THE ‘HAMBURGER’ ROLE ($45,000 – $55,000+)

Did you know … the word ‘hamburger’ originates from the town of Hamburg in Germany? The long and short of it goes something like this;

Way back in the 19th-century … German sailors brought back the idea of raw, shredded beef (known today, as beef tartare) … after trading with their counterparts in the Baltic provinces of Russia.

At some point … a local (and unnamed) German chef decided he’d throw in a bit of a ‘twist’ … and he cooked that beef!

And … the ‘hamburger’ was born!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
