Pre Neighbours career

Georgie Robertson Stone OAM (born 20 May 2000 in Melbourne, Australia) is an Australian actress and transgender rights advocate. At the age of 10, Stone was the youngest person to receive hormone blockers in Australia, which set a precedent that eventually changed the law that compelled transgender children and their families to apply to the Family Court of Australia to access stage one treatment. She continues to advocate for transgender children, and is one of the most visible transgender individuals in Australia.

In March 2019, Stone joined Australian television soap opera Neighbours in the guest role of Mackenzie Hargreaves. She plays the first ever transgender character on the show, having pitched the role to the show's producers a year earlier. Stone began filming her scenes in June, with the episodes to be aired later in the year. Stone described Mackenzie as "a bit world weary, a bit cynical, a bit hardened by her experiences". She also described her as "sweet, compassionate and lovely" when she opens up to other people. In September, it was announced that Stone would appear in a spin-off titled Neighbours: Erinsborough High, reprising her role from the main show. The series will be released on My5 and 10 Play in November, and consists of five episodes that "explore issues universally troubling teens today – bullying, mental illness, sexuality, cultural diversity, parental and peer pressure, and teacher-student relationships."On 19 October 2019, it was announced that Stone would be promoted to the regular cast in early 2020.
