Based in Los Angeles and splitting his time between China and the US, George is one of few accomplished Mandarin-speaking Caucasian actors, having over 20 credits in Chinese TV and film, many of which are starring roles. His starring role in Hunan TV's biopic about American journalist Edgar Snow, "Red Star over China," was the largest role ever for a non-Asian actor on Chinese TV, and it was one of only two times that a Caucasian actor in a starring TV role and speaking Mandarin was not dubbed.
George grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, the son of a Cuban-American mother and West Point graduate father. Before beginning his acting career, he lived and traveled in India and China after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Religious Studies in 2006.
A self-taught Chinese student, he has moved back and forth between the US and China since 2007. In 2009, he began studying acting in training centers in Chicago while working steadily in independent films and plays. In 2014, he began working full-time in prime-time Chinese TV shows and films.
