Let Me Know What I'm Looking At

The agent, manager or producer reading your script must know what your characters look like. 
Don't just say, “Amanda enters.” Is she 16, 54, 87? Is she hot, anorexic or 300 pounds? Try this: AMANDA JONES, 23, enters. Girl next door, athletic, shy.  
Or RICK SMITH, 30, enters. A muscle-bound, arrogant, pretty boy. Don’t do this for incidental characters, but make sure you do it for all your major parts. 
And always give them a last name.
