MONIQUE “MO” MORRIS: 15, African-American, born and raised in Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighborhood. Mo is fiery and street-wise with a sharp tongue, keen wit and larger-than-life personality. There’s nothing Monique is afraid to say and no one she’s afraid to say it to … at least that’s what she’ll have you believe.
Actresses with serious athletic or dance experience are especially encouraged to apply. Must be 18 or older.
Set in Brownsville, Brooklyn, FIRST MATCH tells the story of a teenage girl who joins the all-boys high school wrestling team in order to reconnect with her father, himself a former wrestler, who’s just been released from prison.
