Ge­orge hard­core from skat­ing days

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SUNDAY EXTRA -

ac­tor Melissa Ge­orge (pic­tured) tests her ac­tion skills as a crack spy in new US TV se­ries Hunted. She says her roller-skat­ing back­ground makes her the per­fect choice for ac­tion roles. The for­mer ju­nior cham­pion is con­vinced she picks up stunts quicker than many of her peers be­cause she trained on skates at an early age. ‘‘I was com­pet­ing from the age of five. When I turned 14, I was sec­ond in ju­nior worlds and I was a hard­core com­peti­tor, morn­ing and night, be­fore and af­ter school,’’ she says.
