George Eads is a very recognizable American actor who became famous as one of the cast crew of CSI series. After leaving CSI he has continued his work in another, also very popular TV series called MacGyver.
He was born as George Coleman Eads III on March 1, 1967, in the town named Forth Worth, which is one of the largest cities located in the state of Texas, in the United States. He always talks about his hometown in the most passionate way possible. He says that growing up there was a joy.
George was born into a loving family which lived in a town named Beton, also in Texas.
His father was Arthur Coleman Eads known by his nickname „Cappy“ who was working as a district attorney in town and was very successful at his work.
His mother’s name was Vivian. He has a great connection to her and says that he can owe most of his success to her.
George has one sister and her name is Angela Eads, married Tekell. His mum worked in education, as Superintendent of Schools.
He was a good pupil at school and eventually finished Belton High School where he graduated from in 1985. He said that high school was fun and that he enjoyed the extracurricular activities a lot. He wishes he was a bit more active in science classes as well!
After finishing high school he has decided to enroll college so he eventually entered the Texas Tech University and became the graduate of class 1990.
The degree he received after finishing this college was the degree in Mass communication. He enjoyed college a lot and said that he made great friends there.
He was always interested in acting but until finishing college he never considered it to become his main career and his main source of income.
Studying this course helped him in his acting career because he became more confident and it was easier for him to get involved in acting.
George was also very handsome so the camera liked him very much. He also gained a degree in Marketing at the same university.
During his time in college, he joined the fraternity named Phi Delta Theta.
Before he decided to pursue his acting career he worked on a very simple workplace, as the salesman of copy machines. He said that he was nowhere near happy with this job, but he had to do what he had to do to keep his financial stability.
He also worked as First Aid seller but he never really found himself working in sales and he was not satisfied by the direction his life took.
After his father and mother got separated he stayed living with his mum. She eventually found herself a new partner named Dudley Baker with whom George had a very correct relationship.
George finally decided to move to Los Angeles to find work in the acting branch. He stated many times that he loved LA, but he didn’t want to spend so much time finding himself because most of his opportunities were gone by then. He had to act quick.
His stepfather Dudley borrowed him his car and he took himself to the big city.
He eventually succeeded in his intentions and made his breakthrough by entering a popular soap opera called Savannah. This brought him quite a lot of success and he said that most of the things he did there were not so big, but very exciting for him at the time.
It ran through 1996 and 1997 and was produced by a very known producer Aaron Spelling.
The breakthrough was very fast and interesting: George starred in the pilot episode and died very soon in it but the viewers liked him so much that the producers decided to return him to the series where he began starring as his identical twin brother.
In 1997, he has appeared in a few episodes of a very popular TV series called „ER“ which had a big fanbase because it was popular for its medical thematics.
He appeared as a character in a TV movie called „Crowned and Dangerous“ which was filmed after a true story. He also appeared in „The Ultimate Lie“ in 1996.
In 2000 he started acting in the role of Nick Stokes, one of the lead characters in an extremely popular police series called „CSI: Crime Scene Investigation“ in its Las Vegas version.
His character Nick Stokes was a forensic scientist who became very popular soon. He had stayed in the series for 14 years, until 2014. It was a hell of a ride, he says, and he claims that he had met his best friends in the world here. He still tries to see them every once in a while.
This role brought attention to him and gained him the recognition he wanted.
In 2004 he was fired from his hit TV series because he didn’t come to work on purpose, trying to make the producers up his salary.
By this time he earned $100 k per episode so the producers declined it and fired him. George apologized to them and was returned to the cast.
During the time he played the role of Nick in CSI he also found time for other ventures. In 2003 he played a role in „Monte Walsh“ and one year later he starred in „Evel Knievel“.
He argued with the show’s producers yet again in the summer of 2013 when he took a leave of absence from the show.
He finally left it in the final season and didn’t play a part in its final series called „Immortality“.
He continued working on the small screen, by gaining the role of Jack Dalton in a TV series called „Mac Gvyer“ in 2016. He was well recognized in the movie by many fans.
He stayed in the show for two seasons but was released from it on his demand because he needed personal time.
He wanted to spend enough time with his daughter named Dylan Eads but it was difficult for him since „Mac Gvyer“ was filmed in Atlanta and his daughter lived in Los Angeles.
His last appearance in the MacGvyer shoe was in February 2019 where he last played.
