James also reminisced about the role that made him a household name, reflecting on the impact Dawson’s Creek had on him.
’25 years ago today… my life changed. Not gradually, not day-by-day… instantly. It was the culmination of 5 years of auditioning, hundreds of hours on stage, thousands of hours traveling, preparing, dreaming, hoping, hearing “no”, and making up reasons to keep going. But the shift was overnight,’ he said.
‘There was life before becoming famous… and life after. Both have their benefits, both have their obstacles.
‘There were also some cool “pinch myself” moments along the way… but the truth is I didn’t know what to do with fame for the longest… because it took me a while to realize it wasn’t actually about me. It’s not a collection of energy… it’s a connection – one that requires circuitry to maintain.
‘It’s not an end game, it’s a tool – one that becomes burdensome if you can’t figure out its utility. And while I used to feel like it created a weird separation from people… now I feel like it connects me in a way I really appreciate.
‘Which is all, really… a long-ass way of saying thank you. Thank you to everyone I’ve encountered as a result of this strange, wild, rocket ship ride, and to my fellow passengers who were strapped in alongside me… it’s good to know you. Makes me happy to see you all doing so well. Happy anniversary, guys.’
