MAX is 16-18 (must be over 16 and happy to see young looking 20 year olds)
Hispanic, Latin American, Mediterranean, South American look… British accent.
No dancing required as they will have body doubles for the dancing element, but should have a dancer’s physique.
Paris Opera Ballet is a half hour long, Young Adult drama about Lena Grisky, a young
ballet dancer trying to navigate her way through the perils of adolescence in 2018. The fact that she is a time traveler from 1905 makes things just a little bit more interesting…..
In an attempt to escape her controlling parents, Lena and her boyfriend Henri, decide to run away together. A romantic effort to finally live their lives as their own, quickly turns into a tricky game of hide and seek…only Lena is not hiding. Through the power of a time travelling necklace given to Lena as a gift from Henri, Lena finds herself transported to 2018!
She wakes up in the same prestigious Paris ballet school she attends only things are VERY different! Confused, scared and unable to find Henri or a way home, Lena has to try to acclimate to her new surroundings. Will she ever find Henri again? Is he looking for her? Will she even want to go home if she’s found? Only time will tell…

Max ‘s playing age is 16 – 18 – happy to see people up to the age of 20 who look young
Max needs to look like he is originally from either Latin America, Cuba,Puerto Rico, Brazil or Spain.
He is Gorgeous, sexy, brooding, gifted and modern. Confident and fearless. He’s mysterious, and a rebel. Not because he’s got something to prove, but because that’s how he survives. He lives on the streets of Paris in his old beat up car – a secret he hides from all of his friends, especially his fancy girlfriend, Thea.
“Star dancer, heart throb, with charisma in spades, Max is as mysterious as they come. A real leader. Max’s life changes dramatically the second Lena arrives, he just doesn’t know it yet. Having grown up in the slums of Madrid, Max has a bit of a chip on his shoulder… at least that’s the story he’s told everyone.”
Max must have a strong dancers body.
In the script, Max’s main dance styles are ballet and contemporary but he excels at all styles. and he does ballet with an exciting edge.
