Diesel La Torraca as Austin Miller

Playing Ginny’s younger brother Austin is 12-year-old Australian-American actor Diesel La Torraca, son of actress Joanne Hunt.

La Torraca might be young, but he’s already very passionate about his acting career and got his start in projects like the 2019 movie Little Monsters starring Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o and the miniseries Lambs of God (for which he was nominated for a Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Award).

Besides Ginny & Georgia, La Torraca is probably most recognizable for his role in NBC’s La Brea as Isaiah, a role that earned him a Young Artist Award nomination. His other projects include The Secrets She Keeps, Sweet Tooth (a short film, not to be confused with the Netflix series), and a voice-acting role for Back to the Outback.

What’s next? 

Next he’ll appear in the film Unsung Hero, which also stars Candace Cameron Bure and Nashville’s Jonathan Jackson. The movie is currently in post-production and slated for a 2024 release.

Felix Mallard as Marcus Baker

Felix Mallard is an Australian actor who portrays Ginny’s on-again-off-again boyfriend Marcus Baker in Ginny & Georgia. Not only does he act, but he also models and he’s a talented musician. The 25-year-old got his start playing Ben Kirk in the Australian soap opera Neighbours, but international fans likely know him best from Ginny & Georgia or Locke & Key.

Fast facts:

  • Birthday: April 20, 1998
  • Age: 25
  • Star sign: Taurus
  • How tall is Felix Mallard? 5 feet 10 inches
  • Felix Mallard’s Instagram: @itsfelixwhat

Where have you seen him before?

Besides his work on Neighbours and playing Ginny’s main love interest, Mallard is probably best known for playing Lucas Caravaggio in Netflix series Locke & Key. He also played Aiden in the NBC series Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Roamer in the 2020 film All the Bright Places.

What’s next?

Mallard was cast as the male lead in the YA film Turtles All the Way Down, based on the John Green novel, but the movie was originally slated to premiere on HBO Max before David Zaslav took over and things started getting shelved.

The newly-dubbed “Max” is less focused on creating original films for streaming, so it’s unclear what is going to happen with this film. The good news is that it hasn’t been written off yet, but it might also never get released. It’s hard to say.

Warner Bros. might opt for a theatrical run or potentially sell it to another streamer. Netflix would be a good home for it as the streamer as they often deal with WB, have worked with Mallard multiple times, and often make teen YA romances based on books.

Sara Waisglass as Maxine “Max” Baker

Sara Waisglass is a Canadian actress who has been acting since she was just seven years old! Her first part was as Jordy Cooper in Overruled, which she starred on for three seasons. Nowadays, she’s the charming, bubbly, and quirky character Max on Ginny & Georgia.

But fans likely know her best from the beloved Canadian series Degrassi: The Next Generation, where she portrayed Frankie Hollingsworth. Funnily enough, Ginny & Georgia features several Degrassi alum, including Raymond Ablack (Joe), Chelsea Clark (Norah), and more.

Ginny & Georgia also marks the second time she’s played part of a pair of twins, as her character on Degrassi also had a twin brother. Throughout her career, she’s been nominated for several awards, including a Vancouver Joey Award and a Young Entertainer Award.

Fast facts:

Scott Porter as Mayor Paul Randolph

American actor Scott Porter was born in Omaha, Nebraska and seems to have found his niche in the world of small-town dramas on television. From playing Jason Street in Friday Night Lights to his character George Tucker in Hart of Dixie and now Mayor Paul Randolph on Ginny & Georgia, I’m just surprised Porter never had a starring role in Gilmore Girls!

Before he became an actor, Porter was actually a wide receiver on his high school football team, which he attended in Florida. He is also a singer.

Fast facts:

  • Birthday: July 14, 1979
  • Age: 44
  • Star sign: Cancer
  • How tall is Scott Porter? 6 feet tall
  • Relationship status: Porter is married to former University of Texas cheerleader Kelsey Mayfield. They met on Friday Night Lights. They have two children together.
  • Scott Porter’s Instagram: @skittishkid

Where have you seen him before?

Porter’s most notable roles so far have been in Hart of Dixie, Friday Night Lights, and Ginny & Georgia, but he also has an extensive voice-acting resume in video games and animated projects.

You might have heard him voicing characters in Harley Quinn (Flash), Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Injustice 2 (Damian Wayne/Robin/Nightwing), God of War Ragnarök (Heimdall), the Marvel’s Avengers game (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), Ultimate Spider-Man (Ben Reilly/Scarlet Spider), Lego DC Super-Villains (Aquaman), and Spider-Man (Harry Osborn).

Some of his other main roles include Orson in Up Here, Carol Corbett in Lucifer, Blake Calamar in The Good Wife, and Rusty Waters in The To-Do List.

What’s next? 

For now, it seems like Porter is just focused on Ginny & Georgia, which is fair since the show did get renewed for at least two more seasons. He also voices Flash in the upcoming Rocksteady video game Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which has been delayed several times now and will finally (supposedly) release in February 2024.

Douglas has guest-starred in several Canadian shows, like Nurses, Mary Kills People, Burden of Truth, Creeped Out, Flashpoint, Saving Hope, and Alphas.

What’s next? 

Her next movie, This Too Shall Pass, is a coming-of-age drama that is currently in post-production. She’s also set to star in the thriller film Lazareth alongside Ashley Judd. As far as we know, Douglas should also be back for more Ginny & Georgia.

Where have you seen her before?

Before landing Ginny & Georgia, Clark’s most notable role was probably from playing Esme Song in Degrassi: Next Class. Her co-stars Sara Waisglass and Raymond Ablack were also part of Degrassi at one point in time.

Apart from her Netflix shows, you might recognize Clark from the horror series EZRA, which she also worked on as a writer, director, and executive producer. Before that, she recurred on Kung Fu as Chloe Soong, and other shows like Tokens, Good Witch, Hudson & Rex, and lent her voice to a role in the animated series Life with Luna!.

What’s next? 

With Ginny & Georgia renewed, that’s likely where we’ll see Clark next, but she also a part in the upcoming film Pins & Needles, which is reportedly in post-production.

Raymond Ablack - Ginny and Georgia season 2

Raymond Ablack as Joe

Canadian actor Raymond Ablack plays the fan-favorite character Joe, who many fans are hoping will someday end up with Georgia, thanks to their sweet friendship and chemistry. He started acting as a child on stage, his first role nabbing Young Simba in The Lion King. But most people know him as Sav Bhandari in Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Throughout the years, Ablack has been consistently appearing in television shows, including Orphan Black and Ginny & Georgia. He also received multiple awards for his work in the short film Inside the Actors Cult and for his work in the web series Teenagers.

Besides Ginny & Georgia and Degrassi, Ablack is probably best known for playing Raj in Orphan Black and Stoddard in the Netflix series Narcos. His other credits include Stay the Night, Love in the Villa, The Broken Hearts Gallery, and The Boyfriends of Christmas Past.

In addition to Narcos and Ginny & Georgia, Ablack has also appeared in the acclaimed Netflix series Maid, as the character Nate, and while not a Netflix Original, he’s in Workin’ Moms, too, which is streaming on the service.

What’s next? 

For now, it doesn’t look like Ablack has any new projects lined up, but we expect him to return for the next two seasons of Ginny & Georgia!
