IVY / SAG-AFTRA / Principal / Female / All Ethnicities / 6-8
[IVY] Ivy is a quiet, neat, and well-behaved 7 year-old girl who loves to read and has very deep thoughts. However, Ivy also has an exceptional imagination. She’s studying to be a witch and spends time memorizing her spell book and making potions. Ivy has great ideas but until now they mostly stayed in her head and then she meets Bean and realizes she has found a 7-year-old soulmate who will help her put those ideas into action. Together they will have so much more fun than either of them had separately.
NANCY / SAG-AFTRA / Principal / Female / All Ethnicities / 11-14
[NANCY] Nancy is Bean’s older sister. She’s between 11 and 14 years old and isn’t exactly grown-up…but she thinks she is. She loves buying clothes, chatting on the phone to her friends and putting on mom’s make-up…but most of all she loves bossing 7 year-old Bean around, especially when mom isn’t there. She rarely wants to play games with Bean anymore although the truth is that she sometimes misses the fun they used to have – but she would never admit it.
BEAN / SAG-AFTRA / Principal / Female / All Ethnicities / 6-8

Initially, Bean labels Ivy as “BORING!” but upon realizing Ivy has a vivid imagination, and is training to be a witch, Bean knows she has found her 7-year-old soulmate.
