Race Actor Stephan James Reveals His World Hero; Who Can It Be?

Only a few stars get an opportunity to do biopic movie of great leaders and sportsperson. Amongst them, actor Stephan James is one of the luckiest stars who got a chance to play the role of a great leader Martin Luther King and athlete Jesse Owens.

Despite grabbing the biopic opportunity the actor is still craving to act like his favorite world hero and is vehemently searching for the opportunity. So, for now, let’s find out who is the hero that James is in love with followed by his dating mystery.

The Actor’s Mystery Hero; Another Leader Or Athlete?

Having given an opportunity to portray the famous athlete runner Jesse Ownes, actor Stephan James confessed the runner to be his hero and described him as the personality bigger than the American personality. But while getting hold of a famous runner athlete, Jesse Owens in the movie “Race,”(2016) James revealed his wealthy experience on how he had trained himself to fit in the role and how he precisely delivered the same body language produced by Owens on his legendary game of winning six gold medal at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany.

On an interview with the people.com James further clarified about his intense training and how he looked upon Owens. He said,

“I had to program my body and mind to a very particular style of running, so I had to make sure I was paying attention to the details in how he ran, how he started, how he finished and what his face looked like. Jesse had a terrible habit of popping up right after he started his race and it’s something he fixed over time, but I had to learn the wrong way to do it, and I had to learn the right way to do it because you had to see both in the film. If you asked me to sprint, I’d probably sprint a little bit like him just because I’m so used to running like him.”

The movie further landed the actor with ample of fame and showered with more videos on his doorstep. But despite working on several biopics, James disclosed about his hidden desire of wanting to work as a superhero more than any periodic films or black movies. He mentioned,

“I can’t say I’ve plotted out the next five years or anything like that, I’m looking forward to reading great scripts and telling great stories. I’m not partial to any one thing I don’t just do historical films, I don’t just do black films, period pieces, I want to be able to tell a plethora of stories in different genres whether it’s sci-fi, different thrillers, action films. I want to play a superhero one day, those are the things I think about and just having the opportunity to be able to play characters.”

Well, though the actor has enacted in several biopic movies, he sincerely wants to play the role of a superhero encompassing different genre. Hopefully, he’ll be a part of a film sequel to the movies like Batman returns four or the return of Superman.

Into Any Woman? If Yes, Who Is She?

Stephan James in the year 2016 when talking about his character in the movie ”Race” the actor had revealed about not dating anyone seriously but had disclosed about having fun on and off followed by the qualities he desires in his girlfriend to a source when asked about his dating profile, he said:

“Honestly, I’m only 22, so I’ve just been focusing on my work.That’s the most important thing to me at this point in time. So yeah. I’m obviously having fun and ... yeah  that’s about it. Someone smart, independent, somebody who doesn’t need me, and somebody who’s accomplished and has goals.”

 Besides his dating spree the actor has not disclosed any details with whom he is dating, so there remains a dilemma is he dating a woman or is he gay? While currently there seems to be a hidden shared chemistry between his on-screen co-actress Sanna Lathan of the Shots Fired(2017). The speculation rose when he recently uploaded a picture with co-star captioning it as “Love and Sundance Festival” which was shot at the recent Sundance Festival 2017.

The rumor has not got addressed yet, but they might share an unknown relationship which they want to keep with themselves and enjoy it privately. Maybe with a caption and intimated love quote there exist a confined chemistry but is taking the time to come out publicly till they are sure about it. But at present, James is neither married nor has a wife but if they are sharing a sweet love, hope so James flaunt about her lady love soon if they do not hope so one day he’ll get hold of a perfect partner.
