Adrian Holmes (born 1974) is a Welsh–Canadian actor. He is known for his work on the Bravo television series 19-2, for which he won a Canadian Screen Award in 2017.[2]

Early life[edit]

Holmes was born in Wrexham, North Wales.[3] He moved, with his family, to Vancouver, British Columbia when he was five.[1] He studied nursing at Langara College, in part to appease his mother, who felt he needed a backup plan if his acting career was unsuccessful.[4]


Holmes has had a long career, but is best known for his television roles, such as Basqat on Smallville, Marcus Mitchell on True Justice and Frank Pike on Arrow.[4] His most notable role is Nick Barron in the English Language version of 19-2 on Bravo,[3][4] which garnered him a Canadian Screen Award for Best Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role in 2017.[2] His film work includes Red Riding Hood,[1] Elysium[3] and The Cabin in the Woods.[3]
