Mike Myers says no to Scottish independence. Shrek, however, is undecided
The actor casts his verdict on whether or not Scotland should become an independent state
Mike Myers has become the latest high-profile name to join the Scottish independence debate.
The Wayne’s World actor says he hopes that the country “remains part of Britain”.
“I love Scotland, I hope they remain part of Britain, and if they don't, then I'll still love them,” he said during an interview on Radio 4’s Today programme.
He was also asked how his Scottish alter ego and much-loved ogre would be voting.
"What a fantastic question that I can't answer," he said, answering in the character’s Scottish accent. "Shrek wants what the will of the Scottish people want."
Myers was born in Canada, but his parents are from England. He is now one of numerous famous figures to have added his voice to the issue, which will come to a head on September 18 when Scots will vote on whether to become an independent nation.
Those who don’t want Scotland to leave the UK include JK Rowling, Eddie Izzard, David Bowie, Sir Alex Ferguson, John Barrowman, Emma Thompson and Susan Boyle, while those for it include Sean Connery, Frankie Boyle and Alan Cumming.
In June, Rowling donated £1million to the country’s anti-independence Better Together campaign, saying that to leave would be a “historically bad mistake”.
"If we leave, there will be no going back,” she wrote on the campaign’s website.
“This separation will not be quick and clean: it will take microsurgery to disentangle three centuries of close interdependence, after which we will have to deal with three bitter neighbours."
