Felicia Dantine: Andrew Rally's real estate broker, Felicia Dantine claims that she can speak to the dead; however, her séance arranged to speak with the ghost of Barry more appears on the surface to have been a failure.
Andrew Rally: Young and popular, Andrew Rally is a television actor and star of a recently canceled soap opera. He just moved to New York City from Los Angeles, where he will soon be playing Hamlet on stage. He is both overwhelmed and chagrined by the challenge, because it is the stage, not Hollywood, and because it is perhaps the most difficult role every written. However, he has unwittingly moved into the apartment of the deceased John Barrymore, perhaps the greatest Shakespearean actor who ever lived.
Deirdre McDavey: Attractive and emotional, Deirdre McDavey is Rally's girlfriend. She is committed, much to his annoyance, to "saving herself" until they are married.
Lillian Troy: Rally's agent, Lillian Troy is in her early twenties but remembers fondly an affair she had with John Barry more many years ago, in the apartment Rally now lives in.
John Barrymore: A lengendary actor, John Barrymore, or, rather, his ghost is still quite active (in many ways) and appears to help Rally in the nuances of both acting and love.
Gary Peter Lefkowitz: A cocky, pompous television producer, Gary Peter Lefkowitz gave Rally his first big break. He wants Rally to move back to Los Angeles to film a new television series and can't understand why he isn't jumping at the chance.
