Georgina Wilson (born 12 February 1986) is a Filipina-British model, actress, host and VJ.

Early life[edit]

Georgina Ashley Diaz Wilson was born on 12 February 1986 in Texas.[2] Her mother is Filipina while her dad is of British descent.[2] She is the niece of former Miss Universe Gloria Diaz, and the cousin of actress, model and host Isabelle Daza, who is the daughter of Diaz, and former actor Robin da Rosa. She is the eldest among three siblings. She has a younger sister named Jessica who is also a model, and a younger brother named Sam.[citation needed] She moved to Yorkshire, England when she was six months old and remembers a pleasant childhood in the countryside.[2] When Georgina was 11 years old, her family moved to the Philippines.[2]

Education[edit]

Wilson attended High School at Assumption College, Makati, Philippines before starting an Economics (Honors Program) degree at Ateneo de Manila University.[citation needed] After two years she transferred to the University of Sydney, Australia and graduated as a Bachelor of Commerce with a double major in Accounting and Finance.

Career[edit]

Wilson was offered numerous modeling projects since high school. She declined those offers due to the rules of her Catholic high school (Assumption) banning their students from working in modeling, TV and movies. When she graduated, she was cast in a Pond's commercial that aired in mid-2004. After which, she received more modeling and acting offers. Wilson is now the endorser of several products and brands in the Philippines such as Bench, Garnier, Technomarine, Ginebra San Miguel, Argentina Corned Beef, Fila, Belo Sexy Solutions, Cream Silk, American Apparel, Cadbury, Globe Tattoo, BlackBerry, Wade, SM Accessories, Pond's, Kashieca, Jaguar and so much more. Wilson appears in Bench fashion shows every year and has been on several magazine covers. Wilson is also a VJ for Channel V and the host of the current season of Asia's Next Top Model. Recently she has also appeared in American Apparel's new ad campaign in the U.S.
