Stephan James got his start in television landing a recurring role in the long-running series Degrassi. He landed his first major feature film role playing opposite Tatyana Ali and Fefe Dobson in the 2012 film Home Again. John Boyega had originally been tapped to play the lead role in the Jesse Owens biopic Race, but was offered Star Wars: Episode VII, opening the door for Stephan James to play Owens in the inspirational Olympic tale, for which he was given a Best Actor Canadian Screen Award in 2017. In 2019 he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the category Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series-Drama for his work opposite Julia Roberts in the series Homecoming.
