Man in court charged with attempted murder of actor Tam Dean Burn
A 42-year old man has appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court charged with the attempted murder of a Scottish actor.
Outlander and River City star Tam Dean Burn was attacked after leaving the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon.
Jonathan Bowie Wilson made a brief appearance in private and no plea was made.
The case was continued and Wilson remanded in custody.
The 60-year old Scots actor, who has also appeared in Fortitude and Outlaw King, was assaulted in Crichton's Close near the Royal Mile, after speaking at a tribute event to Scottish poet Tom Leonard, who died last year.
He was treated in hospital and later released.
