Georgina Channing

Georgina Channing (Caroline Langrishe)

Georgina Channing has earned herself the nickname ‘Ice Maiden’ from her daughter, Charlie, and ex-husband, John Deed. She's come across as ambitious and career-orientated, while lacking maternal instinct. But she does have a softer side.

"George is much more vulnerable than the viewers think she is," actress Caroline Langrishe explains. "George is known as a patriarchal, power crazed woman – but only by John and Charlie when they’re together. When she’s alone with Charlie it’s a different story – the viewers will see that she just wants what’s best for her daughter."

She and John Deed have a stormy relationship. "They still fancy each other really, which is odd considering they are divorced." This caused a few sparks when she introduced her new lover, Secretary of State, Neil Haughton. "I think he was jealous," says Caroline. "They are always critical of each other’s relationships – he doesn’t like her being with Neil; and she is always extremely sarcastic about his relationship with Jo Mills. They couldn’t live together again, though. They're too similar. He tries it on occasionally and he gets a kick out of that in a power kind of way."

Caroline's delighted to be in the series. "It's a well written, well cast, proper grown-up drama. I like the fact that there’s a hard core of regular characters. It’s like going back to a new term at school!"
