1. Sega St Georges (Australia)
Sega St Georges hails from a Lebanese background. He moved to study Communication Arts in Beirut when he was 20 and he majored in Directing/Writing. When he finished his studies he wanted to strengthen his acting ability so he traveled to Los Angeles where he took part in a workshop which took him to both Stella Adler and Sanford Meisner centre where he was given monologue training. That’s when he realized he had a passion for acting so when he returned to Australia he immediately got involved with SA casting where he did another short course which led him to playing a role in Russel Crowe’s “Water Diviner” and “Emu Plains/The Jim Loach Movie” which was directed by Jim Loach. Since then he has also acted in a short movie called “Beneath the Shellings” for an Australian Lebanese director Wayne Nassredine – he played the leading Arabic-Speaking role and the film talks about the wars happening in the Middle East. Since then he was called back to Beirut to take a leading role in the Middle East’s first major horror movie called “Maskoun” meaning the haunted. The movie was shot in both English & Arabic and is set for International release in 2015.

In terms of his professional work, he had to grind his way up to where he is now starting with extras work, but he luckily made friends in higher places and landed some roles on popular TV shows. To date he has had roles on “Puberty Blues (Season 2)”, “Underbelly Badness”, and “The Great Gatsby”. He also has his first full feature film coming out this year called “No.46” which is heading to a couple of Australian horror festivals.
4. Dean Mayer (Australia)
Dean started his acting career at the age of 5, performing at events and drama classes. He continued all the way through his early teens being involved with the Australian Acting Academy and Gold Coast Little Theatre’s Youth program. Coming back to acting in his early 20’s after taking a hiatus playing music and travelling, he has been full throttle ever since. Acting in some 30 odd short films, 10 plus plays (winning Best Actor for his dual role playing twin brothers in the play CORPSE!), to doing voice overs, corporate videos and then getting the lead role in a indie feature film ‘Status Quo’, all within the last 4 years shows his commitment, dedication and love for acting. He has been involved in front and behind the camera with many different roles to writing and filming his own short series called “Dynamic Pizza” and now writing a feature film. He constantly does classes, reads books and keeps up with the acting industry to consistently raise the quality of his work. Acting is thoroughly flowing through his blood.
