Roommate of Vanessa. Big-sister type. Very social and will never turn down an opportunity to party. Wants to know why Vanessa is not dressed and ready for a party they have been planning to attend for weeks. IMPORTANT: Must be okay with swearing (using curse words). However, there is nothing derogatory in the screenplay. [VANESSA] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 21-28] [ETHNICITY: AFRICAN AMERICAN]
Roommate to Doris. Laid back personality. Can be a partier, but just as content with being a homebody. Hasn’t revealed to Doris that she has changed her mind about attending the party they have been planning to go to for weeks. IMPORTANT: Must be okay with swearing (using curse words). However, there is nothing derogatory in the screenplay.
