Performing Arts student George Lawrie appears in film with Jenny Seagrove

Lower sixth student George Lawrie, who’s doing BTECs in Musical Theatre and Acting has recently made his first film appearance in ‘Another Mother’s Son’ which is to be released on 16th March.  See trailer.
 
Lucy Lawrie, George’s mum, explains, “Another Mother’s Son tells the story of my great grandmother, George's great, great grandmother Louisa Gould.  During the occupation in Jersey Louisa took in a Russian Jew on the run called Bill and looked after and hid him for 2 years in her attic.  She had earlier learnt of the loss of her own son (my grandfather) and felt it was her duty to take in 'Another Mother’s Son'.  She was eventually found out and sent to Ravensbruck and very sadly gassed. Her brother Harold who assisted in the care of Bill was the only British man to come out of Belsen alive.”
 
She went on, “Incredibly Bill escaped from the house and survived.  He eventually made it back to Russia and my mum met up with him in 2010 in Jersey, at the same time that Louisa Gould was honoured.  I think he’s now passed away.”
 
“When we learnt that this story was being made into a film, the production company offered George an extra part as they knew he was studying both Drama and Musical Theatre at Reigate College. He spent time with all the cast and appears in several shots including the trailer.  George plays a Jersey resident in the Town Square.  Our family was invited to spend a day on set and we met Jenny Seagrove, John Hannah, Amanda Abingdon, Julian Kostov and Ronan Keating. A lovely treat!”
 
“We’ve been invited to a private screening in London but also hope to be at the premier in Leicester Square on 16th March.  The release is on the Mother’s Day weekend which is very poignant as we lost my mum (George’s beloved granny) just before Christmas.” 
 
George hopes to go to Drama School and study Musical Theatre and/or Drama and continue his chosen route of becoming an actor or singer.
