The next candidates for your consideration are up.
More about the "part". A second grader who is crazy about art. Crazy as in eats. sleeps, breathes it.
She is a cross between Edna Mode/ Dieter from Sprockets and Tabitha from Salon Takeover on Bravo and the chick from Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World. She's a loveable KOOK. Not sweet - but fun. An individual that maybe not all of the kids "get"- but her passion is infectious.
OK- Here we go on my feelings:
Norma: You have the coolest Mom cause she let you dye your hair. You let your freak flag fly.
Mary: You suffer from the common misconception that art is "fashionable". Tho- nice hair. I like the mod edge.
Jessie: You are the one doodling on every single scrap of paper and test. Maybe you are the quiet artiste- not the gallery curator.
The part is for the kid that can lead a group of kids to put on an art show. Pick the character that you can hear yelling, arms in the air...."I LOVE IT!" - over and over.
OK - Vote someone in or out of the book. The top 3 will come to call backs and I'll do a few character poses for the final pick.
PS She will most likely wear the striped shirt - they all have a thing for striped french sailor tees- it's them, really ;)
