The View made me feel truly Shameless

Filming powerful new army drama The Mark of Cain in the heat of the Sahara desert was hell for actor Gerard Kearns.

But it was nothing compared to spending two days in Dundee with Scots rockers The View when he starred in the video for their latest single, The Don/Skag Trendy.

The 22-year-old - who shot to fame as Ian Gallagher in hit comedy-drama Shameless - is a down-and-out drug addict in the promo.

And Gerard claims he looked the part after partying with Scotland's new music heroes.

He laughed: "Are The View rock 'n' roll? Totally. I was playing this guy who was wasted and I didn't need much in the way of make-up. It was a bit of method acting.

"I had a brilliant time. I'm a big fan of the band and bought their album, Hats Off To The Buskers, on the first day it was released, so it was a bit special to appear in the video."
