Martin Compston: Actor’s advice is work for love and not money

The lovely actor, who is definitely worth a few bob after some prime acting roles, explained that passion should be behind everything you do.

He said: “One of the things I hate as an actor is when a writer is telling you how you should feel.

“I read one script and it said ‘and the audience’s popcorn is jumping everywhere’.

“Don’t try and write something to be a millionaire. Write something to enjoy writing it.”

Martin said of his honorary degree: “I still can’t believe they gave me it.

“I feel like I must have bribed somebody.”
