Music fans given chance to star in Skins

Anyone who goes to the Skins Live Tour will get a script

Skins is to scout for new actors for its third series on the upcoming Skins Live Tour.

The E4 teen drama, which has just axed its entire cast, will send a script to all ticket holders and hold auditions for new parts at the parties, running throughout April and May.

“We’ve been hunting for identical twin girls and a Polish guy through SkinsLife.com and we’ve had a fantastic response,” said the show’s co-creator and executive producer Bryan Elsley. “We’re now looking for all sorts of people for Series Three – from extras all the way up to lead roles.”

Unsigned bands can bag a slot on the tour, set to feature shows by Crystal Castles, The Teenagers, Cut Off Your Hands, XX Teens and The Rascals, by winning a competition on SkinsLife.com.
