Although Adam excelled in high school, and reveals he was a good student he just "wasn't interested" and had no desire to go to college and no plans as to what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
He very nearly wasn't the star we all know and love today.
At the time, I was so ambitious and excited that fear never played a part.
Now Adam had the "acting bug" he decided it was time to take a gamble and sign up for more acting classes.
In 1996, Adam's father was watching the Emmy awards when he recognised one of the recipients, an old friend and producer for the hit show NYPD Blue.
In 1999 Adam was seen as the"computer guy" in Jennifer Lopez's debut hit single "If you had my love", this went on to roles in UPN's "All Souls" and guest appearances in "Felicity" and "Resurrection Blvd".2001 came and Adam got the part as Jesse Ramirez in UPN's Sci-Fi series "Roswell".
This was a different role for Adam as his character was a Harvard educated attorney who was married to human-alien hybrid Isabel Evans (Katie Heigl).
He admits he is the first male in his family not to serve at least one four-year term in the Military, but bad eye sight sidelined his interest of becoming an Air-Force pilot.
