44 Questions with Actress Georgina Seville-Hunt

“There’s no limit to anything, there’s no limit to ambition.”

I first met Georgina Seville-Hunt at the read through for “Glorious!”; the play we were in earlier this year. She was playing Maria, the Mexican maid and she’d been cast perfectly; her Spanish was impeccable and her interpretation of the character hilarious, come performance night, the audience loved her.

At 21, Georgie is one of the most self-assured, awesome, no-nonsense people I’ve ever met. I have a huge amount of admiration and respect for her. When she told me she’d just finished a foundation year at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) it didn’t surprise me; she displays everything I’d expect from a LAMDA student; talent, focus and well, balls. 

We pretty much hit it off straight away, quickly realising we had a lot in common. For the duration of the performances, Georgina and I could be found: in the dressing room belting out some S Club 7 (mildly irritating our fellow cast members), on the stage prior to the show exhibiting some rather unique dance moves, or backstage looking for edible props (such as Madeira cake, which we happily gobbled up on the final night).

One very special cast member actually said we reminded her of Jedward, the annoying Irish identical singing twins – which we somehow took as a compliment of our friendship- and which later gave rise to the name:

ANG-INA. (Angie + Georgina...pronounced like the chest pain).

Georgina currently teaches Latin and Ballroom dancing part-time and acts in plays and short films.
