Taggart star McCredie is latest actor to be selected by Between Weathers producers

Another actor to star in the film Between Weathers, which is due to be shot in Shetland later this year, has been named.

Scottish stage and screen star Colin McCredie, perhaps best known for his role as DC Stuart Fraser in the television detective series Taggart, will join the cast which so far includes Sharleen Spiteri and Dawn Steele.

The 39-year-old actor, originally from Dumbarton, has appeared in a host of theatre and TV appearances. He has also had film success, including Danny Boyle’s 1994 film Shallow Grave.

McCredie was reported to be “delighted” to be involved in the film which he expects to be a “must see” for 2012. He said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Between Weathers. It’s a brilliant, funny, contemporary and feel-good script.

“I can’t wait to visit the stunning locations on Shetland and start working with the excellent cast that is being assembled. It is so exciting to be involved with the must-see Scottish film of 2012.”

Director Jim Brown said: “I am so pleased that Colin has agreed to play the part of Roddy in the movie. He is an exceptional actor who I know will make the shy and tactless Roddy leap from the page.

“His performances in Shallow Grave, Small Faces and of course Taggart have shown him to be one of Scotland’s best young actors and I am really looking forward to working with him on Between Weathers.”
