A native of London, and the child of Afro-Trinidadian parents, Lennie James attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. In the early 1990s, James made several appearances in television movies and, in 1995, landed the role of D.C. Bruce Hannaford on the cop show "Out of the Blue," which ran for a year. James starred on the big screen in the film adaptation of the television show "Lost in Space" in 1998, then returned to the small screen for the TV drama "Storm Damage," which he also wrote. He made an impression in the Guy Ritchie crime comedy "Snatch" with Brad Pitt, and also appeared in Michael Winterbottom's well-received post-punk film "24 Hour Party People" in 2002. For two seasons, James co-starred in the apocalyptic drama "Jericho" (CBS 2006-08), before appearing as Morgan Jones on the critically-acclaimed zombie drama "The Walking Dead" (AMC 2010- ), becoming a key character in the show's tangled mythology. Between seasons, James appeared in the gritty revenge movie "Colombiana" (2011),starring Zoe Saldana, and in the tough-guy sci-fi movie "Lockout" (2012) featuring Guy Pearce. James also co-starred in the atmospheric cop series "Low Winter Sun" (AMC 2013) and appeared in the James Brown biopic "Get On Up" (2014) before returning to British television as the star of the medical drama "Critical" (Sky 2015). James next starred in Ernest Dickerson's "Double Play" (2017) and narrated TV documentary "The Met: Policing London" (BBC One 2015- ) before taking a key supporting role in Denis Villeneuve's acclaimed science fiction blockbuster "Blade Runner 2049" (2017). In December 2017, it was announced that James' character Morgan Jones was moving from "The Walking Dead" to spinoff/prequel series "Fear the Walking Dead" (AMC 2015- ) for that show's fourth season.
