Georgia King was born on November 18, 1986 in Edinburgh, Scotland. She is the daughter of actor Jonathan Hyde and opera singer Isobel Buchanan. Her acting career started with her appearance as Rosamond Oliver in Jane Eyre. At the time she was eighteen and working in a cheese shop. Her career almost didn’t kick off when her appendix ruptured a week before she was to begin filming. Her agents told the producers that she was unlikely to recover in time, and another actress was cast, but in the end King recovered in time and got medical clearance to film.
