due to return to the mainland, a mysterious and all-enveloping fog rolls through and they find themselves cut off from all communication with the shore and the outside world.

"As they endeavour to discover what's driving this force, bonds are broken, allegiances formed and generational fault lines exposed.

"The crew of the Bravo will be driven to the limits of both their loyalties and their endurance, into a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination."

The new six-part series began filming in March and is expected to his screens some time next year.
