George was born in New Zealand and commenced acting from a young age.
George was thirteen years old when a family friend encouraged him to audition for a role in the 2005 drama film 50 Ways of Saying Fabulous. He won the role of school bully Arch, and the film marked his first acting job. It also inspired him to pursue acting as a full-time career. In 2011, George flew himself to Auckland to audition for the recurring role of Regan Ames in the New Zealand medical drama Shortland Street. He had a second audition and learned he had secured the part as he was boarding his flight home. He filmed his first scenes in February and made his first appearance as Regan on 15 April 2011. George described his character as “the new bad boy on the block.”
George had a small role in the television film Tangiwai: A Love Story, which dramatises the Tangiwai disaster. He followed this with a supporting role in the 2013 New Zealand crime drama The Blue Rose, alongside Antonia Prebble. That same year, he made a guest appearance in the mystery drama Top of the Lake. He also appeared in the feature film 3 Mile Limit, which tells the story of pirate radio station Radio Hauraki.
George joined the cast of comedy-drama Go Girls in 2012. He attended around five auditions, before he was cast as the show’s narrator, Ted Keegan, for the fifth season, which aired in 2013. When Go Girls was cancelled at the end of the season, he tried to find work in Los Angeles and Sydney. He then relocated to Melbourne, where he worked as a nanny and a labourer. George decided to contact fellow New Zealand actor Danielle Cormack and her agent secured him an audition for a Channel 7 pilot. The show was not picked up, but he was then asked to audition for the role of Martin “Ash” Ashford in the soap opera Home and Away. His character was introduced as a friend of established character Darryl Braxton (Steve Peacocke) in October 2014.
He has reprised his role as Ash in three feature length specials; Home and Away: An Eye for an Eye (2015), Home and Away: Revenge (2016), and Home and Away: All or Nothing (2017). In 2017, George secured his first modelling job with underwear and clothing brand Bonds.
