Dad is in different league.
The man is Ian Riddell, father of Scots actor Derek Riddell, best known for his roles as Dr Jamie Patterson in No Angels and gay ned Rab in The Book Group.
But while Riddell junior has been making a name for himself on the screen, Riddell senior is already a legend on the pitch.
Ian played for St Mirren and later for Berwick Rangers when they defeated Glasgow Rangers 1-0 in the 1967 Scottish Cup.
At 38, Derek,who grew up in Glasgow, is too young to remember the famous match.
But mum Hope Ross is an actress so he didn't have to look far for inspiration.
