AminataBoth genders30-39 y.o.African-American

NdidiBoth genders20-29 y.o.African-American

(Female Identifying, Nigerian) The young spitfire. She dresses the youngest and braids the fastest. Everyone at the shop knows that she makes the most money, and it doesn’t always go over well - especially with Bea, who accuses her of stealing clients. "JAJA'S AFRICAN HAIR BRAIDING"

MiriamBoth genders30-39 y.o.African-American

(Female Identifying, Sierra Leonean) Quiet and kind. She has a five-year-old daughter back in Sierra Leone, who she is trying to bring to America.

Chrissy: (Female Identifying, 30s) Very particular about her hair and adamant that they “make her look like Beyonce.” Michelle: (Female Identifying, 20s) The nervous client who doesn’t want trouble or confrontation and just wants to get her hair done peacefully. A former client of Bea’s who has come to have her hair done by Ndidi, without realizing they’re in the same shop. LaNiece: (Female Identifying, 30s) A really messy eater. "JAJA'S AFRICAN HAIR BRAIDING"

Vanessa/Radia/SheilaBoth genders18-39 y.o.African-American

Radia: (Female Identifying, 18ish) One of Marie’s former classmates whose “just catching up” conversation highlights the differences between the opportunities available to them.

MEGBoth genders40-49 y.o.All ethnicities

(Female Identifying). Suzy’s mother. A real estate agent, which is probably not what she expected to be doing at this point in her life. A little harried: her house is messy, and she’s the kind of person who’s always running a little bit late. Wears all her feelings on her outside. Wants urgently to be there for her beloved, odd duck of a child, but is bewildered about how to help. Recently divorced from Suzy’s dad Jim, and still has lingering feelings about it all. "THE THING ABOUT JELLYFISH"

JIMBoth genders40-49 y.o.All ethnicities

(Male Identifying). Suzy’s dad. A systems guy, meticulous. Likes order, planning; he’s the kind of person who takes pride in how he packs a car. Doesn’t love single parenting, and as a result he doesn’t always provide Suzy with the best environment on her nights at his place. A lot of take out, tv, etc. Like Meg, he’s baffled by Suzy, and by her silence, but he, too, will do anything for her. Thinking about the divorce, what went wrong, only sends him backwards. "THE THING ABOUT JELLYFISH"

JAMIEBoth genders50-69 y.o.All ethnicities

(Male Ident.), based in Australia & speaks with an Australian accent. A charismatic, passionate biologist. Larger than life. He can deliver a TED talk, go on TV, jump fearlessly into jellyfish-infested waters, grab a deadly box jellyfish without batting an eye. For Jamie, life is the ultimate adventure. He’s deeply charming & also oddly intuitive – it's a little magical, at times. His relationship with Suzy works because he treats her like a peer, not like a kid. "THE THING ABOUT JELLYFISH"

ADULT AUTHORITY FIGURESBoth genders40-59 y.o.All ethnicities

(Franny’s Mom/Mrs. Turton/Dr. Legler/Wallace/Naomi/Angela/Ticket Agent. Female Identifying) Multiple adult tracks including Franny's mom, Suzy's science teacher Mrs. Turton, Suzy's therapist and many other real and imagined figures in Suzy's life.
