FILM star Alan Cumming has bought a one-bedroom flat in Polwarth to ensure he can vote for independence in next year’s referendum.

The X-Men actor, who lives in New York, forked out £82,000 for the flat, which secures him a place on the voting register.

Last year, he took part in the official launch of the pro-independence Yes campaign along with First Minister Alex Salmond and other stars.

Cumming, who was born in Perthshire, said: “I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to make an independent Scotland a reality.

“That’s why I’ve made sure I have a Scottish address again and am able to vote.”
