Olek

AGE RANGE: 18-28
GENDER: Male
LANGUGE: English

Olek, 20’, hadn't met his father since he was 4. His parents got separated, and his mother moved with him to another country. Newly graduated in computer science. His brand-less clothing and quiet appearance hide the need to be seen. His insecurity and the deep need for love show up in little gestures but never in words. Speaks English. He has never learned Spanish. No need to.

Role type: Lead role

Males, aged 18 to 28 from Leeds, United Kingdom

  • Height: 149 cm / 4ft 11in - 182 cm / 6ft 0in
  • Acting experience: No previous acting experience, Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Roberto

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: Must speak fluently another language other than English.
Roberto is a stern looking man with a unkempt beard and clothes that would be appropriate for a gardener or a veteran. He has the look of the old artist. After divorcing from Olek’s mother he has become a renowned writer, remarried and had two daughters. He appears to be the stronger one in his relationship with Olek, but his look hides an insecurity much like his son’s.

Males, aged 45 to 65 from Leeds, United Kingdom

  • Acting experience: No previous acting experience, Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Elena

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: Must be able to speak fluently another language other than English.
A strong and educated woman with a caring and warm attitude. She is perhaps more sensitive to Olek's feelings than his father, despite the little time they spend together. Genuine and spontaneous, her emotions burst to her face without filters. She is Roberto’s second wife.
Role type: Supporting role (Speaking)

Females, aged 45 to 58 from Leeds, United Kingdom

  • Acting experience: No previous acting experience, Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Nilda

Supporting Role

One of Roberto's admirers
