Since its second season premiered on January 5, 2023, Ginny & Georgia has been trending on the internet. The show has been a great hit on Netflix since its debut in 2021, with the coming-of-age drama garnering similarities to the iconic comedy Gilmore Girls.
The show is the story of a single mother named Georgia who comes to an affluent town in Massachusetts with her two children, Ginny and Austin, to provide them with a better life.
Ginny, bright but doesn’t have many friends at school, is told by her teacher that her stepfather died in a car accident, and the family moves to the imaginary town of Wellsbury following the burial.
The story is recounted in both present-day and flashbacks, with the episodes in the past focusing on Georgia’s mysterious past. With the show, the cast members have also gained popularity.
One of them is Mason Temple. He is one of the recurring cast who plays the role of Hunter Chen, one of Ginny’s love interests.
Who is Mason Temple?
Temple is an actor who has been involved in the entertainment industry for a couple of years. His first prominent project is Ginny & Georgia.
Temple was born on January 17, 1996. He is a Taiwanese Canadian who grew up in Canada’s Fort St. John.
However, he holds citizenship in Taiwan and Canada. He took to Instagram to announce that he became a Taiwanese citizen on February 21, 2019, and showed off his passport from Taiwan and Canada.
As of 2023, Temple’s age is 27. He plays a high-schooler in the series, making an age gap of almost ten years in reel and real life.
There is no definite information about Temple’s height. However, some websites claim he’s roughly 5ft 9 inches tall. He towers over his Ginny & Georgia co-star Antonia Gentry, who is 5ft 1.
Mason Temple’s parents and family
Not much is known about Temple’s parents and family since he rarely shares about them. Once, he shared a picture of a man and a woman he went hiking with to Quarry Rock, Deep Cove, BC, in 2018.
It is unknown if they are his parents, but Temple kept the hashtag #HikingWithFamily.
In 2019, he penned a lengthy caption, grieving the loss of his grandfather. He uploaded a photo of his grandfather and aunt blowing candles from the same cake since they shared a birthday.
Temple shared that it was the last photo he took of his grandfather since a “distracted driver” took him away from the actor. He confessed that it was the second time something like this had happened.

The first time, a friend died, making him scared of getting close to people. His age was 14 at the time, and it made him reckless and angry.
But when his grandfather passed away, Temple was 23 years old. Instead of feeling angry, he felt regret, defeated, and crushed.
He wrote, “Old people are fragile, and I knew he wouldn’t be here forever, but like this? We were about to go on a tour to see the country with my mom and Emily, it’s almost Chinese New Year, I might gain citizenship next month.”
Temple did not want to feel that way, and he knew his grandfather did not want him to regret it. He then shared the happy moments his family celebrated with the patriarch, like watching the first grandkids get engaged and meeting Temple’s partner.
The actor wrote, “He made it past 80. He knows he is loved. And it hurts so much, but for hours before, he was laughing and having fun at a family dinner and still laughing on the way home. He is loved.”
