George comments “I’m very excited about working on StreetDance 2 3D, the film is going to be totally amazing. I’m looking forward to playing Eddie again especially as I have more of a central role – I’ll be showcasing some spectacular moves. I also can’t wait to be filming all over Europe in some incredible locations.”
