There is no lack of self-esteem and her confidence comes from self-validation.
She plays the role of big sister and therapist among the roommates because she has a keen ability to read people and gives good personal advice. In her own words, "I'm not a perfectionist. I'm a keep it real-zist". She eventually questions whether or not she wants to be a lawyer.
Tina WongLu as LYNN THIEU
Lynn aka "The Bitch Next Door", is a smart-mouthed hot head with a short fuse!

She is a senior pursuing a B.A. in Early Childhood Education hoping to one day become an elementary school teacher. She struggles to support herself financially, pay for school, and maintain multiple part-time jobs.
Because of her petite and doll-like appearance, people tend to initially perceive Lynn to be innocent, dainty and fragile, but her sharp tongue tells you otherwise. She claims to hate people who are shallow and materialistic. In most situations where her emotions might get the best of her, Casey is the one that helps keep her cool.
Mariana Flores as NANCY LOPEZ
Nancy is half-Filipino half-Mexican from Portland, Oregon in her 1st year of graduate film school. She is the oldest child of a normal middle class nuclear family having one brother and one sister. Before NYU, she received a B.A. in English and Psychology at a university near her hometown.
She is smart and witty, but comes across as the virtuous quiet one.

Moving to New York City is the first time she is fully living on her own with no safety net. She is also a virgin.

Roger is a lazy, unmotivated, biracial Afro-Iranian skater and pothead from Malibu, CA, where his parents work in the entertainment industry. An only child that grew up with a lot of money.
He is a junior in college studying historical journalism, but misses most of his classes because he is usually off somewhere getting high with his best friend Nathan.

An only child of wealthy divorced parents, with the possibility of an older step-sibling here and there. He is a sophomore majoring in fashion design and marketing, and aspires to be the next Oscar de la Renta. He knows exactly what he wants and does not hesitate to go after it, but sometimes his approach is not the best.
Very talented, charming, confident, and the most immature of the strangers. He spends most of his downtime partying, chasing girls, or working on his design portfolio. He is constantly mistaken to be gay, but is definitely straight. His mannerisms and appearance defy gender normative standards.
Brittany Rosoff as Tiffany "Tif" Jay
Tiffany Jay, but everyone calls her Tif. She is one of Roger's closet friends and confidants in NY who also grew up in Southern California not too far from Roger. Tif and Roger met in NY through mutual friends during their sophomore year and discovered they were both from SoCal.

Scott Murphy as Simon, The Creepy Super
Simon, is the apartment building manager where Casey, Lynn, Nancy, Roger, and Nick live. He is Irish and new to America.

He doesn’t like Roger and never remembers Nick for some reason. His very unprofessional actions don't get noticed, even though tenants complain about him on multiple occasions.
