    Hi my name is sammi!! I’m 13 and live in a suburb of Boston
    I would really live to audition for Eleanor
    I’m 5’4 and told to be skinny.
    I have long brown hair, olive skin, and brown/green eyes.
    Although my legs, arms and body are skinny, I am slightly busty (32b).
    I love acting and think this role would be perfect for me because I can relate to the character which would help make everything more realistic!
    My parents ended their relationship in a very bad state and have been moving all over for years. I’m attracted to Eleanor’s character.

    Hi, my name is Grecia Gonzales,14 and I am 5’2 and have dark brown Hair, light skin, light brown eyes. Also Hispanic, I have clear English and spanish not much of an accent. I saw this role and I feel like I have what It takes. I’m a hard worker love to act also when it comes to business I don’t play around until the job is done correctly. I stay focused at all times. I love drama, comedy and romance movies and always wanted to be in one especially like this one, I live in Kansas so it’s really difficult to find auditions for anything here so I have to submit myself to different things, I have a serious side but then again I am 14 and just an Average teen with a normal teen life and attitude. But when it comes to business I tend to change into a serious worker. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Thank you for your time.
