Samuel James

20s to 40s

A confident, engaging Londoner with a solid background in acting & improvisation, Samuel is a BBC Audio Drama Award nominee for best supporting actor. Favourite on screen roles include Garth “Garfy” Stubbs in the ITV revival of Birds of a Feather and Phil Mitchell’s comically inept lawyer Jimmie Broome in Eastenders. Samuel can be heard on Audible in The War of the Worlds and The Man Who Would Be King, both recorded for BBC Radio 4. Other radio roles include a Russian Tsar, an Australian serial killer, a Bristolian fusilier, a Czech detective, an Elizabethan murderer, a two-timing lothario from Notting Hill, an interior designer from Texas and a Viking from Scarborough. An extensive list of stage credits includes musicals in the West End, Shakespeare at the National Theatre and - Samuel’s proudest professional achievement to date - James Graham's Monster Raving Loony at Soho Theatre, in which he impersonated over 30 British radio and television icons of the 20th Century to critical acclaim. Strong character work, a very keen ear for accents AND he sings!
