James was just 25 when he arrived in the Bay. He was working as a doctor
in a hospital. He has taken a position at the local hospital because
he wants to stay in Summer Bay for as long as he can.
He comes from a wealthy upper class family. Despite this
upbringing, he always has a lot of problems with his mother. He fell in
love with Chloe, who was a girlfriend of his brother, Lachie, who died
from brain damage. He always tried to hide his feelings for a long time
after Lachie moved to America.
When Chloe discovered this, she rejected him; he then
gave her tickets to go to see Lachie in America to fix their relationship.
On arrival at the place where Lachie was staying, she discovered him in
the arms of another woman and returned to the Bay heartbroken, but with
stronger feelings for James.
Chloe gave birth to Olivia and James was there for the
two of them especially when Olivia was taken ill. Chloe felt that she
was taking advantage of him and when Olivia got really sick, she felt

who pointed out that he had other events to prepare for. Chloe showed
James the picture of himself and the wedding resumed, much to the delight
of the congregation.
Months later, both Chloe and James started having problems
when she kept things secret such as the Pill and was being dishonest.
She admitted she did not love him. For James, it was different, he felt
he was in competition with Lachie and the marriage was nothing but a sham.
They broke up and avoided each other and James got himself more occupied
with work. However, they both made their peace and became friends.
Chloe later left the Bay with Olivia and James was missing
her; however, he carried on with his life. James took in two new flatmates
and he likes Shauna; will anything happen between the two?
James got a birthday present from a female admirer, Juliette.
He was reluctant to go out with her. When James decided to leave the Bay
to live on an island, she suggested that she go with her. James eventually
fell in love with her and had a small get-together. It was at this moment
when James announced that he would be going with Juliette. They left the
