James Francis Ginty

James Francis Ginty is a second-generation performer following in the footsteps of his parents, actor-writer-director Robert Ginty and actress Francine Tacker.

Ginty is currently workshopping the Bill C. Davis play Mass Appeal for off-Broadway and heads back to UCLA in the fall to finish his degree in history. Last year, he worked on the campaign for Barack Obama and recently completed a college internship at the DSCC (Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee) in Washington, D.C.

Born in Los Angeles, Ginty grew up in D.C. Destined for the performing-arts arena, he attended high school at the famed Interlochen Arts Academy in Interlochen, Mich. (after a stint at Valley Forge Military Academy in Pennsylvania), then enrolled in The Juilliard School in New York City, where he concentrated his studies in acting and ballet. He also studied classical ballet for seven years at several different schools, including The American Ballet Theatre, The Royal Ballet and The National Ballet of Canada. He formally began acting while in high school, later attending such renowned programs as the British American Drama Academy and The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art before entering Juilliard.

Ginty left Juilliard early to make his motion picture debut opposite Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson in K-19: The Widowmaker. While future roles would include guest spots on ER and Private Practice, Ginty next pursued work in the theatre, with credits such as Tom Stoppard's Night and Day at Philadelphia's Wilma Theater, Romeo in the Shakespeare classic at the Seattle Rep, and another work by The Bard, All's Well That Ends Well, at the Folger Shakespeare Theater in Washington, D.C.
