His interest in music led to his completion of a Bachelor of Music in composition at Wits University with distinction.
In South Africa his theatre work includes The Doowah Boys, and Elton John, I'm Still Standing.
His bridge into singing work came as a complete tangent, and this gives him sufficient reason to giggle about how he makes a living.
His studies at Mountview in musical theatre brought him to the attention of Dave and Sarah at Access Ass, the only agents at the showcase who were willing to offer him representation. Thanks again guys!
George has recently played King Rat at the Elgiva Theatre in David Roden's Dick Whittington, and prior to that made his West End debut with the musical Fame, where he played Joe Vegas at the Victoria Palace, Cambridge and Aldwych Theatres.
He is thrilled to be working again with Adam and co on Saturday Night Fever and looks forward to the bohemian-type year ahead of him.
Film work includes about 58 seconds in Bravo 2-0.
George's main love lies with songwriting and his proudest ever moment came with the presentation of his original musical Tarioni's Tinkerbox in the Downstairs Theatre in Johannesburg.
Much love to Basil and Katherine. Mom and dad, I may seem like a psycho but I love you both dearly.
