- Vanda – 20-29, female. Seems flighty and ditzy but is actually highly intelligent and a master manipulator. Must be able to easily transform from a desperate, quirky actress into a powerful seductress. Funny, sexy, and scary all at the same time.

- Li’l Bit – 30-45, female. Physically 35 but plays as young as age 11. Is described as having had the body of a 20-year-old at age 12 and having a “fire in her head.” Can be funny, smart, sensual, and vulnerable all at once.

- Peck – 40-49, male. Physically 45 but plays the character from age 38. Is described as having a “fire in his heart” and “though having a few problems, could be cast as Atticus in To Kill A Mockingbird.” A southern gentleman, good looking, and charismatic.
