Biography

Born in Goulburn, Australia in 1939, George Lazenby’s peripatetic life led him to London and international stardom as Ian Fleming’s James Bond in ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE (1969) taking over from Sean Connery. Although a worldwide critical and financial success, George forsook the role of 007 to carve out his own spiritual adventure in life in the Far East and the United States working with filmmakers as varied as Peter Bogdanovitch, Cy Endfield, John Landis and and Raymond Chow. George was also supposed to work with Bruce Lee but sadly that never happened due to Lee’s sudden death.

Still much in demand on TV and film, Lazenby starred as Civil War General J Johnson Pettigrew in GETTYSBURG (1993) and in Superboy (2000) as Superman’s father, Jor-El, a role initially essayed by Marlon Brando.

Recent work includes a voice role the in DC Batman animated series, Jim Jefferies’ father in LEGIT (2014) and in critically acclaimed independent films such as A WINTER ROSE (2016) directed by Riz Story and DEATH GAME (2017) directed by Gregory Hatanaka.

George is based in Los Angeles and represented worldwide by Anders Frejdh.
