Born in Wrexham, North Wales, Adrian Holmes is a descendant of Barbados, who grew up in Vancouver and now makes Vancouver and Los Angeles his home. With over 100 television credits including Arrow and the comedy Impastor, one of his fan favorites 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 allows him to really grow and show his versatility as an artist. His mantra of be ready so you dont have to get ready served him well in his initial audition for the 2011 feature Red Riding Hood. Director Catherine Hardwick (Twilight) spontaneously asked if he could do an African accent, Holmes delivered thus transforming his role of Captain.

In 2013 Holmes got to collaborate with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster in the SyFy feature Elysium. Directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9), Elysium illuminates how a segregated class system creates an unhealthy, unfair & unbalanced world. Now in their fourth season shooting in Montreal, Holmes leads the cast of Bravos critically acclaimed original series, 19-2.
