Mini Bio (1)

Georgina Helen Henley was born to Mike and Helen Henley on July 9, 1995, the youngest of three sisters. When she was young, she joined a local drama group called "Upstagers". It was there that she started her acting career, participating in stage performances such as "Babushka: A Christmas Story" and "The Pied Piper" prior to landing her first role in a film.

When Pippa Hall, casting director for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) came to Georgie's town in search of children to play the four Pevensies, she knew Georgie was perfect for the role of Lucy after only one audition. Finally, after 18 months of auditioning, Georgie was picked from thousands of girls to play Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005), which was her movie debut. She reprised her role in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010). Georgie's promotion of the three Narnia films took her to New York, Orlando, Tokyo, Paris, and lots of other places around the world.

Georgie has finished 6th form this summer at Bradford Grammar School, and will be attending Cambridge University starting fall 2013 to study English. She is no longer a part of her drama club "Upstagers", but hopes to continue her acting career on the big screen, and has also done some theater work at her school. In her free time she enjoys watching films with her friends, and listening to and writing music. She says that if she doesn't keep acting in the future, she'd like to teach, or experiment with music or writing.

Personal Quotes (3)

On working on the movie: "It is quite tiring and it was a bit overwhelming at first, but everyone is doing everything they can to help, so it's cool."
Lucy is quite a lot like me in a way so it was very easy to slip into her character. Lucy's the youngest of the four Pevensies and nobody takes her opinions seriously as the story begins. When she opens this wardrobe, she's in a new world and she feels as though her feelings mean something there. (Narnia production notes)
(on filming 'Dawn Treader', without Popplewell and Moseley) Normally, I'm the most annoying one. So it's going to be a shame for Skandar when Anna or Will aren't around to shut me up.
