Biography

James completed his training at LAMDA in July of last year. Since then he has been working steadily. Parts have included "Cal" in a touring production of East Of Eden, the lead in a BBC Radio4 play and a Mossad assassin in Channel4's Munich: Mossad's Revenge. Previously James obtained a Drama Degree from Bristol University.

Whilst at LAMDA, notable performances included "Yoyo" in Three Birds Alighting On A Field, directed by Crispin Bonham-Carter and he also played seven different characters in Baal, directed by John Bashford and Mark Ravenhill.

James was born and raised in London and so has a native RP/London accent, but he is half French and as a result, fully bilingual. He is also a talented guitarist.
