Role Description

Hispanic Lady: (Supporting) must speak fluent Spanish, accented English, must be able to play average looking who comes from a lower middle class family with a heart of gold, an extremely hard worker and lives paycheck to paycheck, very integral role to the story. The Lady has a sudden and inconvenient encounter with Boris that turns out to be a pivotal twist to the story. She is a Hispanic immigrant (either Puerto Rican or Mexican or central American) and is a very hard working woman. She is an equal breadwinner of the family, and thus being responsible and frugal is necessary to take care of the family. She is constantly in a hurry and therefore has little time to waste. She is very patient and able to keep her cool under dire situations. However, there are certain circumstances when she is known to blow a fuse.
