He said: “I just want to say, actors are brilliant. And it’s great when you get an award and it’s all like this and everything’s going really well.

“But for a lot of actors, it’s not going well. And from day-to-day, from week-to-week, it can be really tough, and you can’t get through the door and you can’t get out the door sometimes, so I just want them to know that sometimes the stars align and you get lucky, and that’s what happened to me.”

Elsewhere, Dougray Scott won the award for Actor Television for his leading role in Irvine Welsh’s Crime.

TV show Guilt was the biggest winner on the night, receiving awards for Television Scripted and Writer Film/Television for its creator Neil Forsyth.
