Lance Kerwin

Lance Kerwin born November 6, 1960 in Newport Beach, California, USA) is an American actor, perhaps best remembered for his starring role in the TV series James at 15. Since the mid 1990s, however, Kerwin has not acted, instead focusing on his Christian religious beliefs, having become a pastor. He is married and has three children. His Hollywood heyday as a teen movie idol turned sour when he developed alcohol and drug problems, notably a 1989 drug bust in San Francisco. (He later claimed he had smoked marijuana before the age of ten and had taken crack cocaine in his 20s.) Rehab and a 'born again' re-discovery of religious faith turned his life around. He no longer has an acting career.
