Adam Huber has brought several captivating and dynamic characters to life in Hollywood.
Born and raised in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, Adam was enthralled by acting and the entertainment industry from an early age. While attending Penn State University, he enrolled in an introduction to theatre course as an elective, and shortly after auditioned for his first school play. While unraveling his passion for acting, Adam moved to New York City, the optimal setting to practice his craft. While in NYC, he landed his first co-starring role on CBS’ Unforgettable. He continued to build his resume, guest-starring on shows New Girl, Awkward, UnREAL: The Faith Diaries, Animal Kingdom, The Good Place, and a handful of Lifetime movies including Blood, Sweat, and Lies, Room for Murder, and Nanny Surveillance.
This fall he can be seen reprising his role as Liam Ridley in CW’s reboot of the 1980’s primetime series Dynasty. The show follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud over their fortune. While Dynasty showcases the fantasy-like perks of extreme wealth, it also reveals the dark underbelly of a nefarious world built on backroom deals. Introduced at the tail end of season one, Adam immediately became a fan favorite on the show. His character, Liam, is a privileged journalist that is heir to millions yet is still good-natured and authentic, despite his insane family and affluent upbringing. In 2019, Adam secured a nomination for Choice TV Actor Drama at the Teen Choice Awards for his work on the series.
When he isn’t on set you can find Adam with his girlfriend and their dogs, Cowboy and Danger. He loves to play golf, snowboard, hike, and is a fan of all the Pittsburgh sports teams. Adam supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society charitably as he has several people close to him who have been affected by M.S. He is also passionate about animal rescue and working to end homelessness nationwide. Chilled sat down with Huber to get some inside knowledge on his love of a good Martini and his bartending past.
Tell us a bit about the projects you are working on.
I recently worked on the tv show Dynasty. The first two seasons can be found on Netflix. It centers around the Carrington and Colby families. Both very successful and rich powerhouses. It’s a remake of the old soap opera. I play the love interest, Liam, to the lead girl on the show Fallon Carrington, played by Elizabeth Gilles.
With your busy schedule, what do you like to do with your downtime?
In my spare time, I like to cook, workout, and play golf. Being outside, anything active really. I go snowboarding. I love hanging out with my little niece and nephew. I’m a big fan of going to the movies. I enjoy doing things, but I also really love sitting on the couch and watching TV.
When you go out to eat, where do you like to dine?
I like nice restaurants. I enjoy good, quality food. I would rather pay a little extra for good food than to pay less and get more. I also really like bars that have good food. I’m kind of a chicken wing snob. I love Thai and Italian food. I’m also a really big fan of going out and getting Korean BBQ. I will try any place at least once.
What types of dishes do you usually order?
I love scallops, lobster, oysters (only small ones though). I can’t eat the big oysters, they’re too much. I love a good, flaky white fish. Also, a good surf and turf or even some angel hair pasta. Green curry is my favorite. I’m obsessed with pizza, but only wood-fired. More of a New York style pizza guy. I love sushi. I love trying different types of food from different cultures.
Do you cook?
I am starting to cook more. It makes me eat a little healthier. I enjoy the process of making a dish from start to finish.
What types of drinks do you order when out?
When I go out, I first look to see if they have Guinness. It’s my favorite beer. Only draft though. I love a good slightly over dirty Tito’s Martini on the rocks with blue cheese, and olives, in a rocks glass. I do like a good Old Fashioned. Only with a sugar cube, no simple syrup for me.
Do you prepare drinks at home?
I usually drink stuff neat at home, or wine. I will make a Martini if we have olive juice. I like a good reposado or anejo tequila neat or on the rocks. I also like a nice bourbon.
Do you own a home bar?
I don’t own a home bar now. I am bouncing around from apartments currently.
If you did, what would it be like?
It would be stoked with all top notch alcohol. And nice wines. Everything with a good variety. When it comes to alcohol you either drink it to get hammered and you don’t care what it is, or you appreciate what good alcohol tastes like, and can enjoy the actual consumption of it a little more.
What is your favorite cocktail?
Tito’s Martini on the rocks with 3 blue cheese olives.
Have you ever been a bartender?
I never worked at an actual bar, but I did cater bartending for weddings and private events and mixology companies for about 10 years. All right up until I booked Dynasty. I couldn’t count how many cocktails I have made in my life. It was fun though because I learned a lot about alcohol and what ingredients taste good together. That’s how I found my love for Martinis and good quality alcohol.
