    About me

    James McCabe's love for acting first lead him to audition for a local acting troop and saw him perform at the stage of The John Clare Theatre, Cambridgeshire in 2003.

    But his love for film and his ever increasing desire to follow his dreams were first realised during his first film shoot that gave him the chance to work alongside some truly talented actors such as Anna Walton (Hell Boy II, Vampire Diary, 5 Days of War etc). It is here he caught 'the bug' and has not looked back since. He has gone on to land a variety of roles within a number of micro-budget British feature films to date.

    His portrayal of a violent, murderous husband in director David Easton's short film 'Love is...' won 1st place by public vote at Film Northants short film festival 2010 in Northamptonshire, England which in turn earned him a pivotal character role in the David Easton's next feature film 'Bloodline' amongst others.

    In 2011 James gained representation from Jackie Nicholson Associates, London in 2011.
