Guy Adams collects careers like baseball cards. In his, surprisingly limited, time he has tried his hand at Museum Curator, Tour Guide, Historical Researcher, Newsagent…
His main occupations, however, have always been acting and writing. In the former he has mugged people in Emmerdale, watched Rugby in Where The Heart Is, perved around in his y-fronts simulating sex with a woman dressed as a horse (Jean Genet’s The Balcony) and earned something of a reputation by impersonating real people (Hemingway, George Bernard Shaw and Hitler, to name but a few). He also toured as one half of the wittily titled Adams & Jarrett on the comedy circuit and is the youngest actor to portray Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes professionally.
As a writer, he has churned out scripts for the above comedy shows and falsified Elizabethan Mummer’s Plays. A couple of novels, More Than This and The Imagineer have earned nothing but people seem to like them so he doesn’t let it worry him. He is the author of three books about the television series Life On Mars — two for Simon & Schuster and one for Transworld. If nothing else, these have kept him in Gin.
He is currently working on a big book about Sherlock Holmes, a Deadbeat novella or three and a children’s book set in his adoptive country of Spain which he is rather hopeful that one of the previous mentioned publishers will pay him good money for.
