James trained at Birmingham School of Acting. Recent highlights include Heartbreak Productions’ national open-air tour of Private Lives (“James Edwards is superb as Victor in a part which can often be overshadowed by Elyot’s but isn’t here” – Nottingham Post), and playing Prince Charles, the lead in Balls in the Air’s critically acclaimed musical comedy Fred & Gladys at the Landor Theatre (“skilfully performed, ****” – the Times; “pours off the stage with infectious energy, ****” – Daily Express; “Edwards turns in a very good impression ...he lets us see behind the parody and it’s touching” – Remote Goat). Other recent credits include Karenin in Anna Karenina (Myriad Productions); various children, animals and puppets in Blunderbus Theatre’s The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark; and Rooftop Theatre’s Love’s Labour’s Lost (“I doubt if anyone will forget Edwards’ guitar-playing Don Armado” – Herts Advertiser). He wrote and arranged music for many of these productions.
