The actor who played young William Wallace in blockbuster Braveheart is preparing for fresh film success.
James Robinson, 31, is set to play Psimon – a young man with psychic powers who is haunted by the murder of an old friend.
The movie follows him as he tracks down a serial killer whilst battling with his own inner demons and world governments who decide he is too dangerous to be allowed to roam free.
The feature film will be shot in Edinburgh by Scots director Magnus Wake and is being funded in part by donations from members of the public who will get to play a part in making the flick in return.
Producers have promised “to make the most of Edinburgh’s haunting backdrop” in the fast-paced action adventure that sees the hunt for a serial killer turn into a battle between good and evil.
James said: “Braveheart was an amazing experience. People ask me if it’s something I’m sick of talking about but it’s something I’m really proud of.”
However, despite playing the young Wallace, James admitted he didn’t get to vote in the Scottish independence referendum because he lives in London.
He said: “I didn’t get a vote at all. I’ve lived in London for the last 11 years.”
James said he started out wanting Scotland to vote “no” but ended up changing his mind and hoping the country would vote “yes”.
He discovered he was dyslexic while studying drama at college and said he wants to help other people with the condition.
“I would be reading things three, four, five times. I was diagnosed at drama school when I was 21 and they got computer technology to help me.
“I take in more information through my ears than my eyes. When I’ve got books I need to read I get them on audiobook.”
