The Stage Newspapers, March 01, 2001, A TRULY HOT SCOT

A visit by director David Hayman to his school in Glasgow introduced

James to a role in the modern day film noir The Near Room and the start of his career. James opted for the city's Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and found his creative feet - even before leaving last year.

While still studying, he secured a role in the movie Regeneration before the graduate landed parts in the BBC's Lorna Doone, Saving Private Ryan spin-off Band of Brothers and at the Traverse and Edinburgh Royal Lyceum theatres.

This summer James can be seen opposite David Suchet in Murder in Mind for the BBC.

James says: "He plays a respected head teacher with homoerotic fantasises who approaches a rent boy - me - and it's about how a good man is driven to do a bad thing."

He is also playing Mancunian Iggy in Jonathan Harvey's Out in the Open, which runs from March 15 to April 14 at the Hampstead Theatre.

James admires the working methods of the director, Kathy Burke: "Kathy is excellent and straight to the point. It's nice to do a new play. The writing is brilliant.

James made the move from Glasgow to London a year ago and admits that he is having to use more mouth muscles to be understood. But he does not mind.

"When you are an actor there is no point in getting on stage if people cannot hear what you are saying."
