Payton, James Biography

biography of Payton, James

Mark Richard Payton
The Actor
18 December 1975, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, UK
5' 9"

-   'Zoë Kemp' (30 April 2011 - present)

-   Was the first actor to portray the character of Frank Longbottom in the Harry Potter series.

-   During the production of Robin Hood (2010), Ridley Scott decided he need an actor to play King Richard's (Danny Huston) death Physician. Elizabeth West, the film's script supervisor suggested James as a last minute solution.

-   James successfully auditioned for a different part in Captain America: The First Avenger. After a 1940s shave and haircut, it was pointed out that James bore a certain resemblance to an, at the time, uncast character. That of Hitler. James was subsequently recast in that role.

-   I got into movies so I could attempt to make the audience feel how I feel when I watch movies.

-   My father wasn't an actor and neither is my mother, but I'm given to understand that my grandmother dabbled... which is probably why we don't know who my grandfather was.

-   (October 2005) Happily living in Crouch End, North London. Waiting for Spielberg (who shares his birthday) to call.

-   (March 2009) Currently in preproduction on 'The Half Hour, Half Hour', a pilot comedy sketch show for television.
