Adrian Holmes is a Welsh-born Canadian actor who portrays Michael Fayne on V Wars. [1]


Adrian Holmes grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia where he studied theatre and found his love for performing at a young age. He is an actor known for Red Riding Hood and Elysium. With over 100 television credits including Arrow and the comedy Impastor, one of his fan favorites was his recurring role of Basqat on the long running CW series, Smallville. Holmes is most proud and honored to have helped produce along side Step by Step productions and play the lead role as Errol Barrow in the Docudrama, Barrow: Freedom Fighter. Shot in his homeland of Barbados in 2016 it is an important story about the life and times of Errol Barrow, the first Prime Minister of Barbados in 1966, who fought for freedom, equality and the education of his people.

Leading the cast as Nick Barron on Bravo's original series, 19-2 was also a major highlight in his career. He took home Canada's top honor in film and television in 2017 with the Canadian Screen Award, (CSA) for best lead male in a dramatic series. The show won Best Drama at the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards, and was also nominated for a 2016 International Emmy Award for Best Drama. It has been hailed by the press including the New York Times which stated, "The series is in the tradition of shows like The Wire, portraying law enforcement less flashily and less noisily than others, and thus more accurately."
