[X-RAY: YOUNG MOTHER] Female. Late-20’s to Early-30’s. Ethnically Ambiguous or African American. Brunette – or even lighter hair with highlights – reddish ok. Lighter skin tone. Thin and feminine, but physically capable. A girl who is naturally pretty, but a no-nonsense, do-it-herselfer. Someone who was probably a tomboy as a kid who grew into a beautiful woman. Someone like Tristin Mays or Nathalie Emmanuel.

[EAR INFECTION: MOTHER] Female. Late-30’s. Caucasian. Brunette. Attractive. A woman with a career and two kids. Someone who can do the whole executive thing, but at the end of the day is a bad ass woman who loves her children and can take action. Maybe someone like Emilia Clark or Ellen Page.

[EAR INFECTION: BOY] Male. 5-7 years old (should be small, so they read younger). Caucasian. Brunette. Sweet. Cute. Adorable (so we feel bad when he’s in pain). Needs to look like our mom is his mom.  Would be good to cast him in his PJ’s.

[SUTURES: GUY} Male. Late-30’s. Caucasian. Brunette. Works at an office, but has a love for cars and restoring them. He isn’t the stereo-typical car maintenance blue collar guy, but does have a bit of a rugged streak in him. Handsome.

[FEMALE PROVIDER #1] Female. Early-40’s. Asian. Smart, confident, approachable and caring. Someone who looks together, yet warm and friendly. Someone like Maggie Q or Yum Jung Ah’.

[FEMALE PROVIDER #2] Female. Early-40’s. Caucasian. Brunette. Smart, confident and together. Very approachable and pretty, but looks extremely intelligent. Someone like Natalie Portman.
