Age and Background Details of Stephen James

It was in Hammersmith, London that the model was born on 4th December 1990 as Stephen James Hendry. Of Scottish and Jewish descent, there is only a little that is known about his family and education.

He grew up in Barcelona but also spent some time in India which later influenced his religious beliefs as he studied Hinduism. This is perhaps the reason why he has a Kali tattoo. Nonetheless, he doesn’t believe in any religion.

Having described himself as a very shy individual, he is extending his craft from modelling into the business world with the start of a bar and barbing salon in Barcelona.

Stephen James does not have a regular story. He is a model who has become popular both offline and on social media where he has come to amass massive followership. Before modelling, he started his career as a footballer but was forced to quit after suffering from an injury. Having made a name for himself as a model and worked with some major brands, here is all to know about his career.

The Journey Through Stephen James’ Football Career

Some may not know this, but James took his shot at football at quite a tender age. He began playing for the youth team of Queens Park Rangers way back in 2005 and stayed with the club until 2006.

He also proved his playing talent while working for the non-league club, AFC Wimbledon in 2008. Thereafter, he relocated to Cyprus to play for Nea Salamis Famagusta. As it has been established that James has Scottish heritage through his father, it should come as no surprise that he went international, competing for Scotland with the Under 18 team.

He got accepted in late 2007 to join the team in playing during a tournament in France. His debut on the international field came during the second match against France when he was selected to be the substitute for Michael Graham in the 65th minute. His subsequent game as part of the team was in a match that ended in a tie with the United States. Stephen was substituted in the 70th minute of the game and it became his last match for Scotland.

He Was Compelled to Quit Football

Stephen James did not just wholeheartedly step away from his professional football journey. It is said that he sustained an injury while playing a game in Barcelona, and was forced to kiss his professional football career goodbye. He was just 22 years old at this time.

The Genesis of His Modeling Career

Following the painful incident of his injury, Stephen found himself slipping easily into the modelling industry as he was discovered by Elite Model Management in Spain in 2012. Since then, he has had a successful run as a model. His works on the modelling scene include working with heavyweight brands such as Calvin Klein, Diesel, Adon Magazine, ASOS, Philipp Plein, GQ Spain, among others. He is also known to model for Sik Silk Company on occasions.

His Body Features Makes Him an Outstanding Model

Stephen James is famous for the hot body he possesses. He has been able to break the rules in the modelling world by pulling off what many models have encountered as a barrier.

His many tattoos and numerous body piercings which could have been a problem to his success happens to be an asset and one of the secrets to his bubbling career.
