Georgina Cates Undressed
Georgina Cates (born on 14th January 1975 as Clare Woodgate in Colchester, Essex, England) is a British actress.
Cates broke into television acting when she was only sixteen years old playing the role of Jenny in the BBC sitcom ''2point4 Children''. After two series she left the show to concentrate on acting in television drama such as ''Casualty'' and in low budget films.
In 1995 Cates (then still known as Clare Woodgate) auditioned for the role of Stella in the film ''An Awfully Big Adventure'' but unfortunately the casting director thought she was too well known and turned her down. Frustrated by this, Woodgate returned home, dyed her hair red and re-invented herself as a sixteen year old Liverpudlian girl called Georgina Cates who had no previous acting experience. When she re-applied for the same role the casting director was so impressed by the inexperienced scouse girl she immediately hired her. Woodgate kept her real identity secret until half way through filming when she finally confessed to the director and fellow cast members. When news of the audacity of the young actress reached the press she was lauded by the tabloid media but shunned by certain members of the acting community who thought what she did was deceitful and unnecessary. Partly due to the furore she had caused in the acting world she moved to the U.S. to further her career.
In 1997 she married American actor Skeet Ulrich with whom she had twins: a son, Jakob Dylan, and a daughter, Naiia Rose, born on 9 March 2001. The couple separated and it was announced in mid 2005 that the couple have filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
