Famous actor of British descent, James Norton, nicknamed ‘the new James Bond’ for his role in McMafia , in fact he made his acting debut at the age of five when he portrayed the character Josephs in his primary school nativity drama. During his youth James gained some professional experience at the Scarborough Theatre. He was lucky enough to land a place at RADA after deciding to join the Marlowe Theatrical Society in Cambridge, but his big break came in 2009 when he got a part in the film called An Education.
The English celebrity has starred in films such as Doctor Who and George Gentle but is best known for his roles in War & Peace, Grantchester, McMafia, Pride and Prejudice, and Happy Valley. The latter earned him a British Academy Television Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 2015. It is noteworthy that the film Happy Valley has always remained very close to the heart of the actor to this day.
Is James Norton married? wife, girlfriend
McMafia ‘s new James Bond was more popular with his female co-stars than the original Bond himself, his name has been romantically linked to several ladies. During his Cambridge years he acted in a Shakespeare play with cymbeline with Lizzie Crarer who was his college sweetheart. In 2014, the actor’s name was linked to that of Eleanor Wyld, who appeared with him in the comedy-drama titled Bonobo
James and actress Jessie Buckley appeared to find love on the set of the BBC epic entitled War and Peacewhen she portrayed the characters of Marya andAndrei Bolkonsky (siblings on the set). However, they decided not to go public with their connection until March 2016 when they performed as a couple at the Olivier Awards at the Royal Opera House London. The exhibition of loved ones they put on for the occasion seemed to cement their status, they made a dramatic entrance together and were inseparable until the end of the event. James Norton candidly embodied the picture-perfect couple as they exchanged loving looks and smiles throughout the event, but the spokes in the wheel came in 2017 when their seemingly picture-perfect relationship landed on the rocks.
It’s a well-known fact that dating life in Hollywood is full of surprises and James’ case is no exception as he has found a new love interest after only a few months apart from Jessie. He met his newest love, Imogen Poots, when the duo portrayed the role of a possessed couple on the set of Belleville which was showing at the Donmar Theater. Their affair dates back to January 2017 and the couple isn’t averse to sharing a heavy romantic embrace in public. They were spotted sharing a passionate kiss in December 2017. Her public display of romantic feelings could spell heartbreak for his ex-girlfriend Jessie, but it’s certainly looking good for the couple.
The public only found out about their relationship at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018, when they decided to go public. While it’s not the first time the British superstar has hooked up with his co-star, we sincerely hope their story will be like the proverbial happy this time, as James really seems to only have eyes for Imogen.
Is James Norton gay? partner
Perhaps the rumors of the actor’s gay status began to pile up when he portrayed the character of Duncan Grant, who appeared as a gay painter in the BBC drama titled Life in Places , or just surfaced because of the actor’s beautiful physical endowment. Whatever it is, the rumors were killed on his very public affair with Jessie. His current love for Imogen sure has sealed the fact that the guy is straight, at least until he says otherwise.
Meanwhile, James Norton has said that he is very much looking forward to marriage and family life with children. According to him, he was brought up with his sister in a close-knit family and their parents are still very much in love until now and he wants to follow his father’s step and get married for the love that will last forever.
