[LILY] (Lead) Female / Any Ethnicity / 18-25
Thin and somewhat frail with a painted red lip. She is a misunderstood poet. She’s the black sheep of her family. Her parents are wealthy, stubborn, stuck-up, and her mother is a Cruella DeVille type, but Lily is an artistic romantic; a dreamer. Yet, she is a drinker, because she is misunderstood in her world. (smokes pot / drug and alcohol use depicted in the script)
Shoots 6 Days. $125/Day.
[JENA] (Supporting) Female / Any Ethnicity 18-25 A slick mouth soul sista she’s sexy with curves and every bone in her body is “bad.” She’s sexy AND sexually experienced, she’s been in the streets to know what’s going on. Hip to LA. Not sheltered. More mature. Promiscuous. Free with her sexuality. (smokes pot / drug and alcohol use depicted in the script)
Shoots 3-4 Days. $125/Day
[LILY's MOTHER] (Supporting) Female / Any Ethnicity / 40's
Must look mature enough to have a 19-year old daughter. A confidently cruel woman who likes expensive silk pajamas and hot cocoa. She is wealthy and well-groomed with the finer things in life, and concerns herself with her reputation. She is stubborn, stuck-up, and referred to as a “Cruella DeVille" type. For casting, the ethnicity is not specified, but she will need to look believably like she is the mother of the lead LILY.
Shoots 2 Days. $125/Day
[AMBER] (Supporting) Female / Any Ethnicity 18-25 A greasy aggressive hood chick, she wears a black heavy metal t-shirt that drapes over black shorts with high white socks tucked into black vans. Hardened by drugs and experiences. Manipulative and a boss from the streets. She’s a swindler, out for herself. Not your best friend. Was homeless and doesn’t want to go back to that. (smokes pot / drug and alcohol use depicted in the script)
Shoots 2 Days. $125/Day
