We've collected a list of cast members who appear in the program below.
Emma Pasarow As Auden (Age:24)
Emma Pasarow, a relative newcomer, plays Auden. Pasarow debuted on IMDb in 2012 as "Tween Girl" in an episode of the short-lived series Touch, but she is only now breaking out. A shy teenager at Colby Beach for her final summer before college. She spends her nights exploring the alleys after everyone else has gone to sleep, but her world is twisted when she meets Eli, a mysterious insomniac.
During summer, Auden is looking forward to having some of the teen fun she missed out on in high school when she visits her father and stepmother. However, after she mistakenly alienates the other teenage females at Colby, she spends time with a fellow outcast Eli, who makes it his purpose to provide her with all of her childhood experiences by completing a huge list of "quests."
Belmont Cameli As Eli (Age:24)
Belmont is primarily known for portraying Jamie Spano in both seasons of Peacock's Saved by the Bell remake series. In the series, Eli, like Auden, is an outcast.

He now works at a local bike shop and spends his nights alone until he meets Auden, with the two quickly bonding as they engage in different nightly experiences.

Auden is willing to assist, but she can only stand by and watch her father abandon Heidi to care for their kid for so long.
Laura Kariuki As Maggie (Age: 23)
