Georgia Groome made her big-screen debut aged 14 in Paul Andrew Williams' festival hit London To Brighton, in which she played a young homeless girl. She is about to prove her versatility as an actor in Gurinder Chadha's comedy Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging which opens at the end of the month in the UK and which also stars Aaron Johnson. 'I wanted to try something different,' says Groome, who plays a typical teenager grappling with typical teenage issues. 'That's what Paul [Andrew Williams] advised me to do. Acting is about testing yourself.' No wonder casting directors are praising this 16-year-old's commitment, appeal and formidable talent. Groome will soon be seen in Johnny Kevorkian's supernatural horror The Disappeared.
