Biography

Adrian Holmes is an award winning actor known for his passion and versatility. He was born March 31st, in Wrexham, North Wales, to Barbadian parents, and grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia where he studied theater and nursing. His love for performing started at a very young age and the quote “Where focus goes energy flows” really put things into perspective for him and allowed for his dreams to come
to fruition.

With over 100 television credits including, Rogue, Continuum and his recurring role as ‘Capt. Pike’
on the CWs Arrow, one of his fan favourites was his recurring role of ‘Basqat’ on the long running
CW series, Smallville. Whether it be on television, big studio blockbusters or more independent
productions, Holmes’ is driven not only by telling a great story but one that challenges and allows
him to really grow and expand as an artist.

Feature Films

In 2010 Adrian played ‘Clifton’ the DJ and love interest to Halle Berry in the independent film Frankie and Alice, directed by Geoffrey Sax. The film captured two NAACP awards including a win for best independent motion picture and also earned Ms. Berry a Golden Globe nomination. His mantra “Be ready so you don’t have to get ready” served him well in his audition for the 2011 feature Red Riding Hood. When asked by director Catherine Hardwick (Twilight) to colour his character with an African accent, Holmes delivered thus transforming the role of ‘Captain’. The film brought Holmes international recognition and allowed him the honour of working alongside one of his favourite actors, Gary Oldman. In 2013 Holmes got to collaborate with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster as ‘Manuel’ in the big budget feature Elysium. Directed by Neil Blomkamp (District 9) Elysium illuminates how a segregated class system creates an unhealthy, unfair and unbalanced world.

The Present

Holmes is currently working on the American remake of the BBC hit show ‘Misfits’, while continuing to recur on the CWs ‘Arrow’ and Craves hit comedy ‘Letterkenny’. Adrian is most proud of leading the cast as ‘Nick Barron’ in the Bravo original series 19-2, which you can watch in its fourth and final season July 31,2017 on CTV. He earned Canada’s top honour receiving the 2017 Canadian Screen Award (CSA) for best lead male in a dramatic series. The show won Best Drama at the 2016 CSAs and was also nominated for Best Drama at the 2016 International Emmy Awards in New York City. It has been hailed by the press: The “Huffington Post” stated, “You will be on the edge of your seats, guaranteed.” The Hollywood Reporter announced, “Rebooted Quebec drama ’19-2′ has breakthrough in English Canada.” Yahoo Celebrity News proclaimed “It’s unlike anything you have seen on Canadian Television” and the New York Times stated “The series is in the tradition of shows like “The Wire,” portraying law enforcement less flashily and less noisily than others, and thus more accurately.”

Adrian enjoys golfing and now splits his time between Vancouver and Los Angeles.
