It was as a child that Jamie did his first paid acting work, dubbing a French film into English while in Paris and then doing the odd TV commercial after moving back to the U.K. at the age of 7. At St. Paul's School in London he developed his love for the theater and for all things athletic. He became School Captain in his final year, before going to Cambridge University to study French and Italian literature. While there he played university rugby and performed in many theatrical productions. He also spent a study year in Pavia, Italy, before graduating with first-class honors.
While Jamie has always wanted to act, his acceptance to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art marked the decision to make it his career. Still at LAMDA, he was cast in his first professional role, as Archie Kennedy in A&E's Horatio Hornblower miniseries. His recent credits include Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' HBO miniseries, Band of Brothers, as well as Daniel Deronda for the BBC. Jamie was a series regular on the ITV shows Peak Practice and Ultimate Force, and most recently portrayed the role of Price Hal in Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2, at the Bristol Old Vic.
Jamie has since worked steadily in TV, film and radio in Europe and the United States.
