Growing up in a house with a famous celebrity, George Sear wanted to follow in his mother’s footsteps and become a performer from a young age. He wanted to be an actor and started training before he was in high school, appearing in plays and showing interest in on-camera performance. He was only 11 years old when he appeared in the play Waiting for Godot, and building from one performance to another, the young actor was on his way to a successful career in show business.
George Sear was born on 14 November 1997, to his parents, father Simon Sear and mother, Juliet Sear. George was raised alongside his two sisters in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. Not just an acting lover, George also carried affection for music and trained himself to play guitar as well as drums. The multi-talented actor even competed at a break dancing championship and came in second.
The young actor grew up watching his mother on TV, which left a big impression on all three Sear’s kids. His love for acting led George to his first on-screen acting role in 2009. The English actor was 12 years old at the time, and with the show, he kick-started his professional acting career. Over a decade later, George has established himself as one of the solid performers currently working on the small screen.
