Well, if you have watched the West End Musical “Dreamboats and Petticoats”, then you do not need an introduction to the man himself. Yes, we are talking about James Nitti, who portrayed the role of Bobby Croft effortlessly in the aforementioned musical. James has always been a music lover and thus playing this rock and roll character straight out of the 50’s was extremely exciting for him. In fact, whoever sees his performance, is dumbstruck with the kind of ease in which he pulls off in this role. Surprisingly, someone as new and as young as he is, does not seem to lack that maturity and stability in front of audiences. Many people from the industry are calling him the Zac Efron of the United Kingdom.
James has always been sure from the very beginning that he was going to spend his life in front of the cameras and on stage. When he started out at age 9 in a television drama, he immediately realized that this was his calling and he was going to work in front of the camera to etch out his living. Thinking on the same lines, he auditioned and then got selected for the National Youth Theatre and National Youth Musical Theatre, where he used to perform nationally to packed audiences in London. However, he confesses that these acting performances served him a great deal for his future. In the name of training, he also attended the renowned Guildford School of Acting in London.
He will also be starring in the upcoming movie “Dragons of Camelot”, where he is portraying the character of Galahad, the only son of King Arthur. He totally loved this experience and movie insiders are raving about his performance in this role. This budding star would love to one day work with Lord of the Rings fame Ian McKellan and to this day, idolizes Daniel Day Lewis and Tom Hanks.
This young heartthrob has rocketed past many of the veterans in the acting world and it looks like he could be the next Tom Hanks of Hollywood. Amen!
