About the character: Dean Lowrey


STRENGTH: Industrious - Professional, responsible…and just as hard working in the charm department.

WEAKNESS: Pride - Classic ailment of the 1960’s man: the unwillingness and inability to admit to hurt feelings.

Dean: captain of the Clipper Majestic; the youngest in the Pan Am fleet. While in flight he’s steadfast, confident, in control; but on the ground—in his personal life—not so much. Dean’s a rare breed: charming, sometimes drawn to the danger of romance; but also a believer in the power and redemption of true love.
