Kyle James was born July 29 in Lakeland, Florida to Shauna Barnum and Christopher Rogers. He is the middle child with two sisters, Khyra and Logan.
He started his career by performing in community plays with the ‘Pied Piper Players’ based in Lakeland. He studied acting as a school major starting in second grade at Rochelle School of the Arts and continued his theatrical studies in high school at the magnet school Harrison Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. After high school, he spent six years in the United States Navy in the medical field and was deployed to Iraq twice before being honourably discharged.
Upon leaving the military, he began the serious pursuit of becoming an actor–continuing a long family tradition as well as a personal passion for the performing arts. He sought and gained agency representation, and began auditioning immediately. He continues to pursue his career in film, television, and modelling; now internationally in London, England.
