Jamie said that in 2001, aged 19, he had dropped out of university and was looking for something else to do.

The Northern Irish actor, briefly attended Teesside University in in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire but dropped out and was back in his native Belfast.

‘I decided I was going to drop out of university cause it wasn’t the right space for me at the time.

‘I was like, “F*** this, I’m going to do something else with my life”. But I didn’t have a plan and my dad was really worrying. “What’s your plan going to be?”‘

It was Jamie’s sister who convinced him to apply for a reality TV show, which led to his eventual move into acting. 

The show, Channel 4’s ‘Model Behaviour’, was one of the first reality shows of its kind, and was a search for a model to win a contract with a top modelling agency.

After much persuasion from his family, Jamie eventually agreed to try out for the show but said he would only go if his friend went with him.

‘No kid where I’m from grows up wanting to be a model, I’ll tell you that,’ he said. ‘And so I was like, “No, I’m not doing it”

‘She said, “Just do it, do it”. Anyway, I convinced one of my mates to come with me who is like a relatively handsome dude. I was like, “You’re coming with me, I’m not doing it alone”.’

However, on the day of the audition, Jamie’s friend, who was supposed to accompany him, changed his mind and wouldn’t get out of bed. 

He continued: ‘I called him on the way there and I was like, “Dude I’m going to pick you up outside your house in 10 minutes” and he goes, “Nah, I’m not going”.

‘I was going “Mate you have to come, my sister’s going to kill me, dad’s going to kill me if I don’t go.”

‘Anyway, I convinced him to get out of bed and I went and he got kicked out early doors and I like did all right. 

‘I actually didn’t even do that well on the show, but it got me enough to sort of move to London. And that was it.’ 

Jamie said that he thanks his friend ‘all the time’ for going with him to the audition that sparked his career, and says if he hadn’t gone he thinks he would have been a real estate agent.

‘I wouldn’t be sat here if he hadn’t got out of bed that day, I truly meant that,’ he said.

‘I would have worked out something else, I would have been a real estate agent, I honestly would have found something else to do.’

As a young model in London, he went on to appear in campaigns for Abercrombie and Fitch, FCUK, Hugo Boss, Dior Homme, and Calvin Klein.

Jamie’s next big role will be in the comedy Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar with Kristen Wiig which is released on-demand in the US this weekend.
