Lonelygirl15 Makes It On Answers.com

September 15, 2006

lonelygirl15 (also known as Bree), is a fictional character who plays a controversial user at the popular video hosting website YouTube. The vlogs have elicited mass popularity and were originally thought to be non-fictional.

The actress who plays the role is New Zealander Jessica Lee Rose[1], born April 26, 1987.

The series was created by Ramesh Flinders, a screenwriter and filmmaker from Marin County, Calif., and Miles Beckett, a doctor-turned-filmmaker[2].

A film starring the same actress is available at YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpQL4Wspdtg

Theme and plot

As the “vlogs” (or video blogs) have aired, a story arc has emerged which — according to at least one critic — is almost Shakespearean in its nature.[3] The treatment of the following themes, and the nature of the dialogue strongly suggests scripting to many users.

The central themes of their video blogs are:

  • Unrequited love / romantic confusion – Bree is unsure of how to react when Daniel confesses that he ‘likes her’
  • Rebellion against Parenting – Bree is homeschooled by parents who she implies are also strictly religious.
  • Forbidden experimentation – her parents are apparently unaware of her video blogs.
