2018James Ducker captures all of the delightful swagger of Peter Venkman, the role originated by Bill Murray

2018James Ducker’s portrayal of Peter Venkman is particularly well pitched

2016Ducker is a consistent and calm force, mostly straight-man foil but also showing good timing delivering his own gags
James Goffin

2016a beautifully versatile facial performance, moving from amusement to shock to sheer bewilderment at what is going on around him.

    Additional Skills

    I played the mandolin at a young age and it is something that wouldn't take me long to re learn.

    About me

    I have always loved performing, ever since the age of 8.

    From commercials in Taiwan to theatre in London I have had the good fortune to some wonderful experiences.

    Since relocating back to my home city of Norwich I have formed at Theatre company which was nominated for it's work in promoting new writing and has generated a community of professionals looking to take new work to the next level. This company also allowed me to head to Edinburgh 2018 with the unusual and amazing personal project with Ministers of Grace: The Unauthorised Shakespearean Parody of Ghostbusters, where the company sold out and received nothing but 4 and 5 star reviews. On a personal level I received high praise for my portrayal of Peter Venkman, a personal highlight for me.

    As an actor, I studied drama at the University of Northampton where I studied many theories of lesser known dramaturgs and practitioners. As well as gaining my first professional production at the Royal Theatre in Twelfth Night.

    From there I have always found ways to work around day to day work to follow my true passion, from voiceovers for university projects to small adverts and short films. My warming persona and adaptable character has got me roles in various web based commercials and varying cocky and arrogant roles.

    I never stop learning and trained with The Actor's Class under the tutelage or Mary Doherty in 2014.

    My passion to succeed and my drive to achieve the best I can pushes me to accomplish any goals.
