Character Breakdown / Project Needs
[MOLLY] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-35] [RACE/ETHNICITY: ALL]
Molly is a hard working graphic artist, who after losing her father to cancer at 18, has shut down emotionally. She lives alone and doesn't have many friends. She has one friend from college where she was too busy with her studies and dealing with her grief to go out and party. She is sexually naive and bi - sexual. Her relationship to her mother is very complicated. She loves her mom but also tries to please her mom and take care of her too. She decided that being a loner is better than having to trust people who she feels will ultimately disappoint her.
*This character has a make out scene. No full nudity.
[LOUISE] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE:50-60] [RACE/ETHNICITY: ALL]
LOUISE is Molly’s emotionally overbearing mother. She loves her daughter to pieces but doesn't always know what her daughter needs or how to be there. The death of her husband was really hard on her and she wasn’t always emotionally present, but did the best that she could. She never wants to see her daughter go through the same experience. She’s determined and will never give up. Underneath the overwhelming emotions she feels, she is strong and brave and a survivor.
[JACKIE] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 28-35] [RACE/ETHNICITY: ANY]
Jackie is charismatic, sexually liberated and used to be a big party girl in college. She went to the same liberal arts school as Molly, and they were roommates.
