I'm pretty sure I know what the consensus will be on this (and it means another re-write), but can all you helpful folks answer me this?
One of my screenplays introduces a character at the end of Act 1 who is the protagonist, travelling from the future to help herself. Her identity is hidden from the protagonist and the viewer (hiding in shadows, wearing hoodies, that sort of thing). I don't identify her until the beginning of Act 3, instead calling her "Woman".
But since the movie viewer won't know who she is until Act 3, and it's unlikely the movie viewer will read the screenplay, I should just identify her as "Future Detective Collins", or something along those lines, right?
