A Tayside actress, who has appeared at both Dundee Rep and Perth Theatre, is swapping the stage for a spell on the screen.
Sally Reid is one of the stars of new BBC One TV comedy series Scot Squad, which begins on Monday at 10.35pm.
Sally, a former St Ninian’s Primary and Perth High School pupil, plays the role of PC Sarah Fletcher in the six-part series.
It isn’t her first BBC comedy role, as she has appeared in Rab C. Nesbitt.
Playing alongside Sally in Scot Squad is Jordan Young, from Kettlebridge.
Jordan takes on the role of PC Jack McLaren, but he’s best known for playing Alex McAllister in River City.
He has also appeared in Bob Servant Independent and he took on the part of Alex Setterington in the film Filth, co-starring with James McAvoy.
Speaking about Scot Squad, Sally said: “It’s a documentary-style programme from the Comedy Unit and it was great fun to do.
“I’m looking forward to seeing it on screen.
“It’s a spoof on other police programmes and one episode features theft of garments from a washing line. It’s that kind of show.
“It features some odd characters and some odd situations and, hopefully, it will be something the viewers like.”
Sally is soon to be seen on stage again when she takes the role of Tina Baxter in Perth Theatre’s production of The Fundraiser, which goes ahead at the Fair City’s Salutation Hotel from November 5-8.
The play is set in the heart of Tayside with a good number of local references and it concerns an effort to raise more cash for Tina’s attempt to swim the English Channel.
Having previously won the Tay River Race, Tina is ready for the bigger challenge and the play unravels the barriers she has to meet to reach that goal.
Sally is well known to Tayside theatregoers.
Her role as Madge Conway in Time And The Conways at Dundee Rep won her a nomination for Best Actress at the UK Theatre Awards and her recent appearances at Perth Theatre include Blithe Spirit, Sunset Song and The Silver Darlings.
And, following The Fundraiser, Sally will be back in Perth in her role as assistant director of the theatre’s Christmas show, Sleeping Beauty.
