Role Description

Lilo: (Lead) confident, smart and genuine, has been Tommy’s friend for as long as she can remember…two peas in a pod, is watching a movie with her class and has a whispered conversation with Tommy (there is as much nonverbal communication between them as there is verbal), very expressive with her eyes; this gives away her feelings of concern and ultimately excitement as she transitions from her conversation with Tommy revealing his desire to attend university abroad, to her deciding to go with him, and dealing with the initial anxiety/excitement of her first day living in a new country.

SCRIPT EXCERPT

EXT. NEW YORK STREET - DAY
A NYC Taxi pulls up to the curb. A familiar tune plays on the radio. LILO gathers her stuff while TOMMY pays the driver.
(Bright lights, just ahead of us...)
TOMMY (confidently)
Thank you... keep the change.
Lilo looks out the window, her apprehensive expression reflecting in the glass. She clutches tightly to her bag as the sounds of the city whizz musically by her head. Tommy notices her concern.
You okay?
TOMMY (CONT’D)
LILO
It’s just... it’s our first day
here. I’m a little nervous, that’s all.
TOMMY (poking fun)
You? Nervous? (sweetly)
You’re the bravest person I know.
(Believe in me, believe in yourself now...)
Tommy slides out of the car and sets his bag down on the sidewalk. Smiling from ear-to-ear, he reaches into the taxi and extends his open hand to Lilo.
(There’s no place, our dreams can’t reach today...)
7.
TOMMY (CONT’D) C’mon Lilo, let’s fly.
LILO hands Tommy her bag which he quickly grabs and sets down. He re-extends his hand and Lilo takes takes it as she slides out of the Taxi grinning from ear-to-ear.
(Full Hello, hello, hello Chorus)
The camera goes up and shows TOMMY, LILO gather their bags and start walking down the street. As the camera pulls back, the music we hear on the radio in the beginning begins mix in with the sounds of the city... the music slowly takes over.
