CASTING ATTRIBUTES

Features Children, Features Teens

JACLYN GOLDING - Thirteen. Went into a coma at age eight; five years later, she wakes up and finds she’s been replaced by a girl her parents have adopted Ruthie. 
RUTHIE GOLDING - Thirteen. Proper, polite, and a manipulative snake. 
JOE GOLDING - Seventeen. Kinda dumb and indifferent since he was never the family favorite anyway. 
MIKE GOLDING - Eight. Kind of whiny, and a devotee of flag football who dreams of playing in the NFL (which will never happen). His memories have been twisted by Ruthie. 
RALPH GOLDING (DAD) - Over-emotional, dopey dad. 
ADAIRE GOLDING (MOM) - She runs the house; 1950s mom.
