Mini Bio (1)

Georgia May King (born 18 November 1986) is an English actress. King is the daughter of actor Jonathan Hyde and opera singer Isobel Buchanan.

Although King grew up dreaming of being a director, she got her break into acting when she was eighteen and still working at a cheese shop, making her professional debut as Rosamond Oliver in Jane Eyre. She was nearly unable to play the role, however. A source stated that "a week before the day she began filming, King felt stomach pains, then had her appendix rupture. Her agent told the producers that she was unlikely to recover from the operation to remove it for at least ten days." Another actress was cast, but King recovered in time and was able to get the required medical clearance to film.

She is best known as Goldie, a surrogate mother in the American sitcom, The New Normal. Formerly, she was well known for her acclaimed performance as the tyrannical head-girl Harriet Bentley in 2008's Wild Child, and as cruel, conniving Sophie in the 2009 slasher film Tormented. Also in 2009 King received positive acclaim for her performance as the manipulative Victoria in the film Tanner Hall. She also performed in One Night in November at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry, from October to November 2010, as well as being featured in the 2011 film Chalet Girl. She appeared as Princess Elena in the episode "The Changeling" of the third series of the BBC's Merlin. She appeared in the comedy horror film Cockneys vs Zombies as a bank robbery hostage trying to escape from a zombie-infested London.

King also appeared as series regular Amanda Snodgrass across both seasons in the 2016/2017 HBO comedy Vice Principals.

Personal Quotes (13)

Skydiving is special because it's almost the closest to an out-of-body experience you can have. We live in such a stimulated, connected, busy world - to be up in the air with nothing but yourself and the landscape is incredibly peaceful.
I pretended to be super-cool and not be bothered by things and play off any kind of heartache when I was younger, for sure.
I've already bungee jumped, so I am thinking about diving with sharks. I watched a little snippet of 'Jaws 2,' and I was like, 'Nope! I'll save it for a rainy day.' Unfortunately, I live in England, and it's always raining.
My dad discouraged me and my older sister watching too much TV. I don't want to portray them as crazy hippies, but I definitely feel like I was influenced by their creativity. But did I want to have an acting career myself? I didn't think so. I think my goal really was to direct. I really wanted to make stories in that capacity.
We're often blinded by romance; we decide to not see things we don't want to see, and put up with behavior that we shouldn't put up with.
I'm a massive sports fan and have a lot of energy, so I'm always running around doing crazy amounts of exercise.
I grew up on Jane Austen novels and was a massive literature fanatic when I was a kid - I read everything I could get my hands on.

Fame is a weird thing. I think maybe I learned to never get too big for your boots. Keep your feet on the ground and keep your head down and work hard - that's probably what I learned from my parents more than anything. Remain generous and kind, and have humility.
My dad was in these pretty big films that were relevant to my age group. I remember him doing 'Richie Rich' when I was eight-years-old, and then 'Jumanji.' I remember going to these sets, and I loved being on film sets. I just found it fascinating watching how stories were made.
When I say that I'm a grade-A student in motocross, I mean that I can sit on a bike and ride it. But I'm confident that, with time, I could do a 12 o'clock.
I do, I love to mock stuff. I am a British person.
I grew up in the countryside, in literally the middle of nowhere. We had one neighbor and a lot of sheep.
