So does Rita fit the bill? Here are Mia's character descriptions:-Age (22): Check! (Rita is 23)-Bubbly Personality: Check!-Tall: Rita is 5-foot-5, about average.-Curvaceous: Check!-Raven-Haired With a Sleek Bob: She's blonde, but we have no doubt that she'll dye and cut her hair if producers so desire.
