British Actors
Theo James

This is the first time I’m writing about a celebrity who shares the same birthday with me. Which means I have a birthday mate who has made a giant mark in the show business, not just in the Cinema of the United Kingdom but also in Hollywood. Editor’s note: No birthday treats for anyone this year. Period.

Here are five things you need to know about Theo James, the English actor, and producer.

1. Theo James was born in Wycombe England

Theo James is the son of Philip Taptiklis, a business consultant and Jane a worker at the National Health Service. He was born on 16 December 1984 in High Wycombe, England. Now to refresh your geography knowledge a little, High Wycombe is a large town in Buckinghamshire and Buckinghamshire shares borders with  Berkshire to the south, Oxfordshire to the west, Northamptonshire to the north, Bedfordshire to the northeast and Hertfordshire to the east. So many shires. So much for a geography class.

Theo James is the last child in the family of five. He has two brothers and two sisters. The actor studied at Aylesbury Grammar School and later proceeded to the University of Nottingham where he bagged a degree in Philosophy.

Theo James discovered that something was missing after his university education so he went to receive training at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School to revive his childhood passion, something he almost threw away in the pages of Pluto, Aristotle and the know thyself guy.

2. The actor was a Passionate Woman

No, he is not transgender. The actor made his television debut in the BBC mini-series drama “Passionate Woman” in 2010. He played the role of Alex “Craze” Crazenovski. The same year, the actor made his first film appearance in the movie “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” as Ray.
