Ginny and Georgia have plenty of boy problems in the Netflix hit and the arrival of Zion Miller—Ginny's motorcycle-riding dad and Georgia's ex—complicates things even further in season one. And you'll be seeing a lot more of Zion in Ginny & Georgia season 2, when he becomes a more permanent fixture in the Miller ladies' lives. 

The Netflix dramedy has been nothing short of a hit since its arrival on our screens in 2021. The Gilmore Girls-compared show is more like How to Get Away With Murder but it has us hooked.

Telling the story of a mother-daughter duo, Ginny (played by Antonia Gentry) and her young single mom Georgia (Brianne Howey), who has moved from Texas to Wellsbury along with Ginny’s younger brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca). Though told in the present day, the show often gives us flashbacks to Georgia as an even younger mom with a mysterious past.

Ginny’s father Zion appears in both the past and present as his relationship with both his ex and their daughter is explored in both seasons. Georgia fell pregnant with Ginny at 15 and the couple moved in with Zion's parents to raise the baby before Georgia ran away when Zion’s parents suggested that they should have custody of Ginny. From that point on, Zion and Georgia have an on-again, off-again relationship as Georgia moves from state to state and Zion travels the world doing photography.

But what do we know about the actor who plays Ginny’s bombshell of a dad?
