To top it all off, George can also bring years of acting experience to your event. George's acting gigs include guest roles on TV shows like Chances and A Country Practice. He also worked in theatre, playing Guildenstern in Neil Armfield's production of Hamlet - where he shared the stage with Richard Roxborough, Geoffrey Rush, David Wenham, Jacqueline McKenzie,and a host of other acting luminaries.
