#Quote
1I'm in the very fortunate position as a young actor to not have to take the first job that comes along. I'm not motivated by money at this stage in my life, I'm motivated by work.
2The last time I threw a punch was in primary school, and that was probably a slap.
3When I was growing up, it was the guys who were hardest at school who got the prettiest girls. It's a status thing.
4A lot of the films I do go down brilliantly critically and win awards, but not a lot of people see them.
5I'm a lucky boy. Never wanted for anything; new tracksuit, new pair of football boots. I had a happy childhood.
6When I was young, running with a gang was a cool thing to do; that's how you get popular; that's how you get the girls.
7There was a lot of pressure on me when I was 18, 19 to move to America. I went out for a couple of weeks and hated it. I thought I could go out of my mind. You could really see how people could go off the rails.
8Acting has been really to good me. You end up in some wild places, and I love adventure.
9I don't regret giving up football for acting. I love football and am very proud I played for Morton. But the truth is, I wasn't going to get much higher in football. At the same time, I sensed I could go somewhere in acting. I'm 28, which is young for acting, whereas in football I'd now be near the end of my career.
10I've been lucky enough to work with some great directors, and I don't want to throw that away by doing one big horrible big budget film.
11I've two huge German shepherds who are my boys. They're called Biscuit and Buster and I love them to bits. They're two years old. - Interview with the BBC, 17 October 2004.
#Fact

2Fought with the local council to have Sweet Sixteen (2002) reduced to a certificate 15 in his area for the teenagers to learn from Liam's mistakes. The battle was successful.
3Obtained As and Bs in his exam results in school.
4Left school at the end of his fifth year in High School to be signed by Greenock Morton Football Club.
5Attended St. Columba's High School Gourock, Inverclyde (a part of Renfrewshire).
6Sweet Sixteen (2002) was his first film and was critically acclaimed at the 2002 Cannes Festival in France.
7Played professional football (soccer) for Greenock Morton in Scotland.
8At 17, Martin was playing Division II soccer (football) in a Scottish high school and had never acted until being discovered by director Ken Loach, who cast him as the lead in Sweet Sixteen (2002).
