For the beginning of Georgina's acting career, we have to go back
to 1988, when as an eight year old girl she made her first appearance
in the musical theatre troupe 'Harlekijn' in The Hague. Until
her twelfth birthday she fulfilled her childhood dream by performing
in many children's musicals, and it soon became evident that her
talent and perseverance could create a surprise. She wanted to
be an actress.
After playing several small parts she made her breakthrough with
the part of 'Hedwig Harmsen' in the Netherlands' most popular
soap opera, 'Goede Tijden Slechte Tijden' on RTL 4. In the three
years that Georgina was 'Hedwig' in GTST she became extremely
popular in the Netherlands. The Academy Award nomination in 1998
in the category 'Best Actress Soap' was a welcome surprise for
her and an acknowledgement of her accomplishments as an actress.
In the spring of 2000 Georgina decided to leave the soap to concentrate
on her development as an actress. In 1999 Georgina played the
part of 'Dash' in the VPRO TV/ arthouse movie 'ENIGMA', directed
by Paul Ruven.

Boisterous Brit Brian Blessed is known for his hearty, king-sized
portrayals on film and TV. A giant of a man accompanied by an
eloquent wit and booming, operatic voice. He came to fame as PC
'Fancy' Smith in the BBC TV police drama series Z Cars and often
plays powerful, bushy bearded men in Shakespearean and medieval
dramas, and also many humorous roles.
Blessed is generally recognised as a Shakespearean actor, as well
as an immensely entertaining and often satirised comic figure,
mainly because of his instantly recognisable voice. His role in
Blackadder was a parody of the "typical" Shakespearean
actor rather than reflecting the qualities of Blessed's own Shakespearean
skills. Other roles that have emphasized his comedic abilities
were those of Prince Vultan in Flash Gordon (1980) and Spiro in
the BBC adaptation of My Family and Other Animals (1997).
Blessed stole the show as Long John Silver in the 1985 miniseries
Return to Treasure Island. His Shakespearean skills took center
stage for Kenneth Branagh's Henry V (1989), Much A do About Nothing
(1993), and Hamlet (1996), and, in 1999, Blessed directed himself
in a U.K. version of King Lear. That same year, he gained even
more international exposure when he essayed a small role in Star
Wars: Episode 1 -- The Phantom Menace and provided vocal work
for Disney's Tarzan. After taking the lead in the 2003 horror
film Devil's Harvest, Blessed once again travelled back in time
for a role in Oliver Stone's Alexander (2004). In Kika and Bob, Brian Blessed plays the role of Bob.
