(actor and co-author)
Adam Bradley was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, where he earned his MA in Philosophy (UBC, 1998.) Realizing that academia wasn’t for him, he was drawn to Vancouver’s film crews, where he worked for 3 years as a lighting technician, best boy, and gaffer. A random resume submission took him to Berlin and Prague, where he lived for 2 1/2 years, organizing a youth leadership conference, acting on stage and screen, and doing voice work for Cesky Telecom, the Czech Republic’s 3rd largest cellular provider. While in Europe he studied with Dah Teatar in Belgrade, and Odin Teatret in Denmark.
He moved to Calgary in 2003 to study with the Loose Moose Theatre Company, and then up to Edmonton, where he took classes at the Foote Theatre School, Alberta College, Rapid Fire Improv, and Chinook Animation Studios. In 2004, he moved to New York to study at the Atlantic Acting Conservatory. After completing the conservatory, he was in three off-off-Broadway productions: Hamlet (Polonius), Julius Caesar (Brutus), and The Stand-Ins (Phil). Since moving to Toronto in January 2007 he has played Lysander in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Alchemy Theatre,) been in 9 short films, 3 commercials, and written two plays and a screenplay for a book, for which he is trying to option the rights.
