The questions I ask myself…(Minor/Walk On Characters)

Here are the questions I answer for Minor/Walk On Characters. I only use the things that apply.  If they don’t have a romantic plot point in the story, I don’t care about it.  If they don’t speak, I don’t care about voice.  However, if they do, I darn well better know these things.
