The star of Sunshine on Leith has appeared in court today charged with an alleged sex attack on a woman in Glasgow.
Kevin Guthrie allegedly committed the offence at a flat in the city, where he is based.
Prosecutors allege the 32-year-old struck on "various occasions" between September 30 and October 1 2017.
The actor is best known for his role as Ally in the 2013 film Sunshine on Leith.
The indictment, which lists a number of accusations, includes claims the pair watched pornography together, that Guthrie put his tongue in her mouth and also bit her breast.
Guthrie – who also featured in the Fantastic Beasts films and most recently Netflix drama The English Game – denies the sexual assault charge.
He was in the dock today/yesterday at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
Guthrie was initially not at the hearing after his lawyer John Kilcoyne said the actor was in a " Covid bubble" due to his job.
But, Sheriff Martin Jones QC ordered Guthrie to appear and, 30 minutes later, he was at court.
Mr Kilcoyne said: “I called him…and he said he was in Glasgow.
“He didn’t advise me of that in a call on Friday.
“He said his employers advised him to keep his bubble as small as possible.”
A trial before a jury was set for January next year.
But, Mr Kilcoyne said Guthrie may not be able to make it due to "work commitments".

Sheriff Jones told Mr Kilcoyne to keep the court informed of Guthrie’s work schedule.
Guthrie, of the city's Yorkhill, had his bail continued meantime.
