Her many talents include, piano, dance, martial-arts, baton twirling and/or something unique to the actor.

Jud Fry [male, Baritone] (18-35) Described as dark and growly by others, Jud takes care of the ranch Aunt Eller and Laurey live on. Jud does not fit in the society that he lives with, he is seen by most as an outsider and misunderstood. He has feelings for Laurey, but has become dangerously obsessed. Although he acts the villain of the story, he has an underlying emotional complexity that makes him a sympathetic character.
