Adam Gabriel Garcia (born 1 June 1973, New South Wales) is an Australian singer, actor and dancer from Wahroonga, Australia.
He is best known for starring in the movies, "Coyote Ugly" and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" (with Lindsay Lohan) and his leading roles in the musicals "Saturday Night Fever" and "Wicked!" in London's West End. In 2010 Adam is starring in the West End production of "Tap Dogs".
Garcia (whose father is from Colombia) left university to take the role of Slide in the production of the musical "Hot Shoe Shuffle", which toured Australia for two years before transferring to London. He stayed in England and went on to star in the West End productions of "Grease" and as Tony Manero in the stage version of "Saturday Night Fever" which ran from 1998-1999. Garcia reached #15 in the UK singles chart in 1998, with his cover version of the Bee Gees song "Night Fever", taken from Saturday Night Fever.
Garcia worked with Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth to help create the role of Fiyero in the 2002 workshop of an in-production musical called Wicked. Although he did not star in the Original Broadway production, Garcia did get to play the role of Fiyero again opposite Menzel (and later Kerry Ellis) in the London production that opened in 2006. After almost a year, Adam left the show in 2007.
His television credits include a minor role in the 2005 Christmas special of the BBC's "Doctor Who", ITV's stage school drama "Britannia High" in 2008 and the romantic drama "Mr Eleven" in 2009. In 2010 Garcia appeared alongside Kimberly Wyatt as a judge on the British reality show "Got To Dance".
