Here’s everything you need to know about the cast and characters of Ginny & Georgia.

Brianne Howey as Georgia Miller

Brianne is known for her role as Reagan on Batwoman and Shauna Babcock in The Passage.

Antonia Gentry as Ginny Miller

“Ginny is just like any 15-year-old teenage girl who is really trying to figure things out. She’s trying to figure out her identity and is also exploring her sexuality. She’s really smart, but introverted and shy. Coming into a new town, she’s not used to having friends, so when she suddenly has friends, you see her kind of coming out of her shell and desperately trying to keep it all together. She’s suspicious of her mom. But in trying to find out these secrets, she bites off a little more than she can chew,” Antonia told Seventeen.

Antonia previously appeared as Jasmine in Candy Jar and Wendy in Raising Don.

“Marcus is a bit of an outsider. He’s an introvert and, like a lot of young men, struggling with a lot of feelings that he doesn’t quite know how to handle. As a result, it sort of turns into some untoward behavior and a lot of anger. He is a sort of person who has a lot of masks around. A lot of young guys put up as many masks so they can to try to keep people about at arm’s length as much as they can. Through the series and through getting to know Ginny, the audience can kind of see those masks break down,” Felix told Seventeen.

Felix might be familiar thanks to his numerous roles over the past year. Other than Ginny & Georgia, he recently appeared in Locke & Key as Lucas and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist as Aiden.
