Mini Bio (1)
Tim R. McAdams began his performing arts career at age 8. Recognized by his elementary school drama teacher for his potential in the arts, Tim was cast in a major role of a school production of, "Pandora's Box". That recognition and play would truly open a box for Tim - a box that would reveal to him his life's passion - performing. Tim performed in a number of local plays and productions (including Howard University). He went on to perform on some of the most prestigious stages in Washington DC from the Kennedy Center, Olney Theatre, to the Arts of Washington.
While performing in the Miracle Worker at the Olney Theatre, Tim was discovered by producers from BET. He was given the opportunity to audition for a new early morning kid's show. The producers and directors immediately took an interest in Tim. He was cast as one of the lead clubhouse kids. This show introduced Tim to the world of film and television. He would go on to perform on multiple television and film projects. As a result of his accomplishments, Tim was given the opportunity to attend Duke Ellington School of Performing Arts, majoring in Theatre.
Tim spent four years studying the Art of Theatre. During that time, he had the opportunity to perform in multiple productions on Duke Ellington's stage. Upon graduation, Tim continued his pursuit of the television and film industry. He had the opportunity to perform in principal roles on networks such as HBO and NBC.
In 2004, Tim was presented with the opportunity to become a stunt performer on HBO's hit series, "The Wire". Embracing the opportunity to expand his scope from strictly acting to other areas, Tim welcomed the opportunity. Following the first episode, he immediately realized another passion. Tim found working as a stunt performer very exciting and gratifying. Stunt performance gave Tim both the opportunity to work on camera (which he loves), and at the same time utilize his athletic abilities, which also fuels his love for contact and high adrenalin activity. Tim has worked as a stunt performer on some of the largest films and most successful television series in the country. In 2012, Tim was offered the opportunity to work as the Stunt Coordinator for a new BET series, "2nd Generation Wayans". This project opened up yet another door for Tim to explore his creative desires.
Additionally, while working on the HBO series, "The Wire", Tim was also given the opportunity to join the Loop Group. This experience gave Tim another valuable skill. Performing voice-over work in the studio enhanced his versatility as a performer. Tim worked in the studio for several years performing ADR work as well as syndication work.
Tim continues to expand his skills and hone his craft within the Film, Television, Commercial, Theatre, Voice-over and Stunt Performer arena.
