Biography

"Powerful and weighty, James is an engaging performer who has it all in abundance. James has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, at the Old Vic Tunnels in Go To your God Like A Soldier and as lead in Oranges On The Brain at the Pegasus Theatre, Oxford and London transfer. He is the face of the new OXO family (commercial). James can be seen in three independent feature films: Marc Price's Magpie (the director of COLIN), The Way Of The Monkeys Claw (lead) and war film Screaming Guns (co-lead), now in post production. TV includes LAW & ORDER:UK.

Born and raised in Essex, James initially discovered a love for acting at school and joined local Youth theatre company Theatretrain. During that time he performed at some of London's leading theatres including The Lyceum, The Palladium and Theatre Royal Drury Lane. James won a drama scholarship to the Kings School Ely, before reading American Studies, Art History and Film at Kent with a third year at the prestigious UCLA Film School. On graduation James worked for Celador Productions, before embarking on a Masters degree at Central School of Speech and Drama where he gained an MA in Acting for Screen."
