We love Theo James–and of course he’s the perfect Four! It seems People Magazine agrees! Check out this new article where they tell us 4 things we should know about him and see if you learn anything new!
1. He appeared on Downton Abbey – briefly.
Loyal Downton fans might recognize James as Turkish diplomat Kemal Pamuk, who leaves quite the impression in about 20 minutes of a 2010 episode of the show (no spoilers here, but Google “Theo James Downton Abbey” to learn more). “It’s very, very flattering,” James told Cosmopolitan of the attention he received for his appearance. “But the ratio of work I actually did to all the talk about it … feels a bit fraudulent.”
2. He’s talented and smart.
Before jumping into acting, James – one of five kids born to Oxfordshire-based parents – earned a degree in philosophy from England’s University of Nottingham. Of waiting until his early 20s to start his career, James told Variety, “It might have worked for others, but I was not mature enough to [start young]. I needed to be a bit more grounded and to have more to draw from. It was the right decision for me.”
3. His résumé is short, but impressive.
James’s second credited role was in Woody Allen’s 2010 film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, which co-starred Naomi Watts and Sir Anthony Hopkins, among others. Coming up, you can see him in London Fields with none other than Johnny Depp, and Franny with Dakota Fanning and Richard Gere. And this is just the beginning of his career …
4. He’s got other skills.
Sadly we don’t know this from personal experience, but according to Divergent costar Woodley, James is “a great kisser.” Oh, and “he’s an incredibly masculine man with a beautiful soulful heart,” too. What more could a girl want?
