  1. I'm Charlie, 20years old, French girl who live in London now. Why I should be part of this serie..? Maybe because I'm really motivated, even if I'm still young, I left my country and I'm studying Drama, Voice, Movement, Dance, Actor Combat, and also my English and my accent. I would like to be part of it, because I want to work, I want challenges, I want to start again after Paris.
    It is perhaps not very original, but I feel it could be a perfect project for me…
    Best regards,


  2. I have the look you want in all areas. I know little to nothing about the era of this time, but i can assure that i can help this series be the best it can be. Even though this series is based on the 70's, the 80's helped me through the hard times in my life. So I've learned a lot and i can become any image you need for the series. I can also pop lock, which is a style of dancing. Wanting to act wasn't something that just came about. I was born to act on film! making up my own plays in front of my family for their entertainment was my passion and still is. Don't think anyone else that wants to be apart of this series wants it more then i do.
