Early life and education
When she was just five, she had a dream of becoming an air hostess, but that never worked out. Georgina attended and graduated from Royal Holloway University of London in 2014, with a degree in film studies, and plans to do a masters in the future.
She started acting in a rather unusual way – she was approached by film director Sarah Walker on the street, who asked her if she was an actress. After saying no, she was told about an audition which she then attended, and got herself her first role.
Georgina’s career started with her lead role of Lucy in the online drama “Freak”, shot in 2009. She had numerous minor roles in TV series after that, until in 2014 she got the role of Ashley Jones in “Murdered by My Boyfriend”, which brought her to notice; it’s her favorite role because she saw Ashley as a real person with real family and friends. People had big expectations of her in this role and she didn’t disappoint them. She explains how the movie is heartbreaking and life-changing and how it impacted her so much. Her performance won her a BAFTA award.
After 2014, Georgina appeared again in a number of TV series but only for an episode or two. Some of her noticeable appearances were in the “Tripped” Mini Series in 2015 in which she had a main role, the “Flowers” TV series in which she appeared in six episodes, and eight episodes of “Broadchurch”, in the role of detective Constable Katie Harford.
Her most important appearance in films was in “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” in 2017 – even though it was only a small role, it helped Georgina to be seen, as the movie was a big success, described by her as the most epic film that she has ever done. It was filmed in the same studio as “Harry Potter”, and she met some of her favorite actors – Jude Law and Charlie Hunnam. It collected $150 million at the box office, and has an IMDb rating of 6.8/10.
Georgina has never said openly that Tom Freight, a music maker, is her boyfriend, but she often posts pictures of them together on different occasions, which started rumors that they were dating. On 22 September 2017, the two of them spent the Christmas holidays together in Central Park, New York.
Georgina has never married, and doesn’t have any kids.
