Role Description

Boris: (Lead) looks 16, height & weight proportionate for his age, cute looks, more of a baby face; innocent looking; vulnerable, someone who wears heart on their sleeves, attending a new public school for his junior year of high school, has a speech impediment and has been stuttering since age four. Because of his speech troubles, Boris is insecure of his social interactions and behavior, and internalizes most of his issues & emotions. He is the cautionary type and takes time warming up to people. He is usually not the first person to take initiative in a social setting and thus can seem reclusive. With that said, Boris is smart, kind, respectful and determined, regardless of the challenges he faces; minor Spanish speaking skills is a plus.
