His mother worked as a paralegal and divorced Adam’s father when Adam was a child. She then married Rodney G. Wright, a minister at a Baptist church.
The family left California when Adam was 7 years of age, and his mother took Adam and his sister to her home state, Indiana.
There, he was enrolled at the ‘Mishawaka High School’ and did some plays during his school days, which laid the foundation of his future career in acting.
