Vivian Banks

In her 40s, smart, artistic, worldly, warm and sophisticated; yet under the surface, Viv still has elements of a free-spirited, wild child from Philly. She walked away from a promising art career to focus on raising her children, and though she is the glue and the heart of the family, there is always the thought in her mind of what she might have been.
