I’ve just found Jimmy Minor’s description from the casting agency:
JIMMY MINOR (Male, 22 - 26)
Energetic and dashing young reporter who works with the Evening Press. A friend of APRIL’s and PHOEBE’s. Very fond of PHOEBE; perhaps he has a crush on her. We see him in his working environment. He is very much a part of the city and described by QUIRKE as a man of the world. He can be quite tactless. He knows a lot more about April’s life that he reveals to QUIRKE. Smoker. Recurring character in this book.
