James Seah was one of the Top 10 finalists of “Star Search 2010”. With his charming good looks, the graduate of Nanyang Polytechnic and “baby” of the group consistently earned high marks on the scoreboard during the competition. Unfortunately he came down with chicken pox but took suppressant jabs to pull through the last leg of the competition.

Despite falling short from the top three positions, his suave and cool image won him hordes of admirers and a management contract with MediaCorp. He made his acting debut as a young designer in an advertising firm in MediaCorp’s first web drama Let’s Play Love in early 2011 just before he enlisted into the army.

After serving two years of army, James returns to the screens in Channel 5's 2013 blockbuster Mata Mata, an English drama series set in post-war Singapore in the 1950s-60s.

In 2014, James was cast in his first full-fledged Chinese drama role in The Caregivers, a 20-part serial about health care workers.

James was also given the opportunity to do his first movie role and played one of the male leads in 1965, a dramatic thriller that premiered in 2015 to celebrate Singapore’s 50 years of Independence. In the same year, he was also cast in Channel 5’s first long form drama Tanglin. Aired every weeknight, this 199-episode drama series centres on the lives of multiracial and multigenerational families whose lives reflect the joys, trials and tribulations of everyday Singaporeans.

Apart from acting, James who is skilled in digital media design also enjoys dabbling in other creative passions including drawing and photography.

With a wonderful positive attitude and enthusiasm, James is striving to carve out a name for himself in the local scene.
