    Additional Information

    "I cast James Sheppard to be the lead in my first film, Striplight. He’s a compelling screen actor with the versatility to adjust the action you want played as directed, and brings intensity to the role. He gave me a brave and nuanced performance - which is exactly what Striplight needed, and I only regret not having more time and more scenes to shoot with James for a better film all round. I’m looking forward to seeing James Sheppard on more of our screens in the future. " - Alexander Clare, Director, Striplight

    "The NCO of the group, the Bible-reading Serjeant Musgrave, gives scope for a quite magnificent performance from James Sheppard" - Phil Cram, Workington Times & Star, 2013 (Serjeant Musgrave's Dance)

    About me

    Actor/Singer living in Harrow, London, with bases in Manchester, The Lake District, Vancouver and Brisbane. I have built up several years on-stage experience in leading and supporting roles, ranging from drama, comedy and musical theatre, and since completing my training I have focused on expanding my experience on screen. I bring an enthusiastic but focused attitude to any production and I pride myself for being able to take direction well and adapt on the fly. Am interested in working in all areas. Originally trained as a Set & Costume designer with additional experience in Stage Management. Founding member of The Roses Theatre Company.
