Born and bred in sunny Northern Ireland, James Nesbitt's dreams of playing for Manchester United took a back seat when a school teacher noticed his natural abilities to entertain and encouraged him to join the theatre. It was here where James quickly found his true calling and a star was born overnight when he took the role of the hilariously funny Adam Williams on one of Britain's most successful television programmes ever, Cold Feet. After appearing in Michael Winterbottom's Welcome to Sarajevo and in advertising genius Kirk Jones' feature film directing debut, Waking Ned, James Nesbitt became a British indie film icon and has since starred in Danny Boyle's Millions and Woody Allen's Match Point. James Nesbitt has been a long time supporter of the British Independent Film Awards and took home a Best Actor BIFA in 2002 for his portrayal of M.P Ivan Cooper in Paul Greengrass's Bloody Sunday.
The Roundhouse is an iconic venue that hosted some of the most legendary music performances of the 1960's and 1970's. It was re-opened in 2006 following a £30 million refurbishment and is once again presenting an exciting international programme of cutting edge artistic and music events, as well as hosting an exclusive selection of private and corporate events.
The Roundhouse now also incorporates the Roundhouse Studios, a series of state of the art studios providing a creative environment and facilities for young people to engage with artists, professionals and their peers in order to develop and realise their creative aspirations.
