Melissa George - Biography

 

Melissa Suzanne George (born 6 August 1976) is an Australian actress who has worked in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States in film and television. She is perhaps best known for her roles in David Lynch's Mulholland Dr., the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror and 30 Days of Night. George was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work on the television series In Treatment in 2008.

George was born in Perth, Western Australia, the daughter of Pamela, a nurse, and Glenn George, a construction worker. The second of four children, George developed an interest in dancing and began studying jazz, tap, ballet, and modern dance at the age of seven. Her enthusiasm for dance eventually evolved into a passion for artistic roller skating. George was an Australian national roller skating champion and won bronze medals in the National Championships in 1989 and 1990. She also won a silver medal at the Junior World Championship in 1991.

George started modeling in her early teens and in 1992 she was named Western Australia's Teenage Model of the Year. At the age of sixteen she was discovered by casting agent Liz Mullinar and got the role of Angel Parrish on the popular Australian soap Home and Away. George left Perth and moved to Sydney to start her acting career. After three years on the show she decided to leave to try find other acting challenges. Melissa was featured nude in Australian Playboy and also in celebrity photo magazine Black + White shortly after leaving Home and Away.
George made a health and fitness video, Mind, Body and Soul (1996), created a sleepwear line named "An Angel at My Bedside" and had a recurring role on the short-lived television series Roar (1997), opposite Heath Ledger, before leaving Australia to move to Los Angeles to try her luck in the US. After moving to Los Angeles, she scored small roles in several films, including Dark City, The Limey, Mulholland Drive and Down with Love. She also starred in several TV pilots that were never aired on television, such as Lost in Oz. She had brief success in 2001 with the cancelled ABC drama-comedy Thieves, co-starring John Stamos. She also starred in the WB hit series Charmed for the sixth season premiere.
George achieved a significant breakthrough in 2003 when she landed the role of Lauren Reed on the ABC series Alias. Also that year, she became Rachel's nanny in the American sitcom Friends.
Her first starring role in a feature film was Kathy Lutz in the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror. The same year, she played Deanna Schine in the thriller Derailed, co-starring Clive Owen and Jennifer Aniston.
2006 was a busy year for George, who filmed three new movies; the drama Music Within, opposite Ron Livingston, the thriller WΔZ, opposite Stellan Skarsgård, and the film adaptation of the graphic novel 30 Days of Night, directed by David Slade and co-starring Josh Hartnett. Also this year, she starred in the horror-thriller Turistas. George made her return to television in 2008 in the HBO half-hour drama In Treatment, co-starring Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Wiest. In 2006, it was announced that George would be the new face and spokesperson for cosmetics company Napoleon Perdis, and the Australian jewelry company Linneys. She has also been appointed as an official ambassador for the 2007 52nd World Artistic Roller Skating Championships.
In September 2008, it was announced that she was joining the cast of Grey's Anatomy for 11 episodes as Sadie Harris, a bisexual intern. In January 2009, it was announced that George was leaving Grey's Anatomy due to a mutual agreement between her and the show's producers.
In September 2009, Melissa said that she would never return to acting on Home And Away and had even forgotten the name of the character she played, but that her three years on Home And Away during the 1990s were a brilliant acting experience.
On November 9, 2009, it was announced that Melissa would guest star in at least two episodes of Fox's Lie to Me as an adversary for Tim Roth's character, TVGuide.com has confirmed. George will play Clara Martin, the sassy younger wife of a murdered billionaire. After being exonerated for the murder, Clara assumes control of her husband's empire. Though she goes toe-to-toe with Lightman (Roth), they bond over their shared eccentricities.

George lives in New York with her husband Chilean film director, Claudio Dabed, who best known for his 2006 film Pretendiendo, and his daughter from a previous relationship, Martina (born 1995). She and Dabed met in Bali in 1998 and married on 22 September 2000. She became a naturalised American citizen in 2008. She now has dual Australian/US citizenship.

 

Melissa George - Personal Quotes

 

"The great thing about film is you start and finish. It's a journey that lasts so long, TV lasts a long time."

The part I enjoy about acting is just having that imagination, taking your mind to a place that you wouldn't normally necessarily go to.

(on her film Sugar & Spice) Huge party, from the day we started until we wrapped in Minneapolis. We'd all go to coffee in the morning and we became best friends. We were so excited to be in an all-girl film. was one big shopping spree. They put us in this hotel across from a shopping mall, and we were often late for work!

No matter what the character is, I just say to myself "If I, Melissa George, was in that situation, how would I react?" and once you do that you can just go for it, and hopefully the performance comes through.
