Hollywood star Samuel L Jackson shocked revellers in Glasgow by appearing at the side of the stage during one of the city’s most popular club nights.

The 74-year-old actor had the best seat in the house for Bongo’s Bingo at SWG3 on Saturday night – days after being spotted filming a new crime thriller in West Lothian.

He was later pictured with some of the stars of the show, which attracts audiences of hundreds across the country, and was filmed grabbing a clip of some of the dancers during the performance.

Organiser Ste Taylor described the experience as “surreal” and joked he hoped to see the Pulp Fiction star return before jetting home.

“We were in the middle of playing a game of bingo and I looked over to the side of the stage, I was gobsmacked,” he said.

“Me and the tech who was nearby were kind of looking at each other and nodding. He was just chilled out and enjoying the show.

“One of our dancers was up and he had his phone out filming and then we had our rave round and he was chucking glow sticks into the crowd and batting balloons back and forth.”

Jackson is in Scotland to film Damaged – a crime thriller about a Chicago detective on the trail of a string of murders alongside Gianni Capaldi, Kate Dickie and John Hannah.

The film, which also stars Westworld’s Vincent Cassel, is being directed by Terry McDonough.

Ste joked that he would not rule out Bongo’s Bingo making a cameo in the movie.

“It was a bit of a surreal experience We got to meet him afterwards and he was a nice guy, really friendly,” he said.

“We got a picture with him, but we didn’t want to impose. I think he just enjoyed his night and then headed off.

“Maybe he’ll be back again. If he’s filming in Scotland, he might show his face again soon.”

The actor has also linked up with a charity by signing a Rangers home shirt to be raffled off to benefit two organisations in the city.

Jackson inscribed his name on the shirt, which will be sold off to raise money for the Emmie Smillie Charity Foundation and South Lanarkshire’s Kilbryde Hospice.
