Interesting Facts

2 Lived with Fay Ripley for more than a decade.
3 James' co-star in Rome (2005), Kevin McKidd, also played his love interest in Bedrooms and Hallways (1998).
4 He was cast as the leading man in V for Vendetta (2005) but departed halfway in having had creative differences with the makers of the film.
5 He has a son named Joseph born in 1997 with ex-wife Holly Aird.
6 The name, Purefoy, is originally Norman French and literally means "good faith" or "my word or bond is in good faith." Some Purefoys went to England during the Norman Conquest and others emigrated to England as French Huguenot expatriates in the fifteenth century.
7 Screen tested for the Bond role in GoldenEye (1995).
8 In 1997, Purefoy was voted "hunk of the year" by a British television magazine.
9 At boarding school, he once serenaded the girls at a nearby school with thirteen stanzas of "Greensleeves."
10 At his Somerset home, Purefoy personally constructed a tree house for his young son.


1 The first job I ever did was Equus on stage, as the boy, and I was 17, and we opened the show with me naked in the spotlight being examined by doctors. That was my entrance to the stage, so anything after that was easy. Also, for some reason, nudity was never shameful, it was never brought up in my household when I was a kid, there was no 'dirty, dirty sex'. It's not like we all ran around naked in some horrid 70s nightmare, it just was never an issue, and because it was never an issue I've never been embarrassed, I guess.
2 "Ah, nudity. That's quite a recent thing, the nudity. It's come in the early autumn of my career." (Jan. 2006)
3 If you find yourself always playing the villain, or if you find yourself being typecast into a corner where you're not happy then that's probably rather miserable, but if I have been typecast I am reasonably happy about it as what Ive been typecast as ain't so bad"
4 The age of chivalry isn't dead, is it? It doesn't even have to be a man or a woman that you could be chivalrous to. If somebody's in trouble you give them a hand.
5 In the July 4, 2001 Newswatch, Wild West End column: "There was one woman whom I was absolutely infatuated with, but she had no interest in me. I was very young at the time and thought the way to prove my love was to write a book for her. It ran for pages and pages and I had it bound in leather to give to her. But it still didn't have the desired effect."
