Charlie RoussosRole Description
Charlie is a 15-year-old London boy, topped in the concrete hell of 2112. He is a boy with great potential but no opportunities, and feels lost and angry at what life has presented him. He acts out at school, often turning up late or not at all. His short temper causes him to get into conflict with those around him easily. At home, he is ignored bye his over-worked mother, who he struggles to connect with. He is a broken boy, looking for structure in an otherwise falling world.
When he connects with Dr. Narson, however, he started to change. He becomes intrinsically happier and more focussed, finally finding some hope to hold onto.
Looking for an emotional actor, able to deliver great, believable performances of anger, sadness, intrigue, and happiness.
