A Native Londoner with a wide experience of roles from Shakespeare to contemporary drama in television, film and theatre. Jim was an original member of the Hush-Hush Ensemble, performing classic plays in site- specific areas in S.E London. More recently he has appeared in Guiseppe Tornatore’s THE BEST OFFER, and Stephen Poliakoff’s DANCING ON THE EDGE.
Jim tackles challenging emotional roles as well as comedy and enjoys the journey inside his characters, from the way they speak to the way they think. He was acclaimed for his lead in new play BOTTICELLI'S ANGELS, as Irishman Frank O’Sullivan, dealing with the devastating effects of childhood abuse. By contrast, he earned great plaudits for his darkly humorous 'Malvolio' in TWELFTH NIGHT for Grassroots at Leicester Square Theatre.
On screen Jim's many credits have ranged from CALL THE MIDWIFE, DR WHO, SKYFALL and MURDER ON THE VICTORIAN RAILWAY to a leading role in 2019 short THE DEAD ONES, directed by Stefan Georgiou, attracting rave reviews and working with Martin Freeman upcoming in A CONFESSION for ITV.
Jim demonstrates his singing ability as the voice of the all-American Mr Peanut in the animated documentary THE LUCKIEST NUT IN THE WORLD.
