*** NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED ***
RAJAN (POOJA’S DAD) – PRINCIPAL ROLE – MALE – 40s-50s – SOUTH ASIAN
Sometimes suffocating, and an impulsive know-it-all, Rajan, is an immigrant Indian father who just tries to do his best with his daughter. He often lectures Pooja, but deep down wants to be hip so she’ll like him more.
POOJA – PRINCIPAL ROLE – FEMALE – 15-21 YRS OLD – SOUTH ASIAN
Abrasive, loud, and easily excitable, Pooja is an Indo-Canadian sixteen-year-old girl, who wears her heart on her sleeve. A teenager of extremes – like a flame that can quickly turn into a raging fire, or extinguished instantly by a minor gust. She’s extremely honest, just not with herself.
MANPREET – PRINCIPAL ROLE – FEMALE – 15-21 YRS OLD – SOUTH ASIAN
An Indo-Canadian sixteen-year-old, Manpreet is a hard to impress, negative-Nancy, but her redeeming quality is her biting wit and dry sense of humour. She uses it to disguise her cynicism, and deflect criticism.
AMIT – PRINCIPAL ROLE – MALE – 15-21 YRS OLD – SOUTH ASIAN
Amit is a sixteen-year-old Indo-Canadian boy who’s impulsive, loud, and a perpetual bullshitter. He brags so much it’s tough to tell what’s real and what isn’t. His words may not be true, but his feelings always are…PRINCIPAL
JAMIE – PRINCIPAL ROLE – FEMALE – 15-21 YRS OLD – WEST INDIAN
Jamie is a seventeen-year-old, Trinidadian girl, who has more swag than all the characters combined. She’s an attention-seeking bully, but charismatic and a natural leader. She’s one of the popular kids in school.
ROHIT – PRINCIPAL ROLE – MALE – 16-21 YRS OLD – SOUTH ASIAN
Rohit is a nineteen-year-old Indo-Canadian alpha male. He’s competitive, cynical, but family-oriented and loyal. He just wants the best for his friends and family even if it means breaking the rules.
VRIND – ACTOR ROLE – FEMALE – 15-21 YRS OLD – SOUTH ASIAN
Uncomfortable in her skin, shy, and passive, Vrinda, is an Indo-Canadian teenage girl that doesn’t know who she is yet, so often finds herself in situations she doesn’t want to be in.
