Carol first fell in love with acting in the 4th grade when she got the lead role in her class play, which started her on the path to becoming...a sorta working artist?
She is the ditziest smart person you will ever meet and is as comfortable as the vapid valley girl and as the nerdy Asian girl...but has the most fun being the bitchy girl.
Outside of Model Majority, Carol co-stars as Karen Chang on the web-series Bougie Betty, whose pilot was fiscally sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts. You may also find her as Penny on another web-series, Math Warriors, or looking annoyed and shocked in the background of random TV shows. She at times freelances as a video editor, director, and producer. Carol also bakes pastries, buys too much makeup, and is a nail polish addict.

Kayte would like to thank dogs, for being unapologetically wonderful and true to themselves.
Aramis Klein is an actor, writer, video editor, and water guzzling advocate. He's been trained in several techniques, including Shakespeare, only to squander it by making cringe-worthy content on youtube, along with acting in several commercials that showcase next to none of that training. With a penchant for making any situation awkward, he thrives on alienating anyone kind enough to engage him in conversation. Despite those idiosyncrasies his mission statement is somehow this "Act to unravel the connection we're all capable and deserving of. What you can't imagine, is someone else's truth.”
