From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

James D'Arcy is an English actor. He was born 24 August 1975 in London, UK.

James was brought up in Fulham and fell into acting almost by accident. After completing his education at Christ's Hospital, James went to Australia for a year and worked in the drama department of a school in Perth, which gave him an interest in acting. When he returned to London he applied for Drama School. He attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, gaining a BA in Acting in 1995. During his three-year course at LAMDA he gained acting experience by appearing in the plays Heracles, As You Like It, Wild Honey, The Freedom of the City and Sherlock Holmes. He says on leaving Drama School; It was only when I finished the course and left my graduation diploma on the bus that I realised I'd become an actor.

His television appearances include the series Silent Witness, Tom Jones, Sunburn and Dalziel and Pascoe and the dramas The Ice House, The Canterville Ghost, Ruth Rendell's Bribery and Corruption, Rebel Heart, Nicholas Nickleby, POW and the made-for-TV movie where he portrayed Sherlock Holmes 'Case of Evil' or 'Young Sherlock'. D'Arcy's film credits include The Trench, The Bass Player Peter, Charity, Wilde, Guest House Paradiso, Dot The I, Master & Commander, Exorcist : The Beginning.

James on Acting;

I don't have any expectations as an actor and being rich and famous is not my driving force. I'm not really very ambitious. I'm more interested in enjoying my life and looking after my family than being hugely successful. There are lots of people I admire and respect, but I don't necessarily want to be like them. I'm too happy being myself.

The reason I wanted to be an actor is that I don't want to play me for the rest of my life and make money out of that. I'm attracted to seeing how different I can be, pushing the boat out.

Nominated for the Ian Charleson Award 2002 (Outstanding Performance In A Classical Role) Edward II
