George Christopher (born George Wilson, 5 March 1970) is a British actor.

He is best known for his teenage role as Liverpudlian scamp Ziggy Greaves in Grange Hill, a role he played from 1986 to 1989. The character was a hit with viewers, and Wilson himself has compared his alter-ego with the series' original hero, Tucker Jenkins.[1]

After Grange Hill, Wilson took on another high-profile role in the Channel 4 soap Brookside, as Little Jimmy Corkhill. He played the drug addict son of Jimmy Corkhill senior.

George has since taken on a variety of stage and film roles, and describes a play about the Hillsborough tragedy as one of the hardest things he's ever had to do. He lives in Liverpool with his young son.
