James began performing from a young age, quickly discovering an admiration for making it a profession. Training throughout his youth studying under the Trinity and Guildhall examinations, he was fortunate enough to even appear as ‘Michael’ in a professional production of the classic pantomime ‘Peter Pan’.
In 2015, James’ perseverance finally paid off, as after his third attempt, he became a member of the National Youth Theatre. It was during the Summer course he found a love of comedy, and his strength in creating it.
Following on from a series of successful GCSE and A-Level results, James went on to get a BA(Hons) degree in ‘Acting and Performance’ at the University for the Creative Arts. Over the course of his studies here, he was able to broaden his skill set across both theatre and screen.
His specialist skills lie in Sight reading, Verse speaking, Improvisation and Comedic timing.
