James Scully Seven Facts: Explore His Career, Love Life, And All About His Life

James Scully, 27, is an American actor. As the star of TV series Heathers and You, Scully has managed to become a household name, but the relative industry newcomer remains a mystery to the public.

We breakdown who James Scully really is with this list of his seven facts.

7. He Came Out Of Closet

Scully has never shied away from admitting his se*uality. He has come outright and said that he is gay. While the world is more accepting of homose*uality, it is still considered a giant leap, and Scully has since been lauded for his admission.

6. Found Fame as JD in Heathers

After making his on-screen debut in 2016 in the drama series, Sublets, Scully readily found work in other series like Quantico and 9-1-1 before breaking through in the black-comedy series, Heathers.

He was cast in the main role of Jason "JD" Dean and played a major role in the first season of the show.

5. Plays Forty Quinn in Netflix Psychological Thriller, You

Scully transitioned from one high-profile role to the next, this time in the Netflix thriller series, You. The psychological thriller stars Penn Badgley, Victoria Pedretti, Elizabeth Lail, Ambyr Childers, and Jenna Ortega, among others. 

James joins in the second season of the show as Forty Quinn, the hot-headed and rash twin brother of Victoria Pedretti's character, Love Quinn.

4. A Growing Presence on Instagram

Scully brings his brand of flamboyant charm that made him such a hit in You to his Instagram handle @scullynjames. His account is currently at 410k followers, and while some of it might be attributed to his growing popularity, some of it also has to do with his natural charisma.

3. He is an Otterbein University Alum

James Scully was born James Nicholas Scully on 19 April 1992. The 6' actor is a native of San Antonio, Texas.

He spent most of his formative years in Texas and attended Driscoll Middle School and upon graduation, joined LEE High School's North East School of the Arts. 

He attended university from the Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in musical theater.

2. Worked in Off-Broadway Plays

Unlike most youth, James knew exactly what he wanted to pursue from a very young age. He studied the musical theatre program at his university and worked in musical theatre before transitioning to on-screen acting.

1. Has a Net Worth of $500k

James has only been active on the scene since 2016, which makes it all the more surprising that his net worth is reported to be $500k. But considering his high-profile roles in such TV series as Quantico, 9-1-1, Heathers, and most recently, You, it shouldn't be so surprising.

Scully's net worth is only set to increase as his popularity grows- one stellar performance at a time.
