Access All Areas

We have the most exciting news ever; Georgie has landed a new film role!

Accourding to Screen Daily and Vulture Hound Magazine, Georgie is set to star in a upcoming film called Access All Areas, directed by Bryn Higgins, and she will be playing a character named Nat – a close friend to the main characters, played by British actors Ella Purnell and Edward Bluemel (also represented by Hamilton Hodell). Thanks to Vulture Hound, we even have a synopsis what the movie is about!
Heath (Edward Bluemel) is a young man trying to keep it together.  Shackled by his wildly unpredictable mum, he can see no way out of his dead-end urban rut.  Mia’s (Ella Purnell) home is a war zone, so she does what all teenagers do in that situation: she parties every night and refuses to come home.  But something has to give, and music is their only escape.  When Mia steal’s Heath’s moped, it catapults them along with their best mates, Leon (Jordan Stephens) and Nat (Georgie Henley), on a road trip out of the city and across the water to a magical music festival that will change their lives.  Assuming, that is, they can get hold of some tickets and they make it to Sunday night alive.
Isn't this exciting! Filming has already started at the Bestival (a popular music festival in the UK) and after it will move to Bristol for five weeks of shooting. You who follow Georgie's upcoming project TIDE on twitter will know that she tweeted a few days ago that she would be at Bestival. Well now we know it was for more than just a fun time! Stay tuned for more news and hopefully photos!

Also, don't forget that TIDE's Kickstarter is still up and they still need donations before they reach their goal. So if you're able, and you want to help support Georgie, please donate to their Kickstarter (they have some awesome rewards for those who do), any amount will help!

TIDE - Kickstarter campaign

A few months after completing filming, TIDE is now in post-production and today they started their Kickstarter campaign. For you who are not familiar with Kickstarter, it's a fundraiser platform for film makers, where they ask for the general public for help with raising money for their various projects. Some of might remember that Georgie's latest movie, The Sisterhood of Night, was funded through Kickstarter.

Georgie posted a video on TIDE's official twitter account (check it out below), thanking fans for helping the account reaching 400 followers, and then went on to reveal a small surprise, which turned out to be the launching of their Kickstarter.

TIDE's goal is to reach £3000, and they have 35 days to do so starting today. If they do not reach their goal before the time is up they get nothing, so it's crucial that those who can and want makes sure to send in your contribution before the time is up. And don't forget that there are lots of rewards for those who do, everything from a signed note from the cast and crew, to actually being credited as a Executive Producer!

If you wish to donate money to TIDE, you can do so here (any amount will help). Let's help make Georgie's five year old dream come true!

Tide - a short film by Georgie Henley

Georgie has a new project going on, but this time, instead of being in front of the camera, she will be behind it.

Georgie is set to direct Tide, a short film exploring love, loss and companionship. As if directing it wasn't enough, she also wrote the script for this story and we are excited to see what is to come of it. By her side, as both cast and crew, she has several of her fellow Cambridge students, many of whom she has been working with before in various theatre productions at Cambridge. We wish them all good luck with the upcoming filming and editing!

Fans can follow the development of the project on their Twitter, Facebook, and through their very own website. I would like to remind people to not spam any of these account with various questions to Georgie. It's not 100% that she is the sole administrator of any of the accounts, and even so, people should stick to questions about the project rather than anything else. Remember to be respectful!

Once again we wish Georgie and the rest good luck, and we look froward to see the development of this exciting short film!

Birthday Project 2015

It's once again that time of the year, the time to start our Birthday Project for Georgie!

Our past projects have been highly successful, and we hope that this year will be no different, even if we come off to a late start. Due to this, this year's project won't be anything too extravagant, we are simply going to revisit the idea of our first ever Birthday Project and make a scrapbook filled with fans' birthday wishes to Georgie. I'm sorry to say to those who wished to make graphics or send of photo of themselves with a birthday greeting, sadly this year, again due to lack of time and a printer, that won't be possible. This time we can only settle for short letters and birthday wishes. The scrapbook will then be packed up and sent to her agency in London, and we hope they then deliver it just in time for her birthday.

Here below are the requirements/guidelines for your birthday messages:
  • The letter must be in English.
  • It may not be longer than 150 words.
  • You must sign it with a name, username, or other alias.
  • Keep your message positive (obviously, since it's a birthday message).
  • It must be a written message – no photos. 
All and all, it's pretty simple. You just write her a nice message which you then send to us in one of these four ways:
  • You can send it to our email
  • You can tweet us the message (remember Twitter only lets you use 140 characters (not words)
  • You can send it to us through Facebook
  • Or simply leave it in a comment below
 Please state clearly that your message is meant to be included in our project when sending them to either one of these options, and please send in your submissions before June 25!
Also please share this amongst your friends if you know they, like the rest of us, are a fan of Georgie! We really hope we can get a lot of submissions for this project because there's not much point to it if we only get 10 letters or something like that. So share it! And we look forward to see what you come up with.

Sisterhood photoshoot

About two weeks ago, Georgie's The Sisterhood of Night co-star Kara Hayward shared a photo on her Instagram page from a photoshoot Georgie and the rest of the Sisterhood girls did back in New York before the premiere. Two more photos from the shoot have now been released via the official site of Willa Cuthrell, who plays Catherine in Sisterhood.

The photoshoot features Georgie together with her co-stars Kara Hayward, Willa Cuthrell, and Sisterhood's on-set photographer Olivia Bee (who also had a role in the film), and they were photographed by the Sisterhood director Caryn Waechter, who is also a very talented photographer, as you can see. Obviously they all look absolutely gorgeous, and hopefully we'll get a lot more photos from this shoot!

Three photos have been added to our gallery so check them out!

The Sisterhood of Night takes NYC

New York, tell us your secrets!

Yesterday (April 2) Georgie stepped out in New York City for the premiere of her new film The Sisterhood of Night. Joining her on the red carpet were most of her co-stars, as well as a few crew members. The premiere was held at the SVA Theatre at 7pm, and then continued with an after party with lots of music and a photobooth at The Park – a restaurant in Chelsea, New York.

We are now just 7 days away from the release of Sisterhood, and American fans can pre-order the film on iTunes or Amazon Instant Video. The film will be released on the US Netflix in June. Still no word on a worldwide release.

Photos from the event (plus a few newly added photos) can be found in our gallery.
