At his London home, Purefoy personally constructed a tree house for his young son.

At boarding school, he once serenaded the girls at a nearby school with thirteen stanzas of “Greensleeves.”

In 1997, Purefoy was voted “hunk of the year” by a British television magazine.

Screen tested for the Bond role in GoldenEye (1995).

The name, Purefoy, is originally Norman French and literally means “good faith” or “my word or bond is in good faith.” Some Purefoys went to England during the Norman Conquest and others emigrated to England as French Huguenot expatriates in the fifteenth century.

He has a son named Joseph born in 1997 with ex-wife Holly Aird.

He was cast as the leading man in V for Vendetta (2005) but departed halfway in having had creative differences with the makers of the film.

James’ co-star in ‘Rome’, Kevin McKidd, also played his love interest in ‘Bedrooms and Hallways’.

Lived with Fay Ripley for more than a decade.
