Actor & Bass Player
Veronika Adams grew up in Gaithersburg, MD and the San Francisco Bay Area. She was born in Prague to her mother who performs musical theater and opera, and her father who directs neuropathology research. She has one older sister who is a music therapist. Adams is of Czech and Romani ancestry.
She is an explorer and imaginator. Her first acting experience took place in the creek behind her childhood home in Maryland, where she re-created the mystical land of FernGully. Adams later grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she toured throughout the U.S. on electric bass for 15 years.
As an honor student in high school, Adams went on to graduate from University of California, Berkeley, with a degree in Cognitive Science, and trained as a Martha Graham technique dancer.
Establishing herself as an actress in New York City, Adams studies with Sean Folster of The Folster Studio, Patsy Rodenburg, and previously at T. Schreiber Studio, Linklater Voice, and Anthony Meindl. She continues to book leading roles in indie film and theater.
Cinema is her nourishment, acting is her fire, and collaboration is her joy. There is a moment where everything clicks, and life feels eternal and rich. To capture that moment on camera is pure magic. Adams looks forward to collaborating with other imaginators, trouble-makers, and anyone who dares to step outside their comfort zone.
