GEORGE MACKAY (Harry)was born in London in 1992. At age five he staged Peter and
the Wolf, casting his friends in various roles, and himself in the lead role of ‘The Wolf.’ In 2002
George was spotted at his school by an acting scout, who asked the then ten-year-old if he would like
to audition for a role in Peter Pan. He attended a workshop, quickly landing the part of one of the Lost
Boys, Curly, in what was to be his big break. Soon after, he had small roles in an episode of Rose and
Maloney and television drama Footprints in the Snow.
In 2005 aged thirteen, MacKay won the role of Riccio in The Thief Lord, the film adaptation
of Cornelia Funke's best selling children's novel. Later in the same year, he also was cast in the lead
role of Johnny and the Bomb, a BBC drama adapted from Terry Pratchett's novel of the same name.
He was most recently seen starring with Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber in Edward Zwick’s true
story of Jewish resistance to the Nazis, Defiance.
