Cast

CHRISTIAN BAXTER:

Early-Mid thirties. Property Developer. Successful and very wealthy (self made.) He comes from a regular, blue collar upbringing. He is self absorbed, vain, and arrogant; he is also indulging in some extracurricular activities that may backfire.

BILLIE ROMAN (BAXTER):

Early thirties. Wife to Christian. She is a Professional Blogger who writes about self-help and motivation, and she is desperate to have a baby. She is about to sign a coveted book deal with a well-known publishing house. She is driven, well spoken but a total stress head (doesn’t usually live what she teaches). Lately she is more high-strung than usual because of the anticipation of the book deal, along with the fact she is having difficulty falling pregnant.

VIVIAN BAXTER:

Christian’s younger sister. Mid twenties. Beautiful, vivacious, boho, wanton. She is intelligent and usually confident but can be petulant and childish around her family as they trigger old insecurities. She is a full time university student who likes men… and lots of them.

TREVOR BAXTER:

Early twenties. The youngest brother of Christian & Vivien. Mollycoddled and spoiled by his mother. He is an oddball, and completely random. He recently joined the Army… with interesting results.

BOB BAXTER:

Christian’s father. Sixtyish. Loud, boisterous and total chauvinist. He is a recently retired Council Foreman and former amateur boxer. He is a real man’s man who enjoys laughing at his own vulgar jokes.

HELEN BAXTER:

Christian’s mother, married to Bob. She is dramatic, theatrical and judgmental. She loves to gossip at the bowls club yet doesn’t like being on the receiving end. She worries incessantly about what people think.

GRANDMA BAXTER:
