James Moore

What do you do?
I am an actor on Emmerdale.

What has been your greatest achievement?
Winning the National Television Award for best newcomer.

What was been your biggest challenge and how did you overcome it?
Getting people to take me seriously as an actor with a disability, but I gained the confidence in myself and after that other people recognised that.

Who was your role-model growing up?
My dad – he’s a happy, confident person who is hard working, but also takes time to really care for his family too.

What do you think would help more adults with CP achieve their ambitions?
Having an idea of how to achieved them, and breaking it down into steps. Most people see goals as some sort of big picture thing, but goals are a lot more manageable if you can break it down into smaller pieces. What do you need to do to get where you want to be?
