SAG/AFTRA – NEW YORK
Adam Smith Jr. is an American actor, director and theatre producer born in St. Louis, Missouri. His childhood was spent moving around the U.S. and Canada which demanded of him an ability to acclimate quickly to different cultures. He credits his character work to these early experiences.
In 1997 he moved to New York to train at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. After graduating, he left acting behind and started a career in finance technology and only dabbled in acting for nearly a decade. In 2007, in the middle of the mortgage crisis, he made his full time return to the stage.
Known for his extreme transformation into lovable characters as well as his unique approach to classical work, Adam quickly picked up where he left off. He has performed all over New York stages, in regional theatre and tours. In 2010 he performed to critical praise as the lead in Tom Sime’s MIRACLE DAY and followed up in 2011 to equally strong notices in Juha Jokela’s The Fundamentalist.
In addition to being a fixture in the New York fringe theatre scene, Adam Smith Jr. has also appeared on film and television in small roles. In 2013 he appeared in Thomas Jane’s production of Suckerfish at the Midtown International Theatre Festival alongside Miracle Day co-star Damian Maffei (Christmas with the Dead, Closed for the Season).
He continues to collaborate on new theatrical endeavors and plans to pursue more work on camera.
