James Jagger

The son of celebrity power couple Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, actor James Jagger stepped out of his parents' shadows with roles in "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" (2010), "Mr. Nice" (2011) and "Vinyl" (HBO, 2016-). Born in New York in 1985, Jagger initially had ambitions of becoming a marine biologist but caught the acting bug after finishing high school and went onto land a place at the Lee Strasberg Institute of Film and Theatre. Jagger made his on-screen debut playing one of the iconic composer's pupils in biopic "Vivaldi, The Red Priest" (2009), and subsequently appeared as a builder in country house horror "Knife Edge" (2009). Following his turn as 'Blockhead' John Turnbull in Ian Dury biopic "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" (2010), Jagger portrayed another real-life figure in the shape of Joshua MacMillan, the former British Prime Minister's grandson who died from a heroin overdose, in the adaptation of Howard Marks' memoir, "Mr. Nice" (2011). Jagger then enjoyed significantly more screen time as one of three American expatriates who attempt to steal a large sum of money during the weekend of Argentina's biggest soccer game, in "Stealing Summers" (2011), and joined his mother on screen in "Gangster Kittens" (2011), a gritty drama he also co-produced. The family affair continued when Jagger was cast as Kip Stevens, the nihilistic lead singer of fictional punk band The Nasty Bits, in "Vinyl" (HBO, 2016-), the Martin Scorsese-directed music drama that his father also helped to devise.
