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
Here are the questions we asked Georin:
Georin: Being in the warehouse with the smoke, the low light and seeing everyone get into character and making it feel like a real hostage situation.
MPF: What’s your favorite role you’ve ever played?
Georin: Playing a Pittsburgh Steeler in the 2008 Superbowl commercial. When I put on that uniform and ran across that field it was if I was a real member of the team. It was a cool moment in my acting career.

Georin: Morgan Freeman, Al Pacino, Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender, Sigourney Weaver
MPF: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
