James trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts for three years on the performing arts course. He trained in every aspect of performance, however his main passion is for acting, followed by a love of singing. Whilst training he appeared in many in house productions. In his third year he did a small tour of Macbeth, playing the part of Banquo.
Since graduating James has got down to the final recall of many television and film roles, but always just missing out to someone with more experience!! This annoys James as he knows he can compete with more established actors if just given the chance. He also got down to the last two for a new presenter for CITV, again just missing out due to less experience than the other person!
