Most times child actors do not gain the same success when they grow up and start playing the lead. Georgina Cates is, however, the exception. Cates who started her career at the young age of sixteen gained success even as the main actor.
Dating Her Fan
Many online relationships are mostly casual; however, few became serious. Georgina Cates and Mark Banks's relationship is one such.
Cates' current boyfriend, Mark Banks, was a massive fan of her since her acting days. So, when he found she is available on Facebook, he took his chance and sent a Facebook request. Luckily for him, she accepted his offer, and they became Facebook friends.
Banks though became acquaintances with Georgina in social media; he, however, was never able to develop the courage to talk with her online. After stalking her for a long time, he sent a photo clicked by him to impress her. To his surprise, she liked his work and replied to him and as they say, rest is history.
The pair started talking first about the work and slowly about different things. Without realizing they were talking for hours though they were living in different parts of the world at that time.
The pair continued this routine for the next two months, however after that, they thought it was the time to meet. Thus, Mark came to the USA to visit her.
At first, the online acquaintances were a little awkward and very not talkative; however, after a while, they were comfortable with one another. As soon as they were in that position, it was time for Mark to leave for the UK.
At that time, Cates made one bold decision to move back to the UK with him. The blossoming relationship between them was not the only factor on her choice; however,, it played an important role.
At present, the lovebirds live in Brighton, UK. The couple is together for over a year only; however, Mark is more than ready for a lifelong commitment. He has proposed her multiple times; however, she has rejected each time.
Cates denying Mark's proposal is not surprising given her past experiences in marriages.
Cates was previously married to American actor Skeet Ulrich. The pair first met at an Academy Awards party and clicked instantly.
After a while, on 5 October 1997, the pair tied the knot and moved to a house in Virginia that by designed by Ulrich himself. After settling in Virginia, she kept her acting on hold.
After staying five years away from the limelight, the couple moved to LA. Sadly, the move to Hollywood town was not good for their relationship. Only two years after relocating to Los Angeles, the couple separated, and On 23 June 2005, the pair divorced, citing irreconcilable differences.
This was the second divorce for Georgina. Before meeting Ulrich, she was already a divorcee. The name of her first husband is a mystery.
