James Scott joins the cast of "Days of our Lives" in the newly created role of E.J. Wells, a worldly and debonair bachelor and renowned race car driver with an unusual curiosity about Salem and its residents.

"I didn't always want to be an actor but within me I always knew I would be," James Scott remarks. "Just a feeling that has lived within me from my earliest childhood memories."

Scott was born in Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England; home of Brown Ale and Newcastle United Football (soccer). The eldest of four children, Scott has two brothers and a sister.

Initially schooled in Newcastle, Scott moved to an all boys boarding school in Lancaster.

After school, Scott moved to Edinburgh, Scotland on a voyage of self discovery. Scott's mother is Scottish and he spent a lot of time in Scotland as a boy. Scott's first summer there he managed to get a job working at the famous Gilded Balloon Theatre and worked with such great actors/comedians as Stephen Fry, Ben Elton, and Eddie Izzard. "They set me in motion, giving me the drive I needed to move forward," said Scott. "Soon it became apparent that I would need to move to London in order to truly focus on this as a career."

After only a few weeks in London, Scott was spotted by the modeling agency STORM, home to many models including Kate Moss and Elle McPherson. Modeling allowed Scott to earn enough money to put himself through school. After applying, and being accepted to, many of London's most prestigious acting academies, Scott enrolled at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA).

After studying there for two years, Scott embarked on his journey to the United States. Scott soon met a man who introduced him to acting coach Ivana Chubbuck - a student of the late, renowned Hollywood acting coach Roy London. Scott believes that her influence, support and belief in him led to his success.

Fans will recognize Scott most recently as Ethan from "All My Children."  Scott recently located back to Los Angeles from New York and lives with his best canine girl, Eva.
