Up-and-coming actress Antonia Gentry was only a five-year-old when she knew she wanted to become an actress. This makes sense when you consider the fact that she is greatly passionate about her craft. So, it isn’t a surprise the years of working in the community theater landed her a breakthrough role on Netflix. Antonia plays Ginny in the dramedy streaming television series Ginny & Georgia which was released on Netflix on February 24, 2021.
Below is Wikipedia-style writing about Antonia covering everything: from her parents and ethnicity to her age and height.

Antonia Gentry Wikipedia — Parents, Siblings, Ethnicity
Antonia Gentry does not have any siblings. From her parents Sandra and Tony Gentry, she inherited biracial ethnicity. Her father is white and her mother is Black and from Jamaica.
She said, growing up, her mother was someone who she could confide in if she ever felt a certain way about her racial identity.
Over an Insta-confession, in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd, Antonia revealed how she had experienced racism all her.
“Whether it was white kids in school making jokes about my father marrying a ‘monkey’, being called a ‘mixed-mongrel mutt’, being called any colorful name under the sun, being told by white boys ‘you look better with your hair straight,’ or being told by white girls “I’d love to have a mixed baby but I don’t want to deal with all that nappy hair,” ‘for a black girl, you’re pretty,’ ‘you don’t act black,’ ‘you’re not black, you’re Jamaican.’”
Other than that, the Atlanta, Georgia-born seeming had a well-enough upbringing. Aware of her love for arts, she briefly middle school for a stint at Davidson Fine Arts in Augusta, Georgia. The first play the young Antonia ever performed was an original work written by none other than her mom who happens to have a knack for poetry and art.
Net Worth, Movies, TV Shows
Although Ginny & Georgia is Antonia’s first leading role on television, she has previously appeared on other Netflix titles like the high school rom-com movie Candy Jar and the superhero series Raising Dion.
Looking back, being an active leader in Emory’s Rathskellar Comedy Improv troupe and performing in the likes of Romeo and Juliet, A Tempest, at the Equity theater, were some of her proud accomplishments.
So, from all this, Antonia Gentry reportedly saved an estimated $300 thousand for her net worth.
About Antonia Gentry Role In Ginny & Georgia
It was the week of graduation from Emory University and Antonia was “very swamped” with her finals and exams. She was all stressed and working a part-time job when she recorded an audition tape for Ginny & Georgia. She was busy with school wrapping up when she almost forgot she had sent the tape. Two weeks later, they called her for a producer session over FaceTime, and the following week she was already flying out to Los Angeles for the chemistry read. Then, there’s this blood clot problem she faced flying back and forth to read for the role, but that’s another story for another time.
Anyway, Antonia felt beyond proud to play the 15-year-old mixed-race lead because she hardly saw one on-screen growing up. To W Magazine, she said:
“Very rarely do you come across scripts [with] characters that you can totally relate with. I felt like Ginny was finally that. I thought to myself, ‘Wow, this is a really great character.'”
Social Media Reach: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter
The new release on Netflix definitely helped boost her followers to 10.8k (as of Feb. 25, 2021) on Instagram. Besides, one could also look Antonia up on Facebook.

As mentioned on Antonia Gentry’s Facebook relationship status: she has been dating boyfriend Ezra Pound precisely since March 2, 2013. And of course, the living proofs of their romance have to be their social media sharings where they look very much in love.
