James Purefoy

Highest Rated: 83% Equity (2016)
Birthday: Jun 3, 1964
Birthplace: Taunton, Somerset, England, UK
Left Sherborne School at age 16, then enrolled in night school to finish his O-levels. Worked as a hospital orderly for several years after leaving school. Took up acting while studying for his A-levels at Brooklands Technical College because he was in need of a third subject and, as importantly, the girl-boy ratio in the class was 3 to 1. His first acting job was as Alan Strang in a touring production of Equus. Acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company for several years after leaving drama school.
