Martin Compston on the terrifying moment he went up in flames on the set of The Rig

www.dailymail.co.uk, December 30, 2022
As his old boss Ted Hastings would say, 'Now we're cooking with gas.' Martin Compston has swapped the waistcoats and interview rooms of Line Of Duty for a hard hat and an oil platform in the wild North Sea in new supernatural thriller The Rig. It's a part close to his heart, as his own father used to work on those remote, towering constructions, but filming proved surprisingly dangerous when a major stunt went wrong, as Martin reveals with a nervous laugh. 'Yeah, it got a wee bit toasty!' A mysterious fog causes havoc at one point and his character, a quiet but plucky oil worker called Fulmer, has to rescue the crew from destruction by shooting a flare into a cloud of gas to relight the rig's vital flame. The subsequent explosion catches him. 'At first I was going, "Wow, I'm on fire and I don't feel a thing, what they can do is amazing,"' recalls Martin, who had protective padding under his burning outfit. 'Then I went, "Oh, I can feel this a wee bit." And then, "I can really feel it now!"' Although the flames began to reach the skin on his back, still Martin didn't cry out. 'There's this daft thing as an actor, you keep going until somebody says, "Cut!"' His distress must have been visible though, because one of the cast intervened to save him. 'It was Iain Glen [who plays the leader of the oil rig team] who said, "Guys, this isn't going quite as planned." So they were on top of it immediately.' Martin was shaken, but was he actually hurt? 'No. A bit of a tan!'
