Role Description

Damir: (Lead) Damir originates from somewhere in south-east of Europe. Probably from Turkey or North of Africa (Algeria, Morocco). A modern man, with knowledge of English, but still has a strong accent from his roots. Works in a restaurant to make ends meet, but dreams of a life beyond that. For him every day is about surviving till he can achieve that dream and “conquer” Hollywood. A born actor, he has used that skill to navigate everyday life, including hiding who he truly is. At heart he is an artist, but forced by circumstance and conditioning he has developed an aggressive side. That being said, he is a dreamer full of enthusiasm for life as he battles demons internal and external including a fake marriage, hiding his homosexuality, lack of money, and support in a country and culture he is adapting to.
