Muzzy Van Hossmere
A glamorous actress and singer at a night club. She becomes Millie's friend and mentor. *It is the authors' preference that, for thematic reasons, the role of Muzzy be played by an actress of color as an African-American character. Within an American context, Muzzy being African-American resonates very differently than her being caucasian because show business was traditionally one of the only ways an African American could circumvent the worst of racism and embark on the same kind of self-reinvention that Millie is attempting -- and, in 1922, there were limited avenues for that trajectory available to African-Americans. That said, from a narrative perspective, the story can be told no matter what the race of the actress playing Muzzy, so if your talent pool doesn't include a qualified actress of color, cast another kind of actress.
