Before Max George joined The Wanted, he was just a working actor going out on auditions. In a new episode of E! reality show The Wanted Life, between music-related commitments and a disastrous spray tan, George explains why he wants to return to acting as the boys offer their support (or something like that).
Although George would rather not think about a recent audition — the wait for the callback is excruciating, he says — Jay McGuiness can’t help but bring it up, if only to vouch for his band mate. “If I was a casting director, I would hire Max because he’s talented, he looks the part, and he’s not a dick to work with,” McGuiness said. (Hm.)
Based on a Wanted Life preview, George seems to think that the stakes are high with this particular audition. When he reads to a casting director, he widens his eyes and speaks as if he’s about to break down. And in a show interview, he runs through exactly what he’s visualized for himself, if he gets this part.
“I really really want the part, just for the experience I think,” George says. “As a matter of fact, I get quite a hot girlfriend in it.” Turns out that George wants far more out of life than to just walk like Rihanna (#unapologetic).
