We continue the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series today with Georin Aquila.
Georin played the role of a terrorist in UNWAVERING. Standing at 6′ 3″ tall and a little over 200 lbs, Georin’s muscular stature was a great fit for what I was looking for. He did a phenomenal job and helped to be the enforcer in a couple of situations throughout the film.
Although playing the role as a terrorist, Georin is one of the kindest and sincere actors I’ve worked with. He has been involved with many projects and even plays the role of a businessman in the upcoming Fast & Furious 8 film. You can learn more about Georin and the roles he’s played on his IMDB page
