Charlie

CM

Charles is a scientist and a genius, and has pieces of paper that prove both assertions. He has presented video and done V.O. on the intraWebz alongside being a Cheesemint.

Charles has moved house every two years of his life, and has now moved to America: the Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave. He is concerned that he will be found out to be a Cowardly Custard, but he can still talk about himself in the third-person so the USA might let him stay.

Like all the Cheesemints, he has written, acted, produced, scavenged, begged, borrowed, blagged, edited and suffered for their art. He has no regrets, and urges all those who would make films to just do it. You are now a film-maker.

He is a gamer, and although used to keep a Warlock at the level-cap in WoW, he is forming a guild for TESO…he will probably play something dark-magicky, something that summons nefarious minions to do his bidding.
