George hardcore from skating days
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.
