Role # 6 - Dr. Madden Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
very much like a classic rock star, but also able to sing very conversationally. Diana’s handsome psychiatrist who slips in and out of being a “rock star” in Diana’s fantasies. He encourages Diana to delve into her past in a way that other doctors have not, resulting in subsequent highs and lows for Diana. Attempts hypnosis with her, so an ability to take on a calm & hypnotic demeanor that contrasts with the “rock star” is appreciated. Doubles as Diana’s psychopharmacologist Dr. Fine, who is much more rigid and formal.
