James Norton, 37, is currently gracing our screens as violent narcissist Tommy Lee Royce in BBC One’s Happy Valley alongside Sarah Lancashire who plays determined and good-humoured price sergeant Catherine Cawood. The series began in 2014 with the third and final series beginning on January 1, 2023.

James was nominated for a British Academy Television Award for his role in Happy Valley, and has also starred in the TV series Grantchester, War & Peace and McMafia.

Last year, he also appeared in the British thriller film Rogue Agent alongside Gemma Arterton.

The film was based on the article “Chasing Robert Freegard” by Michael Freegard. James played Robert Hendy-Freegard, a conman who tricked and convinced several people that he was an MI5 agent.

James was born in Lambeth, London but lived in the town of Malton in North Yorkshire growing up.

He has described his own upbringing as “idyllic”, having grown up on the edge of the Howardian Hills.

He now lives in Peckham in South East London which was once named the 11th coolest neighbourhood in the world.

The suburb is located in the London Borough of Southwark and is known for its delicious eateries, quirky street art, and the famous Peckham Levels – a converted multi-storey car park that’s filled with restaurants and artistic spaces.

The area is most famous for being the home of Del Boy and Rodney from British comedy sitcom, Only Fools and Horses.
