In-between takes, actors will be asked to wear masks again.

Character 1
Emily Jones
26 (20 - 28 years old)
Very career driven and although she is currently a sous-chef, she is working to open her own restaurant. She comes from a big family, and has 5 older sisters. All of whom are either pregnant, stay-at-home moms or trying to have kids with their husbands. Always having someone around, between her sisters and then Nick, has made her less independent than she'd like to be.
Character 2
Nick Davis
32 (25 - 35 years old)
Nick Davis is an interior designer. He had always loved design but started in culinary school to be able to secure himself a job. He dropped out and started an interior design consultancy with a high school friend. Emily is his first real relationship. Nick is an only child and his dad never let him take anything too seriously - school, girls, himself. So after growing up with just himself and his dad, he had always wanted to start a big family.
