The Scottish actor and his wife, Tianna, have become founding members and investors in a venue called The Firm, which is situated in downtown Los Angeles.

The whisky and cigar bar is described as a ‘unique and vibrant private membership club which draws its members from LA’s active professionals'.

Last month, Compston, who before becoming an actor played professional for Greenock Morton, said it was becoming an actor that allowed him to achieve his footballing dreams.

The star, who is best known for playing Detective Inspector Steve Arnott in Line Of Duty, will return to play for Soccer Aid 2022 as part of the World XI team.

Speaking ahead of the star-studded charity match at the London Stadium on Sunday June 12, Compston said: “It’s a weird thing in terms of I gave up on my dream of being a footballer when I was 17, when I was playing Scottish second division with (Greenock) Morton, but I was very realistic that that was probably about my level.

“So, weirdly, by giving up on that, I’ve sort of achieved my dreams, playing at all these amazing stadiums in front of huge crowds, with genuine legends, people who I would have never got to share a pitch with, so I’m very grateful for that.”

And Compston admitted still faces pressure from his friends to perform well at Soccer Aid.

“You’re terrified of going home and getting a slagging from your mates. People in Greenock, my home town, my pals, they’re pretty ruthless – they’ll let you know if you had a bad game,” he said.

“I think just naturally I’m a pretty competitive person anyway, and maybe you see people charging forwards and maybe I’m a pessimist, but if I play football with people charging forward for goals, I’m sort of determined to defend because, even when you’re 3-0 up with a minute to go, I still don’t think the game’s over.”
