Ron – Mark Rylance
Married. Retired. 50s+ in age. Uncle or possibly just friend of Ron. An ice fishing enthusiast. A loner. He tolerates Ron’s presence because Ron is happy to talk without much response and Ron says unpredictable things. He is able to be fatherly to Ron without any responsibility. Eric is not necessarily bitter, though people might think it of him. He takes great pride in his equipment, in having the right equipment to deal with what this world hands you, the side of a mountain, a snow blocked road, an ocean trench. He will be ready. Obviously, the actor needs to be convincingly Minnesota or one of the surrounding states. A good dry sense of humor. Good memory. Good sense of play. Magnetic. Interior.
Actually Freya, the immortal Goddess of eternal youth. 25-35 playing age. A young woman, not a girl. With an enduring youthfulness and curiosity for everything. Spontaneous, joyful, sorrowful. Very present. In love with this world of human beings and sensations. Naturally sensual. Very open hearted. Imaginative. A very old soul, immortal, underneath her lightness. Dances. Enigmatic. Appears at first in a bikini or towel.
A construction worker and devoted spear fisherman. Actually Faz; An ancient giant in love with Freya. Took part in the ancient battles between the Giants and the Gods. He can be threatening one minute and silly the next, totally putting you off guard. Something of a wild animal, the tiger may sit on the chair like a pussycat, and then bite your head off. Menacing. Unstable as a volcano or an earthquake. Physically strong but not necessarily big or tall, though we will be happy to see big, tall men. Could be any age but not too young or too old.
Actually, Fafnor, another ancient giant. Brother to Faz. A hardanger fiddle player with few words who needs to simulate ice skating if possible. Also a construction worker.
An Officer from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
An authoritarian man or young man.
