Ever since 2012 James has been interested and involved in acting.
In 2012 James played the menacing and evil Jafar in the "Aladdin the Musical"
James has always been keen on playing a completely different person to himself but still showing some built-in characteristics of himself in a character.

Some of the most memorable stage performances James has performed in are;
- "Romeo & Juliet", where he played the young heartthrob, Romeo
- "The Kelly Gang", where James played Ned Kelly's brother, Dan Kelly
- "Beautiful Burnout", where he played the cocky boxer, Ajay Chopra
- "DNA", In which he played the misfit, Richard

'Acting is and always will be a huge passion of mine and I hope to look back in a few years and remember these performances as important stepping stones.'

In 2018 I was part of a professional short film shot for The National Trust, about The Gallipoli Peninsula , and Australian soldier's involvement in World War II.
The film focused upon Gresley and Wilfred Harper, two local Perth boys who attended Guildford Grammar School (The school I graduated from in 2018), who joined the 10th Light Horse Regiment. The film "Woodbridge at War" tells the story of the letters sent back home from Greslely and Wilfred Harper through reenactments and interviews with "Gresley" played by myself and other actors playing other characters.
I played Heath Ledger’s casting director for the film “10 things I hate about you” in a short biopic of Heath Ledger’s life. I was also a runner and helped out behind the scenes with whatever was needed.
I have learnt a lot about film, acting, cameras and camera shots and even suggested some ideas for some shots that have ended up in the final film.

I have also been in several Yr11 and Yr12 media films, "Florence" shown above being my favourite. I have been an extra in a TV Pilot called “Oh Boyz” and an extra in episode 2 of “why we’re not friends”
