You could be the star

Those who dream of spending their days on the set of a hit TV show listen up.

On Saturday, May 21, an open casting call will be held between 10am and 3pm at Websters Theatre in Glasgow’s Great Western Road.

The BBC and the creative team from British teen drama, Skins, have joined up for a major new TV drama series, which centres on a group of female students at university in Scotland. The show, called Clique, is due to be aired in 2017.

They are looking for young women between the ages of 18 and 23, who are based in Scotland, to play the lead role. And if you’ve never done anything like this before, don’t worry, for previous professional acting experience is not necessary.

It could be the big break that leads to your dream job. Skins propelled many of its stars into successful careers in film and TV.

You can catch Nicholas Hoult aka Tony Stonem in the latest X-men outing, X-men: Apocalypse as Hank McCoy / Beast and previous films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Warm Bodies and A Single Man.

Dev Patel, who played Anwar Kharral on the show, went on to win several awards for his lead role in Slumdog Millionaire and has since appeared in Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom and films Chappie and the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Ex-Skins stars are also regular sights in the Game of Thrones series. Hannah Murray, who played Cassie Ainsworth, is wildling and new mum Gilly while Joe Dempsie, Chris Miles in Skins,
plays Gendry.
