James Norton – Bio, Married, Wife, Girlfriend, Gay, Partner, Height

The famed actor of British descent James Norton who has been dubbed “the new James Bond for his role in McMafia actually made his acting debut at age five when he portrayed the character of Joseph in his primary school nativity drama. During his teen years, James underwent some work experience at Scarborough Theatre. He was lucky to get a place at RADA after his decision to join the Marlowe Theatrical Society at Cambridge, but his big break came in 2009 when he landed a part in the film titled An Education.

The English celeb has had minor roles in films like Doctor Who and George Gently but he is best known for the roles he played in War & Peace, Grantchester, McMafia, Pride and Prejudice, and Happy Valley. The latter earned him a nomination for the British Academy Television Award in the category of Best Supporting Actor in 2015. It is worthy of note that the film Happy Valley has always remained very close to the actor’s heart to date.

The new James Bond of McMafia has been popular with his female co-stars as the original Bond himself, his name has been romantically linked to several ladies. During his years at Cambridge, he co-starred in a Shakespeare play Cymbeline with Lizzie Crarer who was his college sweetheart. In 2014, the actor’s name was linked to that of Eleanor Wyld who made an appearance with him in the comedy-drama titled Bonobo.

James and actress Jessie Buckley appeared to find love on the set of the BBC epic romp titled War and Peace when they portrayed the characters of Marya and Andrei Bolkonsky (on-set siblings). However, they only decided to come public with their liaison in March 2016 when they appeared at the Olivier Awards at the Royal Opera House London as a couple. The loved-up display they put up at the occasion seemed to cement their status, they made a dramatic entrance together and were inseparable until the end of the event. James Norton truly epitomized the picture-perfect couple as they exchanged loving looks and smiles throughout the event but the spoke in the wheel came in 2017 when their seemingly picture-perfect relationship hit the rocks.

It is common knowledge that the dating life in Hollywood is full of surprises and James’ case is not an exception because he found a new love interest just after a few months of separation from Jessie. He met his latest love Imogen Poots when the duo portrayed the role of an obsessed couple on the set of Belleville which was shown at the Donmar Theatre. Their affair dates back to January 2017 and the couple is not averse to sharing some heavy romantic embrace in public, they were spotted sharing a passionate kiss in December 2017. Their public display of romantic emotions may constitute a heartbreak for his ex-girlfriend Jessie but it sure looks good on the couple.

Although it is not the first time that the British superstar has hooked-up with his co-star, we sincerely hope that this time, their story will be like the proverbial happily ever after as James truly seems to have eyes only for Imogen.

Is James Norton Gay? Partner

Perhaps the rumors about the actor’s gay status went rife when he portrayed the character of Duncan Grant who came in as a gay painter in the BBC drama titled Life in Squares or merely surfaced because of the handsome actor’s physical endowments. Whichever it may be, the rumors were killed stone dead with his very public affair with Jessie. His current love with Imogen has sure sealed the fact that the dude is straight, at least until he says otherwise.

Meanwhile, James Norton has said that he is greatly looking forward to matrimony and family life, complete with kids. According to him, he was brought up with his sister in a close-knit family and their parents are still very much in love up till now and he would like to follow in his father’s foot-step and marry for love that will be enduring and everlasting.
