Training & Additional Notes

Since his breakout performance in  David Michod’s crime drama ANIMAL KINGDOM, which critics called “outstanding” and “a stunner,” JAMES FRECHEVILLE continues to impress with his chameleon-like range.

He can currently be seen as the star of BLACK 47, which premiered at last year’s Berlin Film festival, and made its North American bow at TIFF.  In this historical action drama, Frecheville plays an Irish Ranger fighting for the British Army during the Great Famine who, shocked by the destruction of his homeland and the brutalization of his people, sets upon a destructive path of vengeance.  He’s supported by an pedigreed cast that includes Hugo Weaving, Jim Broadbent and Stephen Rea.

James was recently seen in the Netflix/BBC thriller, REQUIEM, as a young man who travels to Wales to inherit a fortune left to him by an uncle he’d never met. 
Previously, Frecheville played an overzealous student-turned-jailer in THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT, the landmark 1971 research trial that was notoriously cut short due to the cruelty and sadism that erupted among its participants.  The film, which co-starred Billy Crudup, Oliva Thirlby and Tye Sheridan, premiered at the 2015 Sundance film festival where it was awarded both the Sloan Prize for Science as well as Waldo’s Salt Screenwriting Prize.

Prior to that, he starred alongside Naomi Watts and Robin Wright in the provocative drama, ADORE, which premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.  He then revisited the criminal world with director Michael Roskam for Fox, playing a low-level thief who robs the wrong bar opposite Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini in THE DROP.

Other notable credits include playing the emo rocker boyfriend to Brittany Robertson’s character in Sony’s rom-com THE FIRST TIME for director Jon Kasdan, and a turn as an adolescent Gaby Hoffman’s teenaged crush in the Golden Globe-winning Amazon series TRANSPARENT.
