Male Actor Required for Main Role in Short Film Student Drama
CHARACTER BIOGRAPHY - JESSE JONES, 19
Jesse is a runner. Always running whether it be from his problems or on the racecourse. Jesse is a smart 'kid' as everyone likes to refer to him as. Smart enough to realise that history is about to repeating itself. Growing up, Jesse was exposed to a life of abuse, drugs, and alcohol because of his parents. Despite that, Jesse has his head screwed on, gets good grades and his hobby is the school track team. Outside of his house Jesse appears to be cheeky, happy, and mature. Since the age of 16 Jesse has worked, paper rounds, dog walking, and now works in a coffee shop. Nearly 20, Jesse wants out of his broken so-called family. The only thing stopping him is his father (Ian Jones). Jesse and his father have never had a good relationship. Since a kid, Jesse has found himself being a victim of domestic abuse from his father. Now, Jesse can see the same happening to his little sister Zoe.

Jesse and Zoe have a great relationship. Jesse is the one who picks her up and takes Zoe home from school, helps with her homework, and sometimes cooks when their parents can't be bothered. Zoe looks up to Jesse and Jesse feels obligated to save her childhood. Jesse and mum Aaliyah were extremely close, but as Jesse grew older/wiser, he realised that his mum was staying with a man who was everything she had taught her son not to be.
Jesse wants out and will do anything to ensure that happens.
