George White

Played By Alistair Petrie

Alistair Petrie as George White in DEEP STATE.

Alistair Petrie stars in DEEP STATE as “George White,” English, 50’s, an old-school MI6 and chief of the British part of The Section.

In 2016 Alistair Petrie starred alongside Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie in the global hit The Night Manager for BBC/AMC, as well as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Having previously worked with Ron Howard on Rush, they worked together again on National Geographic’s Genius.
