Character Descriptions and Notes (plus Storyline if applicable):
[YOUNG MOM] Female. Early to Mid-30’s. Caucasian. Prefer brunette or dark red hair. Very naturally pretty. In-shape – thin but fit. Relatable. Strong, competent, does it all. Professional working mom – takes care of the kids and her high-powered job, even when she gets sick. Should have good facial expressions – not over the top. She moves through life quickly – Reactions need to be quick to convey mood efficiently. Think Lauren Cohan or Morena Baccarin.
[BOSS] Female. Mid-40’s. Caucasian. Prefer blonde. Attractive. High-powered executive – boss to Mom. Assertive, confident, direct. She is all business – a power-play kind of career woman – doesn’t notice or care that her employee is sick. A bit narcissistic – Very involved in her own world and doesn’t notice those around her much. Think a younger version of Meryl Streep in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’. Someone like a slightly older version of Rosamund Pike.
[GOHEALTH PROVIDER] Male. Early-30’s to Early-40’s. Asian or Caucasian. Good-looking, warm, friendly. A smart, confident, professional-looking Asian (preferred) male. Someone who got into medicine because he truly cares about people. He’s able to grasp the bigger picture with his patients, like he understand the other parts of their life and things they’ve been going through. Very caring – you can see in his eyes that he cares about his patients. Think Daniel Dae Kim.
