This November we caught up with Newcastle’s James TA, always full of positivity and enthusiasm he talks to us about his love of sushi and his man crush.
Who is your hero/who do you look up to?
My hero and the person I look up to the most is my father, he’s worked his way up to the top and is always there for me when I need him, he is always full of advice.
Where in the world would you most like to visit?
It would have to be Australia. I’ve always seen myself going there and not wanting to come back as it looks like a lovely place in photos.
What’s your favourite film and song?
My favourite movie has to be the ‘The Greatest Showman’ because it’s a great movie that shows someone losing everything and then rebuilding to become a better person.
I don’t really have a favourite song, I love music in general and if it’s a happy song and catchy I’ll listen to it all day long.
If you could have any job in the world, which one would you choose?
My dream job would be an actor. Not for the fame but for the end product. Meeting fans and making them smile, and to be able to help the world by doing the things you can with that status.
What’s the best piece of advice anybody has given you?
My father is who I turn to for advice, he once said something I didn’t understand but now I do it means the world; “You have 2 ears, 2 eyes and 1 mouth – use the ratio.”
If you were stranded on a desert island and you could choose three things to have, what would they be?
The first thing would be a survival book for the basics. Then I would like my girlfriend with me so I have some company. Lastly I would like unlimited sushi!
You’re hosting a dinner party and can invite any three people (dead or alive) who would you invite and why?
100% Dwayne Johnson, he’s one of the coolest guys going. Then definitely Kendall Jenner as she is so beautiful! Last but not least would be Chris Hemsworth as he’s my man crush.
What one item would you want to save if your house was on fire?
It would have to be the little teddy bear that my older brother gave to me when I was born. It still sleeps in my bed now.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it would 100% be sushi. It’s so nice and amazing!
For you, what’s the best thing about training at Speedflex?
The best thing about training at Speedflex is the people, the concept is amazing but what makes it even better is the members.
