Claire - SUPPORTING ROLE

Female, aged 16 to 20

Applications closed 22 October 2019.

Mother - SUPPORTING ROLE

Being a strict authority figure, Bella's Mum appears to care more about her families image and appearance rather than the wellbeing of her daughter. She is the typical ‘prim & proper’ mum, who is strict and harsh on Bella due to her rebellious nature but this only tends to make things worse. Her mother is more so the one to discipline Bella and establish the conflict between teenagers and authority.

Female, aged 35 to 50

Applications closed 22 October 2019.

Father - SUPPORTING ROLE

Compared to his wife, Bella's father is less likely to get involved with Bella's antics. However, Bella's disobedience won't take much for his anger and disapproval to take over. He is not afraid to set the punishments and step in when necessary. On the other hand, his wife is the one in charge and he makes sure not to interfere with that and does whatever to keep her happy.

Male, aged 40 to 55

Applications closed 22 October 2019.

Jayden - SUPPORTING ROLE
