George Barton

George Barton is a tall, plump construction worker in his mid-forties. His large appearance stands in juxtaposition to his quiet demeanour. Some may call him a gentle giant. He comes from a lower-middle-class background and did not get the privilege of higher education. Having dropped out of school early to start working, he grew functionally illiterate. Since his wife passed away, he was forced to raise his daughter Amelia on his own.

Male, aged 42 to 46

Applications closed 11 January 2021.

Amelia Barton

Amelia is George’s eight-year-old daughter. She is, much like her dad, a little overweight, which often makes her subject to bullying in school. She looks up to her father in many ways: the strong bond between the two is undeniable. Recently she has found a new passion in writing poems. Amelia being rather smart for her age, it is no surprise that George’s secret will not stay one forever.

Female, aged 8 to 10

Jason is a hot-headed engineer in his mid-to-late 40s, who is currently leading a team of 20 workers on a construction site. He is not made for the stressful life he has found himself in. The responsibilities on his shoulders are starting to grey out his hair. He has a three-day-stubble. He looks dishevelled. Chain-smoking and cheap coffee are what get him through the day. He has been pushed around a lot in his life to earn his position.
