Talia - dancer body double
Confident, witty 19-year-old with exceptional talent. Cynical and masculine, Talia is emotionally closed-off due to the absence of her father and uses dance to express her feelings. After achieving the role of Aurora in a ballet production of Sleeping Beauty, Talia leaves her mother behind but is drugged and raped (this will not be shown on-screen) by her ballet director. Attempting to cope with this trauma, Talia will have to reconcile with her Mother and fight for the freedom of her body.
