The Beautiful Jorgina Alexandra “Jorgie” Porter is an English actress and model, notable for her role as Theresa McQueen in the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.
Porter grew up with her mother and grandmother and has only met her father once. She is quoted as saying: “I don’t speak to my dad. I haven’t missed him. I don’t feel like I need a father figure really. On Father’s Day some of the girls who are talking about it suddenly remember and apologise. I just say “Guys it’s okay. I don’t care”. I don’t know any better so it’s cool.” A former ballet dancer, Porter was told by the ballet school she attended that she was overweight for a dancer.
In November 2008 it was announced that Porter had joined the cast of Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks, playing the role of Theresa McQueen. Porter said that she was “thrilled” to join the cast and be a part of one of soap opera’s “most notorious families”.
In 2010, Porter appeared alongside eight other soap opera actesses in a music video and cover of Cyndi Lauper single Girls Just Want To Have Fun. The song was released in aid of charity, Cancer Research UK’s campaign “Race for Life”. Porter also featured as a dancer in the music video for Roll Deep’s song Green Light. She appeared with dark hair instead of her usual blonde tone.
