James Fact File

JAMES MASLOW: A singer, dancer and actor, James Maslow stars in the live-action comedy series, Big Time Rush. Maslow is the antithesis of his character James, who has the biggest ego of all his friends and believes that he and the group are the coolest guys ever.

Maslow was raised in La Jolla, Calif., after being born in New York City on July 16, 1990. After moving from New York to Florida to Chicago, the rising star finally settled with his family in La Jolla, Calif. at the age of six. Maslow joined the San Diego Children's Choir, igniting an undying passion for singing and performing. "Some of my favorite memories are singing at the San Diego Padres game with the Children's Choir and performing in La Boheme with the San Diego Opera," he said. Determined to be an entertainer, he transferred to San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts, which was approximately thirty miles from his home, in eighth grade -- knowing that he would have to get up at five in the morning to catch the bus and getting home sometimes took up to four hours. He then attended the Coronado School of the Arts but decided an independent study program was better for him after he was told to choose between the arts or football.

Recently, Maslow guest starred on iCarly as the cute boy who causes a rift between best friends Carly and Sam when they fight over who saw him first. He also stars in the independent feature Mean.

"Singing is what got me into everything and made me fall in love with this industry," Maslow said. "Both singing and acting are so rewarding that I couldn't pick between the two." Thankfully, he doesn't have to choose as his new role allows him to do it all. He adds, "The great thing about playing James is that as an actor, I get to take it to the extreme, and it's fun to show off when you're being asked to do that as the character is completely self-absorbed and is always making a fool of himself."

As a singer/songwriter who plays the piano and guitar, Maslow feels this project "is a dream come true" and he is ready for "the big challenge to do it well and to do it right."

When he has a moment to spare, Maslow loves surfing, riding horses and mountain climbing. This past June, he climbed Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain in the continental U.S., in frigid winter conditions. Maslow also currently finds time to train in Saito Ninjutsu, a form of martial arts his father introduced him to at the age of 10. Maslow spends much of his time on the 5 freeway driving back and forth from San Diego to Los Angeles and hopes to lay down roots in L.A. soon with his yellow Labrador, Falco.
