This week, James discovers that Liam has paid Sadie to stay away, how does James confront Liam?

James goes for the jugular but Liam is a proper adversary and isn’t as easy to pin down as James had hoped.

How does James react when he discovers that Ste kissed Harry?

Pretty badly! It’s a shock that rocks him and his trust in Harry.

Why has James suddenly become overwhelmed with suspicion, and will he be able to stop it?

Well he knows Harry has a chequered past and the fact he has gotten a woman pregnant, and kept that secret, makes James worry what else Harry is capable of hiding…

Is he threatened by Ste?

Yes of course. He knows how much they once loved each other, and anything is possible with Harry, so I think James is right to feel threatened.

Marnie is worried James is turning out like his father, do you think this is the case?

I hope not! That would be a steep decline indeed but he’s certainly starting out on that path.

James doesn’t believe Harry when he says he’s going to meet Sadie, why?

He’s not sure what to believe at this point. He desperately wants to trust him but there’s still a nagging doubt because of how much Harry’s lied about in the past.

Harry’s plea hearing is coming up soon, how important is this?

If Harry misses his hearing he’ll be remanded in custody, and ultimately blamed for the hit and run.

James vows to Marnie to put his paranoia behind him, will he stand by that?

I think James operates along the lines of “just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean they’re not after you…” He’s trusting his instincts at this stage.

Where would you like James to go from here, would you like to explore a different side of him?

You always want your character to find some happiness, but as an actor, drama often brings great challenges, so we’ll see!

We heard you went Glastonbury festival this weekend, how was it?

It was fantastic – so many brilliant performances!

Have you got any summer holidays planned?

We’re all going on little family holiday to Spain in a few weeks to celebrate my dad’s 70th which I’m really looking forward to.
