Occupation Actor

Trevor Adams (19 May 1946 – 15 December 2000) was a British actor, best remembered for his portrayal of Tony Webster in the BBC series The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin (1976–79), which he played throughout its entire run, and Alan in "The Wedding Party" (1975), an episode of Fawlty Towers.

Adams attended the former Harold Hill Grammar School, in Harold Hill, Essex from 1957 to 1964 and played leading roles in a number of school plays. Later he trained with RADA and was a member of the National Youth Theatre. He spent a year at Stratford-Upon-Avon before turning to television, where he was often cast as a criminal. He appeared in a variety of programmes in Britain, notably: Fawlty Towers, Public Eye, The Professionals, Z-Cars, The New Avengers and Dixon of Dock Green.

He left the acting profession in 1982, before moving to Norwich for a career in law, which lasted twelve years.[1] He did not appear in the 1996 follow-up to The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, entitled The Legacy of Reginald Perrin, as he could not be traced by the producers.

Trevor Adams died in 2000 after a long battle with a terminal illness.
