~ adrian pasdar ~



Adrian Pasdar (American) began his professional life on a college football scholarship. He may have never made it to the world of acting if not for sustaining a serious injury in his freshman year that left him with facial scarring and in a wheelchair. His determination shone through and after intensive physical therapy, he got out of the wheelchair and stepped into an acting career.

He has worked in mainstream film and television, but also supports those who are in the independent sector, taking roles that challenge and inspire him. He is a graduate of the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York.

I first saw Adrian in Mysterious Ways, a series about the investigation of miracles. I was immediately captured by his vulnerability and presence. He brings great depth to this role, and makes the character truly enjoyable to watch.

As an actor: His gentleness, his sensitivity, his ability to play his roles truthfully and without apology.

As a person: His determination, his positive outlook, his lack of pretentiousness.
