Happy birthday, James Scott.

As the Days of Our Lives fanbase eagerly embraces the newest portrayal of EJ DiMera, it’s time to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane to celebrate the birthday of the original EJ, the talented actor James Scott. Born on January 14, 1979, in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne, Scott turns 45 today, marking a significant milestone in his illustrious career.

James Scott’s journey in the entertainment industry is a testament to his passion and dedication. A period of self-discovery led him to Scotland, where he immersed himself in the world of performing arts at the renowned Gilded Balloon Theatre. His pursuit of knowledge and skill took him to London, where he was scouted and signed by Storm Model Management, providing him the opportunity to study further at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

During a brief stint in Los Angeles, Scott’s interest in acting intensified as he shadowed an acting class at the Ivana Chubbuck Studio in Hollywood. Motivated by this experience, he saved up to make a permanent move to L.A. Subsequent acting classes paved the way for his first professional role in 2004 as Ethan Cambias on the ABC daytime soap opera All My Children, a role he portrayed until 2006.

In a significant turn of events in May 2006, it was announced that James Scott would join the cast of NBC’s Days of Our Lives. Just 27 days after taping his first scene, he made his debut on the show, capturing the hearts of viewers over the next eight years as the captivating and sometimes villainous leading man, EJ DiMera. His on-screen chemistry with Alison Sweeney’s Sami Brady became a fan favorite, earning Scott two Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor.

In 2014, James Scott decided to bid farewell to Days of Our Lives to explore new acting opportunities. Within a year, he showcased his versatility with appearances in episodes of Private Eyes and Wrecked.
