FULL NAME Isabella Guinevere Barat
AGE twenty five
SEXUALITY anything that moves
BIRTHDAY February 14 <3
- Bella has deep red hair that is practically auburn. She doesn't cut it except for a trim, so it is relatively long. Usually, she likes to keep her hair in loose waves, that is, when she's not on stage.
- Her eyes are a pale green. On a day to day basis they are rather placid, but when she's on stage they are very expressive.
- Clothing is everything to her. Period. Isabella loves designer things and everything she wears she can't afford. That doesn't stop her from buying $500 shoes.

Isabella is the type of girl who takes herself way too seriously, but she likes poking fun at everyone else. The girl can't stand it when her coworkers goof off during rehearsal. Honestly, that is the quickest way to get on her hit list. Without a doubt, she is a huge prima dona. In reality she didn't have to struggle much to get her first leading role, and things have been relatively easy for her because of it. To some extent this has created the monster within her; Bella thinks she is better than anyone. Sure, she'll listen to a performance, but in her mind she's thinking about how much better it would sound if she was singing it.
Despite the fact she has a decent income, Bella doesn't conserve her funds. She likes to spend her money on expensive clothing, the best restaurants, and overpriced materialistic items. Her costars always try to knock some sense into her and tell her to put some aside. Again, Isabella thinks she's above advice and doesn't heed their warnings.
When she isn't working, however, nothing is serious. Isabella doesn't take relationships seriously and is not faithful, at all. Her fun loving approach to life (outside of work) can be very appealing, so she does have a lot of friends. In school Bella was the party girl who everybody wanted to be with, and that hasn't really changed all that much. Unfortunately, alcohol is her favorite drink, and it has actually gotten to the point of it being a serious issue.
Isabella was the first and only child to Hugh and Nicolette Barat. Nicolette was a stage actress and Hugh was a celebrity lawyer. The family wanted for nothing, and as a result Bella was spoiled rotten, literally. For all of her childhood and early adulthood, Isabella was raised on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. When she was a little girl her parents insisted on homeschooling her, and then when it was time for her to go to high school they invested in the best private school they could.
The young girl loved musicals, and was always in awe whenever her mother sang. At a young age, her mom started teaching her things about singing and acting. It didn't take long for the girl to catch on, and when her mom discovered how lovely her voice actually was she invested on a professional voice teacher. Bella was considered very advanced for her age, and soon they discovered that she had the ever rare gift of being a coloratura with ridiculous high notes.
In high school, she was the popular girl on campus. All of the guys wanted to be with her and all of the girls wanted to be her. When she realized how much power she actually had over the student population she established herself as "Queen Bee," and always was dating the most desirable bachelor at school. When it was time for graduation, she applied to Tisch and inevitably got in.
College was a bit of a shock for her because she couldn't behave the same way she did in high school. There was competition for lead roles, and most people didn't appreciate her snobbish personality. As a result, she turned to heavy drinking which only hurt her grades. Her mother saw that her child was dwindling and had a few strings pulled so that she could play the alternate for Christine Daee on Broadway.
Isabella dropped out of college and started her performing career thanks to her mother. Her portrayal of Christine generated much praise, and she was soon promoted to the leading lady. After her run as Christine she played Julie Jordan in a special performance of Carousel, G(a)linda on Broadway, and other roles as well. Her career was a huge success, but it came to a crashing halt. Bella was dating a composer and writer who was in the process of writing a musical for her. Their relationship ended after Bella got pregnant with someone else's child, and she lost her part in the musical as a result.
Humiliated by her behavior, her mother insisted that the girl abort the child. Reluctantly Isabella listened to her mother, and to this day she regrets that decision. After it got around the Broadway community she was practically blacklisted by all casting directors. As a result, she started auditioning in other states for roles. Just recently she was cast as Christine Daee again for a production in Rhode Island. Hurt and humiliated, Isabella packed her bags and left her beloved New York City.
