“As a lone wolf, Zack had a difficult childhood that made him decide never to depend on anyone or become too clingy.
“Forever the man of the ladies, Zack will be sure to pucker a few feathers when he arrives in Walford. Will he finally find the home he always needed or will he have difficulty following him to Albert Square? “
James graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. However, he has appeared on numerous television shows including Call the Midwife, Silent Witness, and Blank Shores.
