  1. Good looking, great actor….good with Sammy…they have a love hate kinda love ..and I think it’s rather sexy….keeping them together …

    • OK, unlike Galens bio, you didn’t mention if James was married or had a family. It’s great about all his accomplishments etc., and we all love him on Days, if you didn’t you’d be dead! I know I would have loved to read about that too.
      Thank you. It goes without saying we all love his accent, it’s natural and something that adds to the show. He’s tall, handsome and so likeable. If only I were younger……..

  2. i think James Scott would be very good playing Christian Grey in fifty shades of grey

    He’s my favorite actor on Days…so hot and sexy! Ive been watching him since day one and think he is so talented. Sammie is one lucky lady! :)


    James Scott you are talented and so adorable thank you for entertaining me on Days it is always exciting watching each day and I can related to many parts of Days in my own life. I got to meet Allison in Tulsa a few years back maybe one day I will get to meet you.

  5. WOW, now that’s some good Days’…those last scenes with Sami,in bed, where she was the aggressor and his reaction to it, made my day….I’m an ole lady, but I sure liked it!!! Yabba Dabba Doo……if you get my meaning! LOL
    But you don’t have to have that kind of drama to get back to the “OLD” Days shows. Just get the writers on the ball and get this thing rolling……it can be good again, I know it! Bringing back some of the old characters for a short time might help, I know you’re trying that…just keep the younger ones going with great scripts and we might just have a hit again. It was rather dragging for a while; I’m beginning to see something good starting………keeping my fingers crossed. Just don’t drag story lines out for so long.
