Your role within the Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls family: I play Wendy
How would you describe your character? She is described as weird, scary, a mammal, a fruitcake, and "kind of mean and slutty" by other characters in the show. She is fascinated by true stories, bad things, geology, and anthropology. She is a temp, an actress, and a hula dancer, but she is having trouble figuring out who she really is. Wendy can be intense and abrasive, but she has a lot of love to give and through a lot of trial and error she discovers how to give that love and who to give it to.
