Days of our Lives Alumni James Scott Celebrates His Birthday

Actor James Scott, best known for his role as EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, is celebrating his 45th birthday today. Born on January 14, 1979, in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne, Scott began his acting career after a journey of self-discovery. He spent time studying at the Gilded Balloon Theatre in Scotland before moving to London where he was scouted and signed by Storm Model Management, working as a model to further his studies at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. During a brief assignment in Los Angeles, Scott shadowed an acting class at the Ivana Chubbuck Studio, which inspired him to save money and permanently move to L.


In 2004, Scott received his first professional acting role as Ethan Cambias on the ABC soap opera All My Children, a role he played until 2006. Later that year, he joined the cast of Days of our Lives and debuted as EJ DiMera on May 3. Over the next eight years, Scott's portrayal of EJ and his on-screen romance with Alison Sweeney's Sami Brady became a beloved storyline among fans. He received two Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor.

In 2014, Scott announced that he would be leaving Days of our Lives to pursue other acting opportunities. Within a year, he appeared in episodes of Private Eyes and Wrecked. As Scott celebrates his birthday today, Soap Hub extends their birthday wishes to him and invites fans to share their favorite memories of his work or personal encounters with him in the comments section.
