Ryan in Emmerdale

James plays Ryan Stocks in Emmerdale.

James joined the cast of the soap in 2018 as Charity’s long-lost son Ryan, who she presumed died at birth.

Charity had been thrown out by her dad when she was held in police officer Mark Bails’ flat for months and he, along with his friends, raped her.

She fell pregnant, but thought the baby had died.

However, midwife Irene Stocks adopted him. Charity and Ryan were reunited and began to build a relationship.

The pair now own the Woolpack together, with Ryan making changes to make it more accessible for people with disabilities.
