Georgie Henley

Georgie Henley returns for her third adventure in C.S. Lewis' wondrous fantasy world, after making her professional acting debut in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and reprising her role of Lucy in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. The 15-year-old from Ilkley, W. Yorkshire, in the north of England, was a member of a local drama club called Upstagers, where she was discovered by casting director Pippa Hall in a countrywide casting call for the film. Georgie won the role over 2,000 other hopefuls.

For her work in the first Narnia film, Georgie collected numerous awards and nominations from organizations around the world, including the Phoenix Film Critics Award (Best Performance by a Youth in a Support or Lead Role, Female), the Michael Eliot Trust Award (Child Star of the Year), the Total Film Award (the Dakota Fanning prize for Best Child Actor) and the Young Artists Award (Best Performance/Feature Film -- ages ten and under).

Additionally, Georgie earned nominations as Best Young Actress from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, as Most Promising Newcomer for the United Kingdom's Empire Awards, as Best Breakthrough Performance from the Online Film Critics Society, and as Best Newcomer from the Chicago Film Critics circle.

Following the release of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Georgie won the UK Nickelodean Kids Choice Award 2008 for Favourite Female Film Star.

Georgie also played the young Jane Eyre in last year's BBC production of Jane Eyre.
