A member of the Selig stock company that pioneered filmmaking in Southern California, George Hernandez later supported California actress Myrtle Gonzalez in a series of popular outdoor adventures. Hernandez's career declined after Gonzalez's sudden death in the 1918 influenza epidemic but he did return in a couple of Tom Mix Westerns in the early '20s. Hernandez was the husband of actress Anna Dodge (1867-1945). His death was attributed to the aftereffects of an operation.
