James: Acting gives you the chance to be something that may be so different from yourself and this is a fantastic achievement less than a year after graduating from drama school – awesome.
James: I think it's from when you're little and playing pretend – it's so much fun that why stop?
James: It's strange being labelled as one of the Hollyoaks hunks, but it can't be bad
James: It's funny as Nicole is very similar to my own mum. She even tells me off when i'm misbehaving on set. Myra definitely has her hands full being a mum to us lot but she handles it really well. She deserves a break today - but she'd better enjoy it while she can!
James: My agent told me before I went for the first casting, so I was aware that it was a gay part. And that was quite exciting for me because, i've never played a gay character before.
James: People have approached me in the street to tell me off for treating poor Hannah so badly. But they understand the heartbreak John Paul's going through. I find myself constantly defending him, it's like he's my baby!
