"THE CREW" Series Character
'THE CREW' Writer / Showrunner Trayce Gardner & Writing Team Contributors
TO CREATE HER OWN WRITERS ROOM, THE CREW Writer / Showrunner recruited Actors willing to share their own backgrounds, do research, improv, and brainstorm over the Characters. In the workshops everyone was thinking like Writers, and Actors often came up with ideas for Characters other than the ones they themselves were playing.
ANTHONY & HIS CREW
Janki Patel *
Creative and opinionated,
tries to wake others up
but Adiva's own personal
uptightness gets in way.
* Janki was a last minute fill-in for our videotaped workshop. We will be casting again for ADIVA.
It's not easy being Anthony!
Certain of his own abilities and vision, but not so sure how to
proceed in the world and
in his relationships
THE OBJECT OF ANTHONY'S PURSUIT
THE FAMOUS ACTOR (34)
FAMILY, FRIENDS, ENEMY, CREW-TO-BE
Miriam Robertson *
She wants control so never lets go;
afraid all dreams end in disaster.
* Miriam, Director of the Brownsville Heritage House was our stand-in BETTY when we did our workshops at the Heritage House.
Maksym (Max) Druzhynskyi *
Declaring himself over the hill
at 29, he watches and judges.
* Max got us permission to shoot at the cafe he
worked at, and stood-in as our DMITRI in
the workshops. Max is now studying acting.
On the run from family responsibilities back home;
he’s a quick learner
who’s too prideful to admit
when he needs help.
GEORGE WHITE-GW (28)
Travis is constantly
transforming into characters
from beloved films – as he ignores the basics
of everyday life and
his disturbing family history.
