Who plays Marcus in Ginny & Georgia?
- In Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia, the character of Marcus is played by Felix Mallard.
He is an Australian actor, model and musician who began his acting career playing Ben Kirk on the popular soap opera Neighbours.
The role was only supposed to be brief, as he was actually starring as a guest for three weeks. However, PopSugar notes that he decided to begin acting full-time once he finished high school, later returning to the show as a regular.
He starred in almost 500 episodes up until 2018 when he went on to pursue other acting opportunities. On Instagram, he wrote of his time on Neighbours: “To the wonderful people I’ve had the privilege of working alongside and learning so much from every day, all I can do is thank you,” he wrote. “I couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow up.”
Now, let’s consider Felix’s subsequent roles…
Felix Mallard: Age and previous roles
The 22-year-old actor landed a number of parts after Neighbours and was even encouraged to continue his journey by none other than Harry Styles.
Felix relocated to LA in hopes of landing some more acting work and was offered the role of Cooper James in CBS’s Happy Together starring Damon Wayan Jr.
Harry served as an executive producer on the project, and Cooper James was loosely based on the former One Direction icon. After being offered the part, Felix received a call from Harry:
“This voice says, ‘Hi, it’s Harry.’ I was like, ‘What?’ He just said, ‘I wanted to let you know that I like your stuff and I really hope you come on board’… He was so sweet and courteous and it was wonderful to talk to him. I hung up, turned to my housemates and said, ‘That was Harry Styles.’ They totally freaked out.”
After Happy Together, Felix starred as Lucas Caravaggio in 2020’s Locke & Key, while also appearing in All the Bright Places (Roamer) the very same year; both are Netflix titles.
Additionally, he plays Aiden in Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, a musical comedy-drama series on NBC.
