MISSION Impossible actor Dougray Scott has revealed he still follows his beloved Hibs from Los Angeles.
The Fife-born actor used to be a season-ticket holder at Easter Road but being based in LA and travelling so much, he said he has to make do with watching his favourite football team online.
“I’ve got Hibs TV, so I watch every single game I can. I’d love to get back for more matches though,” he said.
Dougray said he was football crazy as a youngster, and this is a passion he shared with his dad who had played for Queen’s Park.
Travelling to watch Hibs was almost an obsession for his father, he explained.
“He’d take me to away games too, religiously, wherever it was, Aberdeen on a cold night, Arbroath, it didn’t matter. I wanted to be a footballer too, but was never good enough for that.”
Dougray is currently playing Sir Percival Glyde in the new BBC1 adaptation of Wilkie Collins’ Victorian thriller The Woman In White.
He said he relished the role of the baddie baronet, having been captivated by the novel as a bookish youngster hanging out in the library near his Glenrothes home.
“I was always reading and felt an incredible affinity for the power of the written word, fell in love with it,” he said.
