New Yorker James Newman was practically dragged into showbiz. He was just cruising through his high school senior year, applying to colleges and practicing for amateur boxing league The New York Golden Gloves, when his brother forced him to attend Skins’
Open Call. Even though James had no previous acting experience, he gave it a shot just to get his brother off his back. Luckily, the audition worked out! Someone’s brother better be getting a nice Christmas present this year...
James was one of the last Skins
actors to be cast. He says that after he got the congratulatory call, he celebrated by packing for the shoot. Exciting!
