Hollywood actor James Marsden returns for his second film in our Own Your Journey campaign. He talks about achieving his goals, the people he has met and the places he has been on the way.
Discover his journey
James Marsden lives the life of a Hollywood actor: never stationary, always moving from one location to the next, with long periods away from home. He has truly experienced the lifestyle of the global traveller first hand. As we go on the next step of his journey, James explores what makes this person tick and why he finds this way of living so inspirational.
"It is someone who understands the key to life is never losing your sense of curiosity – to see how others live. I think operating from a place of fear is always the wrong way to do it. Change is a necessary element in life and it is healthy."
For these changes, James has the wardrobe to match, as he moves up into the heights of the hills outside the city, suited by BOSS for this new situation in our Own Your Journey campaign.

James moves into cooler climes for our Own Your Journey campaign and does it in impeccable style, courtesy of the BOSS Fall/Winter 2017 collection. Designed with the global traveller in mind, the collection takes cold-weather essentials and gives them a signature sartorial rework. Case in point: this padded vest is crafted from a fine virgin wool and cashmere blend.
On this next step of the journey, James considered where he wants to go next and what is on the horizon. "I would love to direct. I’ve always felt it would be nice to be telling a story without a camera pointed in my face – to tell a visual story. I’d also love to finally do something with music. Whether a million people hear it or just one. It wouldn’t matter. I just want to do it." This is the fearless approach to personal ambition that will be key in shaping his journey.
