The Line of Duty and Vigil star can be seen in the set of four pictures with his eyes and face covered, then peaking over his mask, before looking bemused and smiling.
He told his followers he was going to to be part of a new ICONS exhibition explaining: “Absolute pleasure to be shot by Andy Gotts as part of his ICONS exhibition at Maddox Gallery 2nd-19th Sept, featuring portraits of some incredible artists a privilege to be amongst them! Check it out if you can.”
Starting his career as a portrait photographer in 1990 after meeting Stephen Fry, Andy Gotts MBE is revered for his ability to capture portraits that feel as intimate as they are revealing, taking simple yet powerful photographs that depict the person behind the persona.
For the exhibition from September 2nd -19th ‘One Shot Gott’, as he’s known, also took a portrait of Scots Doctor Who and Suicide Squad star Peter Capaldi.
Fans loved the pics but one even joked that the new pics looked like a response to Martin’s early killing off in new drama Vigil- but in reverse order.
The comment went down well with other Compston fans as they said: “That’s the facial expressions of people watching Vigil Sunday only in reverse order.”
Another responded: “Devastation that first ep my world crumbled!”
One fan swooned: “How can he be so perfect?”
And another suggested: “Deffo without the mask.”
