Kevin McKidd set for chart success after cover of Snow Patrol hit on US TV show Grey's Anatomy
Kevin McKidd could be heading for No1 in the charts after wowing millions of Grey's Anatomy fans in a special musical edition.
The Trainspotting and Rome actor has become an iTunes sensation in the US after covering the Snow Patrol hit Chasing Cars.
He sings it with co-stars Sara Ramirez and Chandra Wilson in the episode screened last night on US television. Due to be shown in the UK next month, it sees the stars of the hospital drama singing Gleestyle during a traumatic night.
A soundtrack of the episode made the US charts on pre-orders before the broadcast. Now Elgin-born Kevin, 37, is filming a music video for the series' DVD box set.
He said: "The DVD people are shooting two videos. One is my character singing the Gomez song How to Operate. I think we should have dry ice and a wind machine, and a kilt flowing in the breeze."
Kevin has played Dr Owen Hunt in Grey's Anatomy for three years, after making his US breakthrough with Rome, which is being screened on satellite channel TCM later this month.
