Outlander star Sam Hueghen is leading the odds to be the next Scottish actor to pay James Bond.

And Line of Duty fans will be pleased to see Martin Compston on the odds list, with the star coming in at 66-1. 

Tom Hardy remains William Hill’s favourite to land the role and take over from Daniel Craig at 5/2.

Daniel Craig has played Bond in four films since 2006 – Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre as well as new movie No Time To Die.

Bridgerton’s Rege-Jean Page is also a hot favourite at 3-1 and will soon star alongside Bond girl Ana de Armas in the Gray Man.

He’s also set to feature in Dungeons and Dragons alongside Chris Pine and Hugh Grant.

Completing the top five is London-born Luther star Idris Elba, along with Superman Henry Cavill at 8-1.

Outlander star Sam Heughan, who appeared in 2018 flick ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me’ was previously said to be perfect for the role by British GQ.

Tom Hiddleston of Thor fame also joins Sam on 12-1 but it’s unknown if he Loki star could take time out from his busy Marvel calendar to jump in an Aston Martin.

And Peaky Blinders star Cilian Murphy comes in at 28-1.
