James Stewart Quitting Packed to the Rafters to Focus on Baby With Jessica Marais

James Stewart Quits Packed to the Rafters to Focus on Baby With Jessica Marais

Packed to the Rafters is losing another cast favourite: James Stewart. His pregnant fiancée Jessica Marais is apparently ready to give birth any day now, and the actor has decided to take a step back from his career to care for the baby so Jessica can continue working on her US show Magic City. James told TV Week, “The show will go into a sixth season, but I’ve done a few years, so I might be ready to hang up my boots. I just can’t wait to be a dad and that’s my priority right now. We’re moving to America not long after the baby is born — probably three or four weeks. It’s a pretty massive deal, but we have to do it.” A spokeswoman for Channel Seven said the network supported James’ decision “with all our love and support.” James’ news comes less than a week after it was revealed that co-star Hugh Sheridan is deflecting to Network Ten to host the new talent-finding show I Will Survive. Hugh will still appear in a limited number of Rafters’ new episodes.
