An exceptionally handsome Australian triple threat, Adam Garcia made an impressive American debut as the boyfriend of an aspiring singer turned bartender (played by Piper Perabo) in "Coyote Ugly" (2000). London theatergoers were already aware of his talents, though, most notably from his starring turn in the stage musical adaptation of "Saturday Night Fever".

Notes

"Tap dancing I can do and I feel very liberated when I dance. But I want to act as well, to take on these small projects where you can fuck up. Getting famous means you lose out on that." --Adam Garcia quoted in Black and White, June 2000.

"Australia's a really raw place and maybe we blokes reflect that. That and the fact that we're just fucking cool, hard as nails. We can bash concrete blocks as soon as we're born. With our penises." --Garcia, tongue-in-cheek, when asked to comment on the ascendancy of Australian actors in Hollywood, quoted in Movieline August 2000.

"Pretending and lying are two diffent things. If you take a role to the place where you're meant to take it, it's really honest. So you don't actually pretend, you arrive in a place where it's true to yourself." --Adam Garcia quoted in Interview, February 2000.
