Role Description

A man in his 40’s. His behaviour and image must reflect a conventional style, guided by traditions and a cost-benefit way of thinking which always prevents him of risks (as a consequence of his successful career in the finance sector). Stéphan is a silent man who prefers listening to people rather than talking to them.
Although he is gay, he is still in the closet; his relationship with Julian has changed important parts of him such as travelling unexpectedly and purchasing expensive articles, including a Ferrari, things that he wouldn’t do if Julian was not in his life. Although he is a wealthy man his values make him live in a low-key way. This character is preferred to be white, handsome, elegant, and he is expected to behave masculine in a traditional way.

Thank you for your attention, Edgar.
