Born to Entertain

sm picGranddaughter of Academy Award-winning designer and theatre director Tony Walton, great-granddaughter of renowned producer and film director Mervyn LeRoy, and great-great granddaughter of Harry Warner (co-founder of Warner Brothers Studios), Georgia Warner found herself inescabaly drawn to the family business, and has been acting professionally since she shared her first on-screen kiss with Geoffrey the Giraffe in a “Toys R Us” commercial at the tender age of one.

Sometimes compared to a young Elizabeth Taylor, other times to Tina Fey, Georgia combines classic Old Hollywood strength and sensuality with the shameless goofiness of the modern character actress. Her chameleonic qualities have resulted in an eclectic career ranging from the ingénue to the leading lady to the villain to – her favorite – the “plucky comic relief” in theatre, TV, and film. She has performed alongside such notable actors as Alec Baldwin, Mercedes Ruehl, Harris Yulin, Elisabeth Moss, James Franco, Martha Plimpton, Peter Boyle, Richard Kind, Sutton Foster, and many more.

Georgia has studied a wide variety of acting techniques at a host of schools and studios over the last twenty years, and continues her studies between professional projects whenever possible; she believes strongly in the actor’s obligation to stay sharp and practiced, and is consistently enrolled in classes of one kind or another (but usually improv, because it’s the most fun). In addition to performing, Georgia has worked as a theatre director, acting teacher, film producer, freelance casting director, script consultant, and journalist. She is also a skilled audition coach, working privately with actors whenever possible. More information on her acting coaching can be found at www.NYCActingCoaching.com
