THE PRIORITY FOR THE FOLLOWING ROLES IS THAT THE ACTORS LIVE IN PRAGUE:

BEJAN. 40-50s. Lead. E. European villain. Has a finger in lots of pies- runs a Parisian Casino as well as heading a human trafficking ring. Dangerous to know. Has several scenes. Speaks English with accent.
REGINA. aged 17. E. European, very pretty. A victim of the slave trade. Working as a prostitute in Paris. a few lines in English with accent.
RAYA. Ivana’s sister. Pretty and innocent. Speaks only Russian (does not need to be native speaker.) Aged 15.
THERE WILL BE OTHER ROLES BUT THE SCRIPT IS CHANGING SO STAY TUNED.
