Congratulations to Kirkham Grammar School Old Kirkhamian, James Cartmell, who has been filming for the last two weeks in Birmingham for a lead guest star role on BBC's Doctors which will air in early September. Claire Foy, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Eddie Redmayne and Emelia Clarke all had guest stars on Doctors as their first TV credits.

As well as this, James' has already started recording for the fourth season of DreamWorks Animation series, 'Go, Dog. Go!', on Netflix in which he voices the series regular character, Gilber. Also out now is Where's Wally Season 2 which has been a huge success on Sky TV and sees James voice Wally.

A few weeks ago, James narrowly missed out on a Netflix lead role but is auditioning weekly for some high end amazing projects. Since we last spoke to James, he has also signed with one of the best management companies in LA and has had his US work visa approved at the US embassy so has been auditioning for US projects too.
