Owen James

Age: 36 yrs & 10 mths

I’m Owen James, an Irish actor from County Armagh. I’ve been involved in performance most of my life, beginning with amateur dramatics before studying performing arts at Belfast Metropolitan College. My first film role was a speaking part in ‘You Looking At Me?’, for Channel 4 Schools. Since then I’ve had lead roles in several short films, been the front man of a busy wedding band and performed as a principal character in the musical ‘Our House’ at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall. I’ve trained, and continue to train in, the Meisner Technique, improv, script analysis and other performance related disciplines with several acting schools in the UK and US.
