Misha Bravo; Lead
No ethnicity specified for this role.
Cuban; fair-skinned or dark-skinned or black. Have to look young enough to play the character in her teens for a flashback. No Spanish required. Knowledge of 1977 punk culture a plus (i.e. Vivienne Westwood; music of NY from 1972-?78). Heavy dialogue in long takes so memorization assets are of value.
This sweet and independently-minded 'black sheep' of her family is living in her car, not only as a way to prove to her card-shark father that she is able to stand on her own two feet, but for the experience. A manic depressive/hopeless romantic punk rocker (whose closest ties are with a group of pop-culture obsessed absurdist misfits) she becomes the idol of Tommy Buscavida's temptation, a childhood friend she hasn't seen in X number of years. Stubborn and opinionated, but quiet only until questioned; she will revaluate the severed link between she and her blood-family.
