Good to see OA Theo James (Paterson '03) on our screens on Sunday evenings. He stars in Sanditon, which is based on Jane Austen's final novel, written only months before Austen's death in 1817. Charlotte Heywood moves to the sleepy seaside village of Sanditon and meets Sidney Parker (Theo James), who is trying to turn it into a fashionable resort.
Theo studied Philosophy at Nottingham University and then went on to Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He made his acting debut in 2010 in the British mini-series, A Passionate Woman. From there, he appeared in an episode of Downton Abbey, before landing a starring role of Jed Harper in the supernatural drama, Bedlam (2011). In 2013 Theo was cast as the lead protagonist in the crime drama, Golden Boy.
Aside from television, Theo has starred in several films including, Underworld: Awakening (2012), The Divergent Series (2014), War on Everyone (2016), and The Secret Scripture (2016). He is best known for playing Tobias Eaten in The Divergent Series, a film trilogy based on the Divergent novels by the American author Veronica Roth.
Theo returned to School in March 2017 to share his experience with our drama and communications & culture students and at the same time, he “officially opened” our refurbished Sixth Form Centre.
