Lennie James (born 11 October 1965) is an English actor, screenwriter, and playwright. James has appeared in many films, including Les Misérables, Snatch and Colombiana (2011).
Among James' more notable roles in television is Mr. Glen Boyle on the current medical drama Critical on Sky 1. On American television, he portrayed the mysterious Robert Hawkins in the CBS series Jericho and Detective Joe Geddes in the AMC television series Low Winter Sun. James has received praise for his portrayal of Morgan Jones in the popular AMC series The Walking Dead, making guest appearances in the first season and again in the third season. The character has since made three additional appearances before being upgraded to main cast for the sixth season.
James lives in Los Angeles with Giselle Glasman, his longtime partner. They have three daughters together: Romy (born 1990) and twins Celine and Georgia (born 1994). The twins are currently attending Ivy League universities. He is the main cook for his family and has professed a fondness for Caribbean cuisine. He is a fan of Tottenham Hotspur.
James is among the celebrities who have penned an open "letter to my younger self" for The Big Issue magazine. In his letter in March 2015, he wrote about the pain of losing his mother at a young age. "It hit me quite strongly. It had just been the three of us: my brother, my mum and me. Everything changed when the terrible thing happened. It had a profound, fundamental effect on me. One disappointment is that I never knew my mum as an adult," he wrote.
James also works as a mentor to black inner-city kids, and says he rejects the importance people attach to fame and celebrity. "Boys and men in our community need to be aware of the guy who gets up every morning and goes to the job that he doesn't necessarily love, in order to support his family. They are the heroes my community need to celebrate,” he said.
